Piece of junk

I can say that the part is as good as pictured and worked well. What my review is going to be about is the customer service. I got a email with a confirmation of the employee who picked my part, packed my parts and shipped my parts. This was constant communication about the service and with a profile picture puts a name wit a face. I feel that this goes above and beyond the expectations of any customer on a internet order. I tell all my friends and anyone who will listen this is what a good company does to guarentee success of their business and promote return customers. Job well done and thanks for countering all the bad internet orders with a great one.

  • Replacement for Shelby 5101 Coupler
    Based on my research the Shelby 5101 is an A-frame coupler with a 2" ball and 5,000 lb capacity. We have exactly that with the A-Frame Coupler # CA5100B, which has a trigger latch and has a black paint finish. The same coupler is available with a simple zinc finish, part # CA-5100-Z. I've added links to video reviews of both couplers for you to take a look at.

  • Best Replacement for Shelby 5101 A-Frame Coupler
    There are no repair kits for Shelby couplers because the company was acquired some time ago; your best option at this point would be to get a new coupler. The Shelby 5101 is an A-frame coupler with a 2" ball and 5,000 lb capacity. We have exactly that with the A-Frame Coupler # CA5100B, which has a trigger latch and has a black paint finish. The same coupler is available with a simple zinc finish, part # CA-5100-Z.

  • Replacement Coupler For A Shelby 5101 A-Frame Coupler
    There are no repair kits available for your Shelby 5101 a-frame coupler because Shelby was discontinued. Your best option would be to get a new coupler. The A-Frame Coupler # CA5100B has a quick, easy and secure trigger-style latch and has a durable steel construction with a black paint finish with a weight capacity of 5,000 pounds, or # CA-5100-Z has the same features but it has a zinc finish. I attached a review video link below.

  • Correct Replacement for Shelby 5101 A-Frame Trailer Coupler
    We do offer a direct replacement for the Shelby 5101 A-Frame Trailer Coupler, it's the A-Frame Coupler part # CA5100B for black or part # CA-5100-Z for zinc. These couplers both have a 5,000 lb weight capacity with 2" hitch ball. In order to install either option you'll need to cut the old one off and weld the new one onto the trailer. Please note, the zinc is a better option for boat trailers due to its rust resistance.

  • Angle of the A-Frame Trailer Coupler CA-5100-Z
    Nearly all A-frame trailer have a 50 degree angle frame so when it comes time to replace the coupler it's actually not that hard to pick out a replacement since basically any A-frame coupler will fit. The coupler part # CA-5100-Z that you referenced is also 50 degrees.

  • Replacement Coupler for Trailer to Replace Shelby 5101
    Shelby has been out of business for quite sometime so the best option you'll find is replacing the coupler with a new one. For tha that we have the A-Frame Coupler part # CA-5100-Z which is very similar to the Shelby and would work well. It has a 5k capacity, a trigger latch and fits a 2 inch ball.

  • Could A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5100-Z be Bolted On
    There really is no reason you couldn't bolt on the coupler part # CA-5100-Z but there isn't a recommended way to do so. Best option would be to drill several holes spaced evenly on the a-frame portion of the coupler to the trailer frame. You'd want to use Grade 5 or higher hardware too.

  • Replacement Trailer Coupler Repair Kits for 2-Inch Couplers
    Coupler Repair Kit # CA-5100-RK includes all parts needed to rebuild an etrailer brand or Ram brand 5K-rated 2-inch ball coupler with a trigger latch. It consists of all components other than the housing. If you have one of these models - # CA5100B, # CA-5100-Z or CA-5100-BLB - then this is the correct rebuild kit. If you have another brand or model of coupler on your trailer you can refer to the linked page that displays all such kits for many brands of coupler. The Big Tex website...

  • What is the Metal Thickness of etrailer CA-5100-Z Weld-On 2-Inch A-Frame Trailer Coupler
    The etrailer brand # CA-5100-Z is manufactured in China. It's constructed of 1/8 inch thick stamped zinc plated steel, which works out to be 11 gauge. For a US made 2 inch weld-on A-Frame coupler of the same thickness, I'd recommend the Dutton-Lainson # DL14008 which is constructed of 11 gauge stamped steel that features tough enamel finish. The coupler has a 5000 lb capacity, like the # CA-5100-Z coupler you'd looked at.

  • Troubleshooting Coupler Difficulties With A 2015 Jayco Jay Flight 26BHS Travel Trailer
    The Repair Kit for etrailer and Ram A-Frame Couplers # CA-5100-RK only fits the following couplers # CA5100B, CA-5100-BLB, and # CA-5100-Z, so it would not solve your connection difficulty, unless you had one of these specific couplers. Aside from lubing the hitch ball the only other solution would be to replace your coupler with an easier coupling design like the Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole - eZ-Latch # DM14793-97 or the weld-on version # DM14791-97. The eZ-Latch coupler...

  • Does 5000 lb Trailer Coupler Have to be Replaced with Coupler with Same Capacity
    Depends on the weight of the trailer. If the trailer will never weigh more than 5,000 lbs then you wouldn't necessarily have to go with a 5k rated coupler like the Demco part # DM14793-52 that you referenced. 5,000 lb couplers are very popular, so if you were just wanting something priced a little better the part # CA-5100-Z would work great too.

  • Replacement Jack for 1997 Starcraft Meteor 814 Classic
    We don't offer a replacement jack that would be compatible with the bracketry you show in your photo, but we do offer an option that would work for you. Folks use side-mount jacks on A-frame trailers all the time, but as you found they're not very stable because of the tilting force placed on them because the load is off-center. I'd recommend replacing your existing coupler with part # CA-5100-Z which would provide a strong and secure mounting location for the jack. The coupler is a weld-on...
