Animals riding in trailers has always been a dangerous situation. The horse has to stand spread almost spread eagle in the trailer when in motion to keep from falling. The bounce and jerk of the trailer also places undue stress on the horses leg muscles and joints, making the horse stressed out, tired, and jumpy by the time the trailer stops... especially on long rides. The drive always seems to take a little longer, too, because the driver has to stop and let the horses rest every four to six hours.
Advanced Air Hitch, Inc. has helped prevent this problem by introducing the first improvement in towing technology in over 50 years. The Air Ride Trailer Hitch integrates Air Ride Technology into the hitching process allowing both the tow-vehicle and the trailer to act as separate entities, thereby reducing tire bounce, vibration and sway when towing.
Every horse owner knows this problem exists. Our hitch reduces the tire bounce of the trailer so drastically, that the trailer and its contents are under less stress, thereby eliminating damage to the trailer, the tow vehicle and most especially the horses.
The Air Ride Trailer Hitch is constructed with jig-welded steel, and Heavy Duty Airbags and Space Age Composites for a smooth safe ride.
These Air Ride Trailer hitches separate the trailer and tow-vehicle making them ride as independent vehicles. This in turn gives the trailer the ability to move on its natural axis, making it safer to pull. This technology has been proven to put less stress on the trailer, which reduces the amount of wear and tear on the trailer, the tow-vehicle and the horses.
"This is the best product to come on the market in years! The benefits to horses and other livestock are too numerous to name. I highly recommend this product for all my patients to reduce the stress of traveling on joints and bones.
The Air Ride system is available for almost any type of towing situation. The Air Ride product line includes hitches for receiver standard ball hitch, Pintle hitch or weight distribution hitch in the "Class 4 " weight class.
