Hi there, I am going too "lift" my jayco camper soon, bigger rims/tyres, new axle/springs etc; and I was thinking of fitting a new hitch like the Treg or Orac, but yesterday I spotted this awesome looking off road hitch that uses a normal tow ball, but gives as much movement and articulation as the Orac coupling. This means that you don't have to swap things around if you want to tow a normal trailer after having the camper hooked up. The guy who ownes the rig told me a bit about it, but after doing a search on the web I can't find anything about where they're made or where I can get one.

It's called Hyland. Any info would be appreciated

(I'm in Perth)

Cheers,

Muzz

I started a website for him, but never heard back..

I have one at home new in a box...

But on closer inspection I think I would rather a Treg or Orac...

It comes with a towball as well, so I dont know if there are any differences.

They are the first pics I've seen on a hyland coupliing. They look like a pretty good coupling. Do they perform as well as an orac or treg?

Hi Leroy

I have one on a Jayco camper trailer and it's been great. I've been everywhere my friends have been with a Treg coupling and it has the added advantage that it fits a standard 50mm ball.

As Truckster mentioned, they come with a ball, because (as Darren Hyland explained to me) there are various load ratings in 50mm and he supplies a 3500kg one.

Its a pretty heavy bitch of a thing... will let u know tomorrow what the stamps on the box equalled first.. Will be cheaper than new trust me.

email me to remind me LOL fu_kew@hotmail.com

Leroy.
I like the idea of Orac and Treg for the point that nobody can steal your trailer without the other 1/2 of tow hitch.

Thanks truckster, spot on again! I spoke to Darren Hyland, he gave me all the info I needed and was very helpfull.

As far as I can tell, and from talking to the owner of a windup camper with the Hyland hitch fitted, it works as well as an Orac but you don't have to change over for towing a normal trailer. It comes with a 3 tonne rated towball, and the hitch itself is rated to 2 tonne.

Cheers,

Muzz
