Hitches & Couplings


    • $621.30

    The HITCHMASTER® DO65 is shown here with optional Mounting Bracket and Pintle Ring (available separately) offers longer life and quiet operation for your trailer than the standard NATO ring coupling and pintle hook. The key to this ingenious design is to separate the ball movement from the coupling. Unlike the normal pintle hook arrangement there is no play between the two allowing for quiet operation, reduced wear and longer life especially when operating under arduous conditions. In addition the coupling does not bind up when reversing in tight situations.

    Previously known as the VC018, this coupling has a D-Value of 34.3kN (3.5T) and allows quiet operation in conjunction with a 75mm NATO ring. Please note: The DO65 Pintle Hook Adaptor Plate and the Pintle Ring are sold separately.

    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
