If it wasn't bright orange you might misplace it in your kitchen junk drawer

The original Hensley Arrow trailer hitch is orange. They are probably continuing the tradition.

Obviously with the weather up north they wanted to make sure you could find it if you dropped in in the snow during install. And they didn't even charge extra for that extra safty feature.

Moving from a 8.5 foot non slide camper to a 26 foot 3 slide FW, there will be more than one place to stash some junk.

Interesting. I got mine about 6 months ago and it was shipped black. I'm really glad. Although it is covered when not in use. I think you will like it. Safe travels.

The BD3 and TS3 are black. The BD1 is orange. Why I have no idea. I have the BD3 and have been very pleased with it.
