The couplers (3) are of excellent quality. Ordering was very simple by telephone. All questions were answered. Shipping was immediate and the product arrived in an unmolested box which surprised me due to the weight. I expected the box to be dented and the corners smashed. Tracking of shipments was important to me. Couplers will be installed on a rather unique vehicle. Each of the three cars of this miniture train will receive the new couplers.

Bull dog has been a great hitch. One time I pulled a load upwith a five ton comealong.while winching I noticed the trailer touched the ground needless to say the truck was in the air.the tounge is rated for seven thousand, the load weighted eight thousand six hundred pounds plus the trailer. What a hitch. The only draw back I wish the insert for weldingis a little short for my preference. Wish was about three inches longer. Thanks



by:

Just what I needed and couldn’t find at local stores. Great price.

Great Product, Fast SERVICE!

Five star service from etrailer, and maybe a two or three-star product from Bulldog. Aside from the rust and the fact that the collar is so stiff that it can't be operated by hand, the fabrication on the steel attachment plate is poor. The holes for the tongue jack are punched out, twice in some cases, resulting in an enlarged hole, but there are no threads for the tongue jack so you'll have to fumble around and use nuts underneath. The vertical angles on the steel are wrong, so it will splay out at the bottom and won't fit tightly to the A-frame and you will need to shim it out. The interior of the casting is full of weld spatter that will chafe the tow ball. I bought the less-expensive Ram sleeve-lock coupler under a Curt label and the fabrication is much better, having none of the problems the BullDog did. etrailer kindly sent me an RMA to return the BullDog.

This is how I received my merchandise I was lucky the part was still
In side the box

The best coupler we have used for our construction business. I have been using these for 14 years now without any problems. We replace them every 5 years at about 160,000 miles when we purchase new trailers. I currently need three now but they have been out of stock for several months. Still waiting for new stock to arrive so I can order. I feel safe with this type coupler and my employees also like the security it provides.



by:

Don’t buy this!!! It literally does not work. You can’t open the coupling because it was built incorrectly. There isn’t enough room to slide the coupling back. Of course I didn’t realize this until I had mounted it on my trailer. etrailer customer service is about to get an earful!



by:

Receiver worked perfect with 3” square tube



by:

Heavy duty, clean - no bulk to deal with and can step on the tongue easily to climb up, etc. Perfect for up to 7K# trailer. When it is latched, it is latched and in the truck and away you go! Great Bulldog product.



by:

This coupler was not only a replacement part but an upgrade over the OEM coupler on this trailer!



by:

The Bulldog coupler is SO MUCH easier to hitch up and disengage than my previous coupler which required several back and forth movements of my tow vehicle to engage/disengage the hitch ball.



by:

Really fast shipping, install only took 15 min, and much more solid than the original coupler on the trailer that used two long bolts (which wore and caused the holes to get oblong making the connection to the trailer sloppy), as compared to the four bolts provided with the new coupler.



by:

Just a safer product than most other drop on hitches.
This one is great!



by:

Great site. This is the second time that I have purchased items from etrailer. Your web page is easy to use and I like the product videos. The trailer couplerI bought was very good and fit properly.



by:

Works great. Welded it on and was ready to go. Have ordered from etrailer before, and just like every time before my parts arrived very promptly and have never had any complaints with service. Will definitely be using etrailer again.



by:

IT WAS NOT WHAT I WANTED. HOWEVER, I WAS NOT GOING TO WAIT TILL JULY. I KNOW IT WAS NOT YOUR FAULT. AFTER LOOKING AT THIS ONE IT WILL BE FINE. THANKS.



by:

I have a 2003 Jeep Liberty CRD. The spare tyre of the Liberty means the standard tow hitch is on a long bar to clear the spare tyre. I wanted a low profile coupling so I could bring the hitch point in closer to the rear axle to improve the towing characteristics with a 5000 lb trailer. One photo shows my old set-up and the other with the Bulldog. This coupling was ideal.



by:

I bought this old really cheap to rebuild. One of the parts that had to be replaced was the hitch, I towed it home with my fingers crossed. I googled trailer hitch, trailer and etrailer was one of the sites that was suggested. I had to find a hitch that fit the 3 1/2" pipe that was the tongue, voila there it was to my amazement. I ordered it right then, 4 days later it was delivered yesterday. Today I mounted it, it was an easy installation and I am really pleased with the hitch and install. My fears of losing a trailer are now history, tomorrow it gets tested with 1 1/2 yards of gravel for the slab for my new. shop



by:

LOVE this Bulldog hitch! I welded it to my new custom built motorcycle trailer and I will never go back to the other kind again. So much easier to get a positive connection. I also like the integrated lock hole in the latch. It's definitely worth the money.



by:

This is a nice, strong, coupler. I highly recommend.



by:

Exactly what I needed! etrailer seems to have just what I need in times of need and they were able to get this item to me the next day as I requested. Very trustworthy and very knowledgeable staff. Thank you!



by:

I changed out the conventional ball hitch on a dump trailer to a bulldog style hitch. There were issues ensuring the original hitch was on the ball correctly. The Bulldog hitch will eliminate that potential problem. Installation was easy. Took about 10 minutes to get the old hitch off and the new one on. The only improvement that I would suggest is to have the lever to retract the collar as the lighter Bulldog hitches do. This one simply has a sliding collar that must be forced back by hand. I always use my foot on the hitches with the lever. But this is a Bulldog issue and not an etrailer issue. etrailer service was outstanding.

Fast delivery

Excellent service, Carol even followed up to make sure all was good.

  • Does Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler Have Recommended Mounting Depth
    The Bulldog Collar-Lok Coupler w/ High-Profile Latch - 2" Ball - Round Tongue - 5,000 lbs # BD028381 doesn't actually have a recommended mounting depth. The reason for that is this is a weld-on application so it simply needs to be mounted in a way that will allow a proper weld.
