Welcome to Trailer Toad
Home of the World's most unique
"Weight-Bearing Hitch".
There is not a better way to protect your tow vehicle from
damages and handling issues that are caused by
excessive tongue weight.
Take your time, look through our website and if you have questions;
email us at trailertoad1@yahoo.com or call us at (319) 404-7001. 



We get a lot of questions on shipping the Trailer Toad. They weight between 800-900 lbs when strapped to our custom made 140-lb wooden pallet. We are trying hard to give the best prices on truck freight by offering our Economy Freight Sale for $299.00. It takes a little longer to arrive so if delivery time is crucial, we offer Priority Shipping. We can get you a quote in about 10 minutes but it is critical that we know if the delivery is to a Commercial address with forklift or a dock. If you need it shipped to residential address and need a liftgate, we can get a quote on that as well.
 
 
*Economy Shipping Restrictions: 
1. Delivery must be to a verifiable "Commercial Address" with forklift or dock.
2.  Due to conflicts as to what is a "Commercial Address" and what isn't, the rates can vary by several hundred dollars. Due to this we are going to implement a "new policy" on the freight.
3.  We will require a valid credit card number to hold as security in the event the freight company charges additional fees for "residential or limited access delivery" or for "Lift Gate services". We will also require a "reply" to an email that you accept this new policy on the $299.00 Flat Rate Freight Sale.
 
Economy Shipping has no delivery date or pickup date guarantees. 

Accelerated, Priority and Insured Shipping quotes available
 just ask when you call.

The Trailer Toad carries 100% of the tongue weight

No other hitch can do what Trailer Toad does!

Whether you have a motor home, truck camper, pickup truck or you haul heavy trailers with a pickup at work; the Trailer Toad is ready to "go to work and work with you" to make your trailer towing less of a load on your tow vehicle.

We know we have the most unique U.S. Patented trailer hitch on the market. We have the experience to help you eliminate problems caused by heavy trailers

This site  The Web 

The most common questions we get at Trailer Toad from motor home owners and commercial businesses:
"My motor home (or truck) is rated to be able to handle the tongue weight and gross weight of my trailer, why do I need a Trailer Toad?"
 
The short answer is: "In almost every case the Trailer Toad will prevent premature wear to the coach frame, rear cap structure and floor.
The static tongue weight and trailer weight is not the issue with diesel pushers or one ton trucks. The problem is the constant "pounding" on the hitch/frame/body as the rig goes down our "less than smooth" highways.
 
Here is an example- you are towing your trailer down a normal highway, you come to a bridge and we all know there is a small "ramp", it is called the approach, where the highway meets the bridge. For some reason they are NEVER the same level.
We did load tests on top of the trailer ball and we recorded "weight spikes" on the trailer ball in excess of 5,000 lbs on bridge approaches. Yes, it was for just an instant but it was like a giant sledge-hammer hitting the coach frame over and over again. THAT..is where the damage is coming from.
 

Have you "checked" your hitch lately???

This photo shows the result of the "constant pounding" the receiver hitches take on today's highways. This one "gave up" as they were pulling into an event. LUCKILY there was no damage (except the need for a new hitch!) but I would say blood pressures were a little high after seeing this.

"Eliminate the "impact and stress" on your coach", truck or pickup camper with the worls most unique trailer hitch, the Trailer Toad. The investment will not only let you travel with less stress.....your entire trip will be smoother."

 Motor home towing issues:

     The most common problem with towing with motor home is the overhang in the rear and they simply were not designed to carry the tongue weight of larger, heavier trailers.

     The Trailer Toad will carry that tongue weight with none of the trailer tongue weight being transferred to the motor home. All you will have to do is pull the trailer and of course, stop the trailer.

     The other benefits of using a Trailer Toad behind your motor home are these:

1. Protects the chassis from being over-stressed, 

2. Prevents overloading the rear suspension and tires,

3. Prevents stress damage to the floor and sidewalls,

4. It will prevent slide-outs from becoming out of alignment.
