Is Hitch-n-go awkward without telescopic arms? We are buying a new Vitara to tow behind our 28' Swagman. Which brand of A Frame is most popular?

I don't find any problem with the hitch n go A frame. Must hook onto car first and then drive forward onto tow ball. Can do it on my own with the use of a rope to hold coupling up.
A very simple system with nothing to fail.

Thanks Neil
I have been quoted $3100 for Hitch-n-go fully fitted and certified. $4500 for the Ready-Bute to do the same.
I believe the beauty of the latter is that the telescopic arms and fold away feature make it much easier.

I agree others are easier to attach than the hitch n go but before I got mine I came across someone that had a telescopic arm unit and had bent the arms. They were having no end of trouble getting things to lock in correctly. No idea how they bent the arms but they said they turned too sharp. Frightened me me anyhow.

We are currently in a park near Yeppoon and a chap here has a Falcon 2 system. He has just completed a 2 year approx trip around the block and swears by the ease of it. He has just left here and it took him no more than 10 mins to complete the hook up and checks and be on his way. He advised this was the company to go to and highly recommended them. Hope this helps.
