Stabilizer Bar Kit is now standard on all new Trailer Toads.

It is an upgrade to the entire Trailer Toad package we feel adds another layer of protection for your equipment and additional stability. 

This is the new attachment system, much stronger.

**Stabilizer Bar Kits now come with every new Trailer Toad 3500SD and 5000SD.
1. Eliminate the "slop" between the draw bar and the receiver tube.
2. Takes the stress off receiver tube opening when backing up, this prevents "stretching out the receiver tube opening".
These are common problems and we have a great way to fix it.
 The reason we have decided to include front Stabilizer Bars is because there is a tremendous side load on the drawbar and receiver tube when backing up and turning tight corners. The Stabilizer Bars help spread that load out and can prevent bending or breaking the draw bar or splitting the receiver tube.
We are offering a "Stabilizer Bar" kit to help reduce the "looseness" and "wandering" of the front of the trailer when the draw bar is loose in the receiver hitch tube.
"Do you have this problem?
Here is a quick way to find out:
 
Unhook the trailer and pull ahead a foot or so. Grab the back of the Trailer Toad (it took me and my son) and see if you can slide it sideways. If it moves more than an inch, it means your draw bar is not a tight fit in the hitch receiver tube. I would consider the "stabilizer bar kit" if you have an older Toad.
 
If you want some help deciding on how to get your Trailer Toad equipped with Stabilizer Bars just call or email me and we can work it out.
We have Stabilizer Bar kits available right now. All we need is a measurement from the mounting hole on your Trailer Toad 3500HD to the main tube on your tow vehicle hitch.
 
It seems that every coach or hitch is a bit different and mounting the Stabilizer Bar brackets can be a challenge. I just installed a new set on my motor home.
The pictures below show that we had to do a little "backyard fabrication" and I wanted to keep the "Ultra-Guard" rock deflector so we drilled a 3" hole in it for the stabilizer bars to pass through.

A little measuring and patience will help.
We had to add some tubing to keep bars level

It took about an hour, but it is very strong.

In the picture above you can see a couple important things: The stabilizer bars should be kept as level as possible and to accomplish this you might have to do some simple fabrication. We simply took a couple pieces of 2x2 square steel tubing and stacked them to accomplish getting the stabilizer bars level. Some simple welding and we have a very durable stabilizer bar mount.

 

This is the new Stabilizer Bar Kit.
