Trailer Toad, the ONLY hitch that puts NO WEIGHT ON THE TOW VEHICLE.
Protects the frame, suspension tires, sidewalls and rear cap on motor homes and reduces sway like no other hitch.
Are you towing a trailer over 7500-lbs with your motorhome; Class A diesel, gas or a Class C or a truck camper?
Are you considering getting a motorhome to tow with to make your weekends at the track more comfortable for you and the family?
In almost every case an enclosed race car trailer will have enough tongue weight to exceed the ratings of the motorhome. What does that mean for you?
The frame will be overloaded and will be flexing going down the highway. When the frame flexes so does the motorhome floor and sidewalls.
Especially susceptible to damages from frame flex are the slide-out openings and the structural framework.
There is only one trailer hitch on the market that offers you “Zero tongue weight” being transferred to your motorhome frame, the Trailer Toad. Nothing else comes close to protecting your investment you have in the motorhome and offer the stability and safety the Trailer Toad offers.
Yes, you can back up.
Yes, you can turn corners just like before.
Yes, we have spare parts readily available if you need them.
Yes, you need to supply a weight-distribution hitch or we can supply one with your order.
We have two models to choose from. The decision is based on the tongue weight of your trailer, the overall trailer weight and if you are a “commercial / high-mileage hauler”. Both models operate the same way but the capacity of the axles and structure are stronger on the 5000SD model.
The two models are; the 3500HD and the 5000SD.
3500HD: $3495.00 ($200.00 discount for non-credit card purchase makes it $3295.00, same price for the last 3 years)
This model has been available for about 6 years and is a proven road-worthy piece of equipment. A custom-made 3500-lb Dexter torsion axle with EZ-Lube spindles is the foundation of this unit. It is built to handle up to 1000-lb tongue weights and loaded trailer weights to 11,000-lbs. This type of trailer is usually the 22’ to 30’ enclosed two-axle trailers. You get everything you need to complete the install except for the weight-distribution hitch (since most customers already have one we do not include them). If you do not have a quality W.D. hitch we can supply one at a discounted cost.
5000SD: $3995.00 ($200.00 discount for non-credit card purchase makes it $3795.00, same price since its inception over three years ago!)
This is the “Super-Duty” version of the Trailer Toad and has been on the road for about four years. A custom-made Dexter 6000-lb rated torsion axle carries the tongue weight and the larger hubs and spindles of the 6000-lb axle make it nearly indestructible. The 5000SD works on smaller trailers but it is designed for the stacker trailers and longer three-axle trailers with tongue weights that range from 1000-lbs to 3000-lbs and loaded trailer weights from 10,000-lbs to 25,000-lbs.
Trailer Toads are 100% American-made in our Minnesota shop.
Powder-coated to offer the best paint protection
Pulse-mig fixture welded for durability. The frame carries a limited Lifetime Warranty to original buyers.
We use the best 10-ply trailer radials we can get.
We use Torklift trailer wiring extension cords,
Hand-sewn spare tire covers and of course every Trailer Toad comes with a 10-ply spare tire and wheel that matches the tires/wheels we install.
Improve your towing experience, eliminate sway, improve your braking as the Toad will not allow the front of your motorhome to get “light” when the rear is jammed down in hard braking with a conventional hitch.
Coming in January, 2017:
1. Super Duty 15” all-steel trailer radial. The ST225/75R15 F-rated all-steel construction will be an option. It comes with a special steel wheel that is rated specifically for this HD tire.
2. 8-lug Option- This will be available for the 5000SD only and will include steel 8-lug wheels, ST235/85R16 G-rated Trailer Radials. This option is for trailer owners who have 8-lug wheels on their trailers and want wheels and tires to be interchangeable.
3. Super-Duty Hydraulic Stabilizer shocks are now available. They fit all previous models of Trailer Toads. $139.95 for a pair. Heavier shafts and tougher seals to extend service life.
4. “Everest Edition”. We are working the details out with Torklift Ind. So we can make a custom-ordered model of the Trailer Toad that will use the new Torklift “Everest 30K” weight distribution hitch components. This is the strongest weight distribution hitch on the market and will require some fabrication on the coaches’ frame hitch to properly attach to the motorhome. Not a simple bolt-on but if you want to ultimate hitch setup to protect your coach and you have a 20-28,000-lb trailer there will be nothing better than the Trailer Toad 5000SD and the “Everest Edition Package”.
If you want to protect your coach, tow with more stability and not beat up the contents of the coach or the trailer you have one choice; the Trailer Toad.
Call us, text us, email us or check out the website if you have questions. We are in business for one reason; to make your trailer towing a better experience.
