Expert Answers about A-Frame Trailer Coupler

  • Installation Information for Redline A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA5100B
  • When installing a trailer coupler like the Etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler, part # CA5100B, you want the coupler right up against the edge of the trailer frame. This coupler is a weld-on coupler for A-frame trailers. I would recommend having a qualified welder or trailer professional install the coupler. I have linked an FAQ on trailer couplers and all of the A-Frame trailer couplers we have available.

  • Are There Replacement Parts for the A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Round Jack Hole CA-5280-RB
  • I do have weld-on, a-frame trailer couplers in which replacement parts are available but the A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Round Jack Hole part # CA-5280-RB is not one of them. The Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler part # 12660-97SP and Bulldog Heavy-Duty Cast Head Coupler part # BD44150W0317 both have replacement coupler repair kits, the Demco Composite eZ-Latch Repair Kit part # DM6008 and the Repair Kit Fulton Wedge-Latch Cast Head Coupler part # F670801. I recommend the Demco 50-Degree...

  • Can a Weld-On A-Frame Trailer Coupler be Bolted On Instead of Welded
  • The A-frame couplers we carry, like # 12660-97SP, are weld-on applications and cannot be bolted on to a trailer frame. Any welding should be done by a qualified welder in a shop that works on trailers. The coupler you have reference accepts a 2-5/16 inch diameter ball. I have included a link to all of the A-frame coupler options for you to view.

  • Replacement for Shelby 5107 A-Frame Trailer Coupler
  • Based on my research the Shelby 5107 coupler looks to be an A-frame coupler that accepts a 2" ball, though I was unable to find the weight capacity as this seems to be an older coupler. For a replacement coupler there are a couple different options, depending on the weight capacity you require. These are bolt-on A-frame couplers that accept a 2" ball: - 5,000 lbs: A-Frame Coupler with Black Paint Finish # CA5100B - 7,000 lbs: Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Flip Latch # CA-5196-B

  • Is Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5196-B Designed for Weld On 50 Degree A-Frames
  • Yes, the Sleeve-Lock A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5196-B that you referenced is a weld-on coupler designed to fit 50 degree A-frame trailers like you mentioned. Nearly all A-frame trailers are 50 degree so it's hard to find A-frame couplers that are designed for a different angle.

  • Replacement A-Frame Trailer Coupler For 1978 Airstream With 50 Degree A-Frame
  • It would appear that that your 1978 Airstream had the standard 50 degree a-frame style coupler. You can verify this to ensure that the etrailer A-Frame Trailer Coupler # CA-5280-RB will fit correctly on your Airstream. I personally prefer the auto latching style couplers like the Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler # 12660-97SP. This coupler for me is cleaner and works simpler with the latching system. The connection for the jack has nuts welded on to the bottom of the plate making...

  • Recommended 2-5/16 Coupler To Replace 2 Coupler On 2019 Winnebago Minnie 170K Travel Trailer
  • I found a few pictures of the coupler on your 2019 Winnebago Minnie 170k Travel Trailer and you currently have an A-frame coupler. The most likely replacement option is the Demco 50-Degree A-Frame Trailer Coupler w/ Jack Hole # DM13205-95 which is for trailer frames that have the standard 50 degree frame and requires a 2-5/16" hitch ball. The 50 degree A-Frame is the standard but it wouldn't hurt to confirm that the 50-Degree A-Frame is in fact what your trailer uses. The Demco # DM13205-95...

  • A-Frame Coupler That Accepts 2 Inch Hitch Ball
  • Thanks for the photos, and I can confirm that you do have an A-frame style of coupler. We do not have a latch repair kit by that manufacturer for an A-frame coupler for a 2 inch hitch ball, so the best we can offer is a new A-frame coupler. There are both bolt-on and weld-on options available. - Bolt-On: Demco A-Frame Trailer Coupler with Jack Hole - eZ-Latch # DM14793-81 - Weld-On: A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Yoke Latch # CA-5210-B I have added links below to some video reviews to check...

  • Wide A-Frame Coupler Recommendation for a Trailer
  • I did some checking and the a-frame coupler with the most distance at the widest point is the Bulldog Collar-Lok coupler part # BD028384. This coupler has a 11 inches at the widest point. Is there a reason you need one that wide? All that really matters is the angle of the coupler as it matches your frame. Nearly all A-frame trailer have a 50 degree angle where the coupler installs. The # BD028463 would install on a 50 degree angled A-frame trailer.

  • So long as your Airstream trailer has an A-frame, then yes, you can use the A-Frame Trailer Coupler - Underslung # CA-5335-B. There is no way for us to know what couplers fit any specific trailer, but so long as you have an A-frame then there won't be an issue with this one.
