Hensley's TrailerSaver BD3 removes easily and you can purchase a sliding base for it. We had the sliding base, but never used it.


What does the whole assembly weigh?


It comes apart for removal so the weight is manageable.

They all come apart , and are manageable. I know that , did it for about 9 years away from home when I needed the hitch out of the truck . Finally solved that problem with the Andersen, and have never looked back .

I used to run the Pullrite Superglide, which would leave my bed completely empty when removed...

That is, until I got a hernia removing it 1 year...

It does come in out pieces, but my its heavy at 275#.. I do not suggest at 70 you try to mess with that, UNLESS you keep it hitched to the trailer and remove the pins from the bed and raise it with the trailer..

Understood. Didn’t quite give a weight. Us Manly Men can handle it no doubt but there are some among us want to lift the hitch with one hand or have their grandchild do the removal.

And yet even after a hernia you have a Manly Man hitch.

my newly acquired "manly man" hitch is half the weight of that Pullrire ... This I can do as 1 piece... no more moving the 275# as 1.. and no grandchildren, yet,,, just 2 daughters

I'd like to think at 56 I still fall into that category ... but my body argues with me on a daily basis
