I have a Curt hitch on the front of my Ram 1500 i use it for a cooler rack/fishing rod holder for the beach. No complaints

Has anyone used their front receiver hitch to park their trailer in a tight spot? I keep my 19RR and a utility trailer on one side of my house behind a double gate and my 21' boat on the other side of my house behind a double gate. The side I keep my boat is very tight only 10' from side of house to where fencing is, plus I have to back around my A/C compressor.

While putting the hitch on the front and being able to turn the front wheels might help maneuvering, I would think it might be very difficult to see the left side of the trailer (passenger side of the truck when hitched to the front bumper) without the use of mirrors and such.

I just saw the Curt Hitch for the 2007-2012 Tundra for $115 on Ebay including shipping with no drilling required (though I have read you have to trim your skid plate unless you want to take the hitch off each time you do an oil change).

Just looking into what people think about the use of front hitches for parking... my 19RR is a toy-hauler, so I would not use the front receiver for a bike rack... maybe a cargo rack if I bought a generator, but boy, I would put some poles on the front corners so I don't forget it is out there!
