The Hitchmaster DO35 is possibly the pick of the All Terrain couplings being far easier to line up that most of the Poly Block type.

garny - saw this one the other day whilst looking around for something else. It is called the Ozhitch.

Google ozhitch which will lead you to site which explains all.

I have used the Hyland hitch on all my vans. It is a lot easier IMHO to connect and remove than a Tregg.

Include the Hyland in your considerations.

The Trigg hitch is virtually the same poly block setup as the Treg (but cast - not forged like the Treg) - had one on my first camper - had the Treg on our second camper - both were fine. Now we have a Hyland hitch on the caravan - took me a while to learn how best to work it (often can't move the car or the van easily for those last few mm's :-o)..... but I'm happy with it now.

Thanks to all for the info Hyland seems the way to go
just a little concerned with the hand brake locking which is atached to the original hitch on my van
would the hyland come with the same attachment

There are variants in the Hyland range - this may be a useful guide............

garny,

With regard to the brake concerns give Brian Hyland a call and ask him yourself. He a really nice guy and would be very happy to discuss any questions you may have.

Brian Hyland's phone number 07 3200 6261 (Beenleigh sth of Brisbane).

They are a great coupling and very easy to use. You can buy them directly from Brian if that suits.

The usual declaimer here, as apart from being a happy customer, I have nothing to do with Hyland.

Garny,
Crackles is right on, as I've had a Hyland and now have a Hitchmaster D035.
The D035 is a stronger unit and 2nd choice would be the Hyland as it is easier to hitch up than a Tregg. The D035 is very simple to use much like dropping onto a ball like the Hyland but it's a tapered pin-like arrangement so it will pull on when near enough.
I think you'll find the prices will be similar.
Cheers
Harry.
