  1. I have a 2016 Automated Safety Hitch for sale. It served me well, but I'm no longer traveling, and am moving to another country, so I need to sell it. It was $13 new with the extra winch for towing RVs out of stuck places. It's got some superficial rust from being near the ocean, but is in good shape, with only 8000 mi on it. I'm prepared to sell it very reasonably. Make an offer. It's in Northern California, but even with shipping, if you can't pick it up, it should be a good deal. please email me directly at aurora at historica dot us.
  2. I have one for sale. Are you still looking? if so, email me at aurora at historica dot us.
  3. Yes, it's still available. The best way to reach me is via email. aurora@historica.us
  4. Just learning to use it, and help getting out of the bad mud patch.
  5. I'm selling my Automated Safety Hitch because I'm settling in one place and won't need it anymore. I bought it in 2016, used it to zig zag coast to coast and then needed to strop traveling, so it only has 8,000 miles or so on it. It has some superficial rust because I live near the ocean, but is otherwise in fine shape. I loved using it. It left my truck bed free for storage, and as a new RVer liked the extra brakes and maneuverability. Also , Joe, the manufacturer, provided excellent support, answering calls from remote locations. I got it with the winch option, which allowed me to pull my RV out of a couple of muddy spots it got stuck in. I'm in Northern California and happy to help figure out how to get it elsewhere. Trying to sell it soon, as I'm moving to the Caribbean. I paid around $12K new and will sell for best offer.

  7. I've put down roots in Northern California and am not currently on the road, so I'm selling both my truck and the Automated Safety Hitch. Together, they towed my 32 foot 5th wheel 10,000 miles in four months, and got me across several mountain ranges. If you don't know about the safety hitch, you can read about it here: http://www.automatedsafetyhitch.com/ I haven't used a conventional hitch, so I have nothing to compare it with, but I know that as a new driver, the extra set of brakes gave me more confidence going down hills with all that weight behind me, and I had really good maneuverability. It also has a feature that lets you use the hitch winch to tow your RV out of mud, which was invaluable to me more than once, when I would otherwise have had to pay a tow service and wait for hours. The company provides great support and the owner/inventor was always available by phone to troubleshoot or answer questions. It was useful to have the bed of my truck available for loads when not towing. Although people unfamiliar with it were skeptical, my experience with it was very good. Once you get the hang of it, you can hitch and unhitch very quickly, with the hitch motor doing most of the work. The truck is a black, crew cab, 2014 Sierra Denali 2500HD Diesel pickup, with around 87,000 miles on it and a white LEER cap for the bed. The safety hitch requires a modified receiver and the truck has one permanently installed, (not the usual way it's attached) which is why I'm selling them together. Removing it would involve cutting it off so I'm hoping to find a buyer who wants the whole package. It has a new fuel pump and injectors, and various finicky electronic sensors have been replaced. Some of these trucks have a problem with power steering fluid, and that's been fixed on this one. The 2014 diesel Denali sells for around $43,000 and I paid $12,000 for the hitch, including the towing out of the mud feature, for a total of $56k. I'm asking $42k for the truck to allow for the cost of removing the receiver in the future, if necessary, and $8k for the hitch for a total of $50k.

  8. Hi folks-- I am a new member, in the process of building a custom 5th wheel to meet my needs as a disabled person with serious chemical sensitivities. I've had the shell of my trailer manufactured in Illinois and it's about to be shipped to Boston where I live, so that my construction crew can build the custom interior. BUT...I can't find a site to park it on while they do the work. I'm new to Boston, which makes it harder. Ideally, I need a small part of a warehouse, a large garage or a similar space, but at this point I'd be happy with a more or less secure parking lot or other open air option. I can pay rent and I'm even offering a reward. (www.littlevehicleforchange.org) The site needs to be within 30 minutes or so of either Arlington or Somerville, MA, where my builders live. I'll need it for 3-4 months, and ideally there would be a power outlet so I don't have to rent a generator. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Aurora
