I was just looking for some feed back on this hitch from folks that have hed experiance with it. Not a lot of "I thinks" from people guessing please. I am currently towing a 2006 40' Travel Supreme & would like to know if this hitch is really the best thing going for towing heavy. Thanks. LP

One more question, do you use a teflon disc or grease your fifth wheel? Thanks

Thanks, had a fellow tell me he greased his because the tolerances were to tight to use the disc & that almost was enough to turn me away from one. LP

The TS3 TrailerSaver hitch is one of the best around for towing heavy fivers. I have the 32K LP model. If I were to buy another hitch today it would be another TrailerSaver hitch. The Binkley head that TrailerSaver uses is a heavy duty hitch head. The people at TrailerSaver are also good people to deal with.
I use a Teflon plate with no problems.

LEPage as posted in the past.Trailer Saver hitch is top quality product w/low maintenance. Two years and very satisfied. The Holland Head is a miniture of the big rig saddle.When you hitch per instruction you are locked on period no mistake. I laugh at some of the testimonials in propaganda ads of air ride hitches. "It rides so smooth we forget its back their". If you are pulling 10,000 lbs plus X 60 mile per hour = anyone has a memory lapse saddle up choice of hitch is no longer a problem. Keep the dust on ya boot

Well now that I have several thousand miles on my TS-3 I too am a beleiver. Only wish I'd have gotten one years ago when I first looked at them, & the price was better, also.

I have been using my Trailer Saver hitch for over a year and 15000 miles and it is a great piece of equipment

When we started towing the 25' Terry with the HDT we found it was riding very rough, things getting tossed around inside. The Trailer Saver took care of that issue and we are very happy with it. Easy to hook-up and disconnect.

I use a teflon disc, but in their literature it says some trailer pins may not allow the use of the teflon disc as it causes the pin to ride too high to seat properly in the hitch..

Have not towed the Newmar yet (pick it up week after next) but I expect it will be smooth going with the Trailer Saver.

I had to sand my teflon disc down a little (.125") to get smooth hook up using the trailer saver hitch. It was very easy to do using a hand held belt sander. I have spoke to several people that had to do this and several that did not. I guess that the tolerances are close so minor differences in the min/max allowable will create this condition. The operation of the hitch is excellent and I am glad I went with it.

Trailer Saver have their own Teflon disc available, it's actually square and not as thick as the others.

I have an easy-rider hitch. The air rides are fairly expensive but worth it. Takes out the bucking of bridges and overpasses.
