Caravan World — 17 December 2009

The Ozhitch, a new 3.5-tonne offroad hitch that easily connects your van or trailer to your tow vehicle by lowering your jockey wheel, is expected to hit the shelves in the new year.

The top loading mechanism is said to self align for fast and easy loading. The hitch is ADR approved, has a horizontal articulation of 360°, with a 90° rise and 85° fall.

The hitch was designed by Norman Hudson (shown), co-founder and former director of Camel Campers, and is expected to retail for around $280.
