Equalizer 4 Point WHD Storage

Sorry if this has been mentioned before. What is a good way to store this when not in use? It weighs a ton and I am putting on the floor of the garage. Will this be okay? Thanks.

Not the same hitch.

I built a dolly to put my hitch on so I would not have to walk it out to the truck.





You could go to Harbor Freight and buy one of theirs and then screw a sheet of plywood on top for your hitch to sit on.

I used to put my hitch head on a piece of plywood to keep it off the concrete. No problems. I also used to put it in the kids old radio flier wagon to move it around.

Mine goes in the corner of my garage, nothing special used, just try to keep it out of the weather.

I bought a small moving dolly at Princess Auto (Canadian version of Harbour Freight) on sale for $10 and put a blue recycling box on that for storage of the Equalizer hitch head, L pins, snap-up lever and other accessories.

When camping the hitch stays locked in the receiver on the truck. At home it stays in the garage. The spring arms are stored in an old camping chair bag.

We store ours on a bottom shelf in our garage. I bought HitchGrip HG712 Orange Hitch Coupling Tool
by HitchGrip
Link: https://amzn.com/B00HSO37B0 from Amazon to help with carrying it.

We put the anti-sway bars in a rifle case in the pass-through storage in the TT.

Bars, pins, etc to in the driver side pass thru storage door (too narrow for the head).
The head goes just inside the main camper door, on a couple pieces of 2x6.
In other words, everything stays with the camper. I don't see a reason to let any hitch items take up space in my garage.
