What's the point of this product? Is it simply to make it easier to hitch up your trailer? Sounds like a product in search of a problem.

I wouldn't want to compromise my hitch (in terms of stength and potential failure points) just to make hitching up easier, especially when it's not that hard to do.

Am I missing some other purpose of this Swivel Loc hitch?

I'm thinking it's more of a thing of if your trailer is loaded down and you have a bigger truck. Capacity is 6000 pounds. And if it's hard for you to get around (like older people or people with back problems etc) it makes life simpler. great in theory. There are videos on YouTube about it.

I watched a couple videos, and I personally could find much better ways to spend $140 plus shipping just to save myself 2 minutes re-setting my approach to the trailer. My popup is in a pretty tight spot with as big as my F-250 is, but I can still hook up and boogie solo.

There are a lot of moving parts on that hitch too. I'd be nervous.

Anybody who thinks they should have to muscle their trailer anywhere needs to not pull a trailer. Just my humble opinion.

That's what I was thinking. I've got several different trailers (from a small flatbed to a large enclosed car hauler), and I've never needed something like this to get hitched up.
