The trailer ride improved considerably but the ride in the tow vehicle was intolerable with the back and forth jerking . In examining the construction of the hitch and the design I soon realized the jerking in the tow vehicle was a direct result of the design of the hitch. We set about to redesign the hitch but soon realized there was no redesigning it so we started from scratch and designed a completely different style of hitch. We named it “The Trailer Saver.” It used air springs for the suspension and with the MDTs it worked great. However, for the 2500 and 3500 trucks that design was not the best. In 2003 I sold the company and had no involvement in the hitch industry for 8 years. Then I discovered a new product called “closed cell urethane”. This product was designed as an overload device for vehicles with a constant load, like a snow plow. Long story short I started experimenting with this new device and now some 6 years later and several designs later we have the latest generation of an “air cell” energy absorbing hitch called the “Badger Hitch” which works great on all vehicles.
