What is the best way to get rid of the slop in the receiver to hitch connection?

Camping World sells an item that will corect the problem with hitch slop, sells for less than $30.00. I use them and they work great.

I've seen many people highly recommend the following product:

HitchRider HitchVise

I do not have one but plan on ordering it as soon as the 2 1/2" version is back in stock.
