GenY Glyder Hitch


Recommended Posts

This is the torsion hitch I will use to tow the Ollie I.

GenY has a great reputation in the industry for producing excellent products.


I have been using this hitch with my 14’ enclosed trailer I use to tow our street motorcycles and camping gear. It really does smooth out the ride. I can’t wait to see how it works with the “shorty”. 

Here is a link to the product website.

Is anyone else using this hitch? If so what has been your experience?  I've loved it so far. I’ve attached a couple of pics of my hitch below.

Carl - 

Interesting idea.  One of the things I've always liked about the Andersen is its ability to reduce "bouncing or porpoising" between the tow vehicle and the Ollie.  Please let us know how this hitch works with your Ollie.

That is pretty cool. Thanks for posting! The Australians have been using what they call “poly block” hitches for off pavement towing, for decades. I had a Treg model and it was terrific. I am glad US manufacturers are starting to use this concept. Did you buy the warranty? I found this picture on that page.

It does appear that, like a rubber torsion axle, you can expect it deteriorate over time. Does it start to get noisy? Rubber axle bushings can be destroyed by exposure to water and grit. Are these rudder tubes exposed in the front of the tube? Please keep us updated on how this works out.
