These have been around for a long time. I once considered buying one but had concerns about possible eventual damage to the jack leg if it was frequently forced to slide sideways while under full load. FWIW, I've never known anyone to own or use one. I would think that they would be very popular if they worked well.

Hmmm, that's something to consider. Never thought of that.

If you had a trailer with a light tongue weight, and had the jack resting on a wheel that was facing to the side (instead of front to back), that puppy might work. Other than those parameters, I am like Richard and would think it could do more damage than good.

I doubt my 28' Grey Wolf had a light tongue weight and it has no wheel.....although I am thinking of changing that. I am just trying to make this hitching process easier. I have yet to do it, but want to have a chance at success when I do.

I use something like this: Align-Quik Hitching Guides

Actually I like that better than what I have.....mine are telescopic but not adjustable for tilt.

And I fine tune it with this setup:

As you can see, I need all of help that I can get so I don't have to crawl in and out of my truck a 1/2 dozen times.

I bought those two sticks to use. One broke coming out of the package. I will probably re-buy them.

You can also buy aftermarket rear view cameras that mount to the license plate bracket. My Denali has built in rear view camera and I swear I will never be without one...makes hitching up soooo easy! And with the newer Denali's and some newer trucks, the hitch has been moved up into the bumper making the need to be careful even greater so that you don't scratch or dent things up.
