cushioned tow bar

I purchased one of these to eliminate the noise associated with the receiver clanging inside the hitch while towing. I also hope that the cushion will have similar effect as shocks and my trailer will not be as frazzled after a tow.
I have used it once and it seems to work very well.

They do work very well, for those that are alittle more frugal, I use a cedar shim about 1.5 inch wide and some electric tape to hold it in place. htis may not be the most ideal way but certainly is cheap.

That's what I'll be doing the next time I pull ours.It tows really smooth and quiet as long as your on the road,but when going slow through parking lots or campgrounds it clangs around alot.

This is what I use for the anti-rattle

but this set up is supposed to cushion the trailer somewhat also by putting rubber cushion for vertical and horizontal movement. I guess the ideal setup would have both.
