    burley trailer hitches

    I have a burley trailer that I pull my kid with on the weekends. I want to get another one of the standard forged hitches but was hoping not to have to shell out ~$25.

    Anyone have an alternative? Ever see a hitch like this at your local hardware store?

    Maybe you could take the hitch, along with a 6 pack to a local shop that does fabrication work and ask them to make one up?

    I use a converted kiddie trailer for a grocery getter. The standard hitch kept rotating around the axle under heavy loads. I built a heavy duty hitch by welding a cut off bolt from Home Depot to a piece of 1 1/2 inch angle iron, and attaching it to the frame with stainless U bolts. It is indestructible. See my post on my trailer on this forum for pictures.

    I am currently rebuilding my trailer and have switched to a Hime (captive ball) joint for a trailer hitch. I will post pictures of that soon.
