Shrink the pic down in Paint. You want kb's. Or do photobucket.

Have you seen the Max Coupler hitch?

Check out this build thread. You can build your own from Tractor Supply Hardware stuff.

Yeah but that one assumes you have a welder capable of making some decent penetrating welds. I have a cheap HF $80.00 flux core welder.
I have the materials list and blue prints for that one but decided against it because of lack of correct tools i.e. a decent mig welder. But I could slap one together in a few hours if I had the welder.

How much and where to get? I was looking at a Lock and Roll hitch.

And they provide peace of mind! No worries the damn hitch is going to come apart on the trail.

Here is mine when I first got it. the first photo lifted from the C/L ad.
The 2nd was about a week after I got it. I had just finished replacing the 67 y/o hitch.
