Couplings Off-Road

Al-ko, Cruisemaster and Ozhitch

Serious contenders for must-have off-road couplings and trailer hitches are Oz Hitch, Al-ko® and the DO35.

A lot of Australians own off-roader camper trailers because there’s no better place to enjoy nature like the vast outback.

Poly block couplings were all the rage to have installed on caravans and camper trailers. However, extreme offroad adventures evolved, where only the toughest of camper couplings survive.

Caravan low profile ball couplings and pin couplings by Al-ko®, CruiseMaster® and Ozhitch®

Why You Need Off-Road Couplings

Ideally, a perfect trailer or caravan coupling mechanism allows for both vertical and horizontal movement. Apart from freedom of movement, the coupling mechanism should also be able to deal with shocks and shear force which can easily dislodge the trailer from the towing vehicle.

Some Key Information About Off-Road Couplings

Importantly, caravan couplings are now low profile and as a result, are more functional. All offroad couplings have a similar towing capacity and braking systems.

Currently, the split-hair decision favours the Al-ko® 619400DX Pin Coupling followed by the Cruisemaster® DO35.

Standard 50mm tow ball offroad couplings and pin couplings have a quick hitch locking system. The low profile design of these couplings allows the opening of rear door type tailgates on your 4WD.

Couplemate recommends the use of high should two balls with off-road couplings.

Note, Couplemate manufacturers high shoulder tow balls at a genuine 3500kg rating. Look at the rating before purchasing.

Building an Australian coupling that withstands the rigours of rough dirt and corrugated roads of the outback is undoubtedly a tough mission.

Even the best of manufacturers listen to their customers, redesign where necessary, excelling in their search for excellence.

Lately, the new release Al-ko® override and electric ball coupling have been an outstanding success.

Further, we have investigated couplings all around the world and discovered the best couplings are all available only in Australia.

Couplemate® sells only the best quality off-road couplings and spares throughout Australia—covering the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, and Queensland.

Finally, we also ship these fantastic offroad couplings Internationally, via Australia Post Air to New Zealand.
