I just got an email back from Roadmaster asking about the play in the receiver, drop and my tow bar. They suggested this device that is a little cheaper than the one above.

Roadmaster Quiet Hitch Part Number 061 for 2" hitches.
Bought two of them with free shipping on Ebay for $24 each.

Iggy,
It seems that would stop up and down slack but not the side to side. What do you think? I seem to get a lot of side to side and want to do something about it.

Had the same problem, totally fixed it for $25 at camping world quiet hitch, including side to side.

If you indeed have a full 1/4" gap, cut a 1.75" square of steel and counter drill a 3/8"dia hole about 1/8" deep in alignment with the hole drilled in the collar.
Another spelling mistake of mine, should be drill and tap, not tape. I guess I will have to proof read before hitting Enter.
