    The DO45 is the big brother of the DO35. Caravans up to 4.5 tonnes can have the benefit of a heavy-duty off-road WDH compatible hitch. This coupling also incorporates a double automatic locking mechanism, massive articulation in all directions simultaneously and the patented self-aligning pin.

    In addition the DO45 has some new features. These include a safety dust cover which ensures that when fitted the coupling is correctly locked and ready to go. As well as this a front cushion is fitted to reduce any damage to the tow vehicle should the coupling process be taken a bit ambitiously. The drop-on facility come into its own when trying to couple up on uneven and soft surfaces where trying to level up the tow vehicle and caravan or camper trailer can be extremely difficult.

    Like all VC products the HITCHMASTER® range is designed and tested to perform under Australian Conditions. Each year, Vehicle Components vigorously remote area test new coupling designs and features with highly sophisticated Motec Data logging technology such as temperature sensors, G-force sensors, height sensors & comprehensive GPS tracking software.

    "This van has circumnavigated Oz numerous times. l'm the second owner and l thought l should have the suspension checked out by the professionals at Vehicle Components. The guys performed minimum upgrades due to a great suspension fitted originally by them. l can't speak more highly of Kierran and his team, they kept me informed all the way through the work l would recommend him his team and Vehicle Components to any other caravan, camper or just a trailer owner that requires suspension work done on their pride and joy." - Glenn Watson

    "Hi VC, Just wanted to let you know about the DO35 V2 I’ve fitted to my camper trailer. This was an upgrade from the standard ball hitch. A friend of mine has the DO35 on his Lifestyle trailer and it was what convinced me to go for the new v2. We took our trailers to Cape York this year (we’ve been home a week!), they even got to be tested out on the Old Telegraph Track, being taken down the famous Gunshot and through Cockatoo creek. Both hitches performed flawlessly, with neither trailer ever getting into problems. The new DO35v2 has been getting plenty of people looking at it too, most if not all impressed with the new modifications you’ve made to it. As promised it is very easy to connect up to the trailer with this hitch, its certainly far easier than the old ball hitch! (Don’t think I’d ever go back to that!) Sometimes the cover over the hitch is a little fussy to lock down but at least you know that the hitch is on properly and that the cover is also! Anyway, just wanted to know about how happy I’ve been with the DO35v2. You’ve really nailed it! Now, I’m looking at how I can upgrade the trailer suspension! The Cruisemaster system is on the wish list!"- Tamsyne
    "Just before the trip we also had fitted a (Hitchmaster) DO 35 hitch - my wife and I are both sold on this hitch as significantly more user friendly than others we have used in the past" - Alan Grant
