Wrestling with the Equalizer

OK, based on multiple positives here I broke down and just now ordered the Hitch Grip. Now, my question is whether anyone has a great solution for storing the Equalizer head? I don't like to leave it out on the receiver. The best thought I have at the moment is to find or build a wooden crate; I tried what seemed like a nice sturdy plastic box but the heavy head shattered the plastic.

Here are some cart ideas for you. If you can store/haul these, both would "find" many other uses, too. The Aerocart can be used as a lever or jack to raise your hitch into place if the hitch is placed on the base and tilting it with the handle.

A small aluminum floor jack is light weight and storable. Maybe attach a small platform to it. I'm totally sympathetic to a bad back. Had one since I was 18.

My trailer is in an enclosed lot under cover and locked up. I keep my hitch and bars locked in the basement. That way it is there when I get there and, due to an adult sized brain-fart, not 9 miles away sitting in my garage. Don't even ask how I know this better. Hah!!

If they break into the fence and gate, I'm sure they have better things to steal than my hitch.

Just a thought. How would a rolling floor jack work for this purpose? We carry one in our tool box, it lifts pretty high, and is steerable. The problem would be the small wheels getting over the door sill into the house.

You might also consider using a two-wheel dolly with blocks built to the height of the hitch. Place the dolly under the hitch as you remove it, Tilt back and take it where you want to go. The 2-wheel dolly is also a back saver around the house. As I write this, it came to mind that there is a folding 2-wheel dolly/4-wheel dolly that could do the trick.

When I'm not camping, I store the hitch in my garage up against a wall as out of the way as possible. When I'm camping, I typically leave the hitch on my TV and I lay the bars across the A-frame behind the propane tanks.

Equalizer Hitch

Hitch grip plus a rough wooden box I designed and made to keep it in the back of my truck.
