    I am going to purchasing a new trailer and want to know which coupler you guys think is better. The main thing is I want to be able to put a padlock on it to lock it to the truck. Can either one of these brand couplers be locked? And is either one better than the other?

    Dealer said a bulldog coupler is probably the way to go, but I want to get some opinions from guys who actually have had experience with them. I personally have never seen one up close or paid much attention to them at the time I did see them.
