Hitch Ball Mount storage on trailer frame

thought i would share this. purchased a 2"sq insert and had shop weld it to 4" sq steel stock. cut one side so could slide it on trailer frame. too wide so glued 1/2" rubber (scrap conveyor belt material) to the 2 side and top. fits nice and snug. i do remove when traveling. also can run cable thru hitch receiver for security. pictures

That's kind'a neat and a good idea.

I actually just welded the receiver extension to the bottom of my A-Frame. Keeps the hitch out of the way of the batteries and propane cylinders. It also allows me to leave the hitch at the storage facility without putting it in the storage area since I can lock it in.

I keep mine locked in the trailer tongue and spin it around so no one knocks into it. I like this idea too, not sure I have room up there though.

I thought it would be good to leave the ball locked into the TT ball receiver, that way anyone with a 2 inch hitch tube could steal it. Always looking for and upgrade.
