I agee with Jamie here, but my 1st thought as a musician looking at it was..... It's a boom stand! A microphone stand with a mirror stuck to it. Go to a music shop weld the stand to your trailer & clamp on a mirror.....

Why don't you just buy a big convext mirror like you see in the convieniece stores (so the clerk can see you down the isles) & bolt it on the top of your trailer. haha! Always thinkin'......

I forgot the name of them, but aren't there adjustable hitches where the ball section can swing a big to line up with the trailer and then once you connect it, you can lock the hitch in place?

who needs that? practice makes perfect!

I have guys working for me who have been in the business longer than I have and they always are amazed at my backing up (the trailer) skills. lol. then again, since i started doing this at 15, I learned from the get go on how to back up a trailer and hook it up the fastest, safest, and convenient way.



P.S. Last year I tried out a pintle hitch, man are those awesome. They trailer ALOT BETTER, dont sway as much, especially when turning and what not. All of my trailers from now on are going to be pintle. Not to mention they are even easier when backing up and hooking up.
