well we have just arrived home after 4 months of "outback travel" covering all States.
Your OZ HITCH has performed above and beyond ALL expectations! It was not your average grey nomad trip that we find the majority of "off road" vans/ campers doing, mainly bitumen.
We have covered over 10,000 km's on minor & major dirt tracks. It included many sections of serious four wheel driving in first low with both diff locks engaged.
Our OZ HITCH is as good as the day we left, with NO noticeable wear, even after being put to extreme angles and conditions!
The trailer in tow weighed between 1745kg's and 2250kg's as we can carry up to 390liter's of water and 3x 9kg gas bottles. It is a serious custom camper fitted with 3000 kg Sugar Glide suspension. At times the angles of difference between vehicle and trailer were truly unbelievable..
What a hitch! If ever you need for me to speak to an interested person i would be only too glad to give a truly honest view.
I will never use any other hitch except an OZ HITCH on any future trailers.
My reason for making it easy on my best mate (my wife) is that I am a complete r/h leg amputee. NOTHING stops us!!

I’ve heard the question before “Is there ever a time when an offroad hitch is not ideal”?
This question brings up a few scenarios for me where I haven’t had an offroad coupling and was worried about weather I would break the ball coupling and hence be left stranded. One of the scenarios was exiting the Moreton Island ferry years ago when I towed a std box trailer over to the island. On arrival there was a very steep beach to climb starting right at the base of the exit ramp of the ferry. This gave a steep decent from the ferry and a fairly steep immediate accent up the beach making the overall angle a lot to ask of a std ball coupling. I could hear the offroad hitch and ball groaning as I went through the angle, luckily without breakage. So the question I ask myself is what would have happened if it did break and how would this have affected my holiday?
So I ask. Do you pay insurance on your home? Car? Boat etc. Im sure you do and you pay it every year at the rate of between $400 and $3000 per insurance every year. Buying an offroad hitch is a once of insurance policy that will make sure the stresses of “will we be OK” will be one thing less you need to worry about and worth every cent to pay for it and lets face it you only have to pay for this insurance policy once. When buying offroad hitch and trailer accessories some are worth there weight in gold and some are not that necessary. To me off road couplings When buying a hitch there are a few things to consider so have a look here.
