An excellent review of the latest Ezy Hitch Coupling.
I have the original 5 tonne version which has been trouble free for more than 5 years and has proven way better to use than the previous Heavy capacity Hitch I had purchased from another manufacturer.

I believe product reviews about as much as Google's medical diagnosis.

Shameless you say?? It is not my magazine, just like Explore oz is not my forum.
A well intended reference and you feel that way, how unfortunate.

It certainly reads like a sales pitch and perhaps you should show yours and how easy it is instead of posting video references to watch via a page.
It looks cumbersome to me and it has additional sleeves to protect the inner and outer of each part when not hitched. Lots of bits to keep up with.

So seeing you handle it with ease would be more readily accepted. Simply saying it is good doesn't persuade many.

I agree it does read like an advertorial/sales pitch as do similar product reviews. The Hitch is simple to use although it does appear cumbersome compared to a standard on road hitch. The covers/caps are complimentary to the product and serve to keep dirt and dust out. I only use the cover for the post - bit like any tow ball cover stopping grease getting on things. The Product [in my opinion] is very good as compared with three alternate Off Road Hitches I have used over 12 years. At least two well known Off Road Van Manufacturers now use the Ezy Hitch as standard. Also agree the benefit to readers of an original review by posters. I could have named prior hitch's and the differences as I see them, but seek to avoid starting a protracted debate as to merits of other posters choices. Bob

Well good on you Bob. I wouldn't have seen this unless someone brought my attention to it. I travel a lot and find it difficult keeping up with all the latest developments. I agree that many such articles highlight only the positive aspects and not the negative but we all know that. Don't let the nay sayers get under your skin.

Yair, well I couldn't see any problem with Bob's link to a review. That happens plenty of times on this forum when someone appreciates a product and posts a reference to it.

At least it wasn't a droning video from 'He With The Big Hat'. lol

P.S. does Bobji own an "online magazine"? Wow!
Ivan, ya gotta stop drinkin' that battery acid! lol
Cheers
Allan

Very impressive, however, I find the McHitch Auto Coupler also very easy to use. Once you have the coupler on the van lined up approx. with the receiver on the car, the coupler locks in place as you reverse onto it. The wide mouth of the receiver allows for some "missallaignment" between the car & the van.

I guess with anything, everyone has their own opinion, this is mine.

I was planning on getting a McHitch fitted to the camper that we just bought Macca, but the camper came with an Oz Hitch, so I'll leave that on for a trip & see how it goes.

If it doesn't work out, the McHitch is at the top of my list :)

I have one and find it a great bit of gear very easy to hook up and unhook at all angles and with a reversing camera it is a one man job.
