Looking for a hitch!

    I am looking for a special hitch for my truck and trialers. I would like one that the ball hitch can extend out and meet up with the trailer. I can back up close to the trailer and move the tongue out by hand and match it up to the trailer. Does anyone know where I can get one?

    I bought something like this from Schuck Hitches but it will not fit on my dump truck. I have to extend my receiver to 8", which is not safe to do.
    Thanks, Mike

    You can get a extension to go into your receiver to get your 8". My receiver is extened about 6" to get out from under my dump body but it also has two 1/4" steel "wings" welded to it for support.
