My hitch comes out in two pieces so it is easily handled by one person. But if I had a heavy hitch I would rig up a winch to suspend it from the ceiling in my garage.

Nearly 62 and I have no issue taking out or installing by hand my B&W RAM puck hitch. I do break it into two parts. Work smarter NOT harder!


Until last summer we had a 20K, Reese 4-Way Articulating which broke down into two pieces. At 65, it was not a problem. Last summer we bought a TrailerSaver TS3.....at approximately 290 pounds, it exceeded the “load capacity” of my back fusion! [emoticon]. To remove the hitch from the truck (leaving on the 5er is not practical for us).....the tractor was necessary!


Understood!

More than one way to skin this cat, and most have been mentioned.

I leave my hitch in the bed and cover it with my roll up tonnue cover. Fits under the cover snug as a rug and can't tell its there. When I do have to remove my Reese 15k slider I break it down into two 60 pound pieces and take it out. I put it on the garage floor next to my boat. But I do have a folding leaf table in the shed I can slide it onto if needed. back the truck up to the table, drop teh tailgate and slide it off onto the table.

I leave mine hanging on, but I have made a support trestle which I put under the hitch to take the weight. Maybe not needed but it makes me feel better.
