Where is the link for the video?
Who is the maker of it?
Where do you buy it?
What does it cost?

You may get more feed back, with a little more information on it.

Electric TowHitch

Checked net, found FMCA vender with vidio on YouTube. Co is Electric Toehitch. I think it is for hitching a TT to car/truck. Don't think you would use for a toad.

I think you found it.

With it you would need to know your rear GAWR and how much tong weight is going on the hitch. And what the hitch is rated for.

There are some with only 500 lb and others at 1,000 lb.
And you don't want to go over the MH rear GAWR.

It also leaves very little clearance below the tires for dips etc. Speed bumps in the road may be a problem also.

I will just keep pulling mine 4 down.

Electric tow hitch

You need to search electric tow hitch car applaction on You Tube and you can watch it. Weight on hitch is something to think about.

Electric tow hitch

Don't think I like it. toad front end hanging and would hit everything. Plus the hitch weight I think woud be the toad front axle weight.

Some high school physics ... recall what you learned about levers ...

The pivot under this system is the rear wheels of the toad.

The center of the mass of the toad is probably about 2/3 of the distance from the rear wheels to the MH ... so the tongue weight of this hitch is about 2/3 the total weight of the toad ...
