This hitch combines with a Lock 'N' Roll trailer-end coupler (sold separately) to create a safe, secure, fully articulating connection that's great for towing whether you're on the road or off-road. It's more secure than a traditional ball hitch, and it's more comfortable and quieter than a pintle setup. The Lock 'N' Roll connects quickly and easily, and can adapt to any towing conditions.


Strong, Safe Connection

When using a traditional ball coupler, it can be hard to tell if the coupler is fully latched around the ball. You can head out assuming the connection is secure, only to have the trailer pop off of the ball and disconnect while you're towing. With the Lock 'N' Roll, that won't happen.


Lock N Roll Connected

This unique hitch is designed to interlock with a matching trailer-side coupler to form a tight, secure connection. Unlike on a ball coupler, the latching components on the Lock 'N' Roll system are easy to see, so you can tell at a glance if the connection is secure.


Once secure, the Lock 'N' Roll setup offers a wide range of motion, which makes for a smooth ride. Because of the articulating action of the combined hitch and coupler, the Lock 'N' Roll connection can handle the harsh bumps and road shock that could otherwise stress and potentially damage a ball coupler.


The Lock 'N' Roll connection also makes your trailer less vulnerable to theft. Unlike a traditional ball coupler, which is compatible with any hitch ball of a matching size, the trailer-side Lock 'N' Roll coupler can only connect to a vehicle-side Lock 'N' Roll hitch. So your trailer cannot be towed away unless it's connected to a vehicle with a Lock 'N' Roll hitch installed.


With the Lock 'N' Roll, you can have peace of mind knowing your connection will not come apart or succumb to damage caused by road shock, nor will your trailer be vulnerable to theft.


Comfortable Off-Road Towing

The pintle hitch connection is the most common setup when towing off road because of the flexibility in the connection. But that flexible connection can also result in a lot of slop. This can cause uncomfortable jerking as well as rattle and noise. In addition, when using a pintle/lunette ring setup, it can be difficult to back up your vehicle and trailer without jackknifing. And it can be hard to disconnect at certain angles, which may be a necessity when overlanding.


The Lock 'N' Roll assembly, on the other hand, offers a close-fit, slop-free connection that's designed for off-roading. This close-fitting design provides a smoother ride than a pintle/lunette ring connection with less rattle. It also makes it easy to back your vehicle and trailer up without jackknifing.


When combined, the Lock 'N' Roll hitch and coupler also create a fully articulating connection that's great for off-roading. The bearing that's built into the vehicle-end hitch allows for 360 degrees of rotation, which means that your trailer could actually roll all the way over and not take your vehicle with it. The connection also pivots side to side and up and down, making it easy to take rough trails without jarring your setup. This also allows for fast and easy disconnection, even at extreme angles.


How Lock 'N' Roll Works

Lock N Roll Fully Connected

Each Lock 'N' Roll setup requires 2 parts - a trailer end and a vehicle end. Together they create a strong, secure connection. To connect, just line up the trailer end and vehicle end together and place the outer metal tabs of the trailer-end coupler into the hooks on the vehicle-end hitch. Then fold the latching plates on the vehicle-end hitch down and secure them in place over the tabs using the included pin and clip. With the latching plates secured, the Lock 'N' Roll assembly will stay firmly connected.


In Action Diagram

When the trailer-side coupler and vehicle-side hitch are secured together, they form an articulating assembly with 3 axes of directional motion. The uniquely designed bearing on the vehicle-side hitch allows the connection to rotate a full 360 degrees. The trailer-side coupler's hinge allows the connection to pivot to the left and to the right. And when the 2 parts are joined, the tabs will roll inside of the hooks so that the entire assembly can tilt up and down.


Towing with the Lock 'N' Roll is easy, and it gives you a connection that's both flexible and secure.

Quality trailer hitch. Exactly as advertised. Strong heavy steel. Good welds. Fits perfectly. Prompt delivery. It will certainly enhance my off road trailering experience. The only modification I made was to remove the needle style zerk fitting and replaced it with a standard zerk fitting. Makes for easier lubing the joint. Glad to be rid of my restrictive ball hitch. 608168

  • Will Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 Fit 2018 NuCamp Tag Boondock Edition
  • I looked up pictures of the front of your 2018 NuCamp Tag Boondock Edition and it uses a standard A-frame style coupler like what the Lock N Roll Articulating Coupler # 336TS504 is designed to fit so this would work well for you. You'd have to have your old coupler removed and this one welded in place of it. For the shank that slides into the hitch of your vehicle you'd want the part # 336VS501 for a fixed height solution of the part # 336VS503505 which has a three height settings.

  • Which Version of the Lock N Roll Articulating Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler Fits 3 inch Channel
  • The Lock N Roll Articulating Channel Tongue Trailer Coupler # 336TS528 that you referenced is designed to fit on 2 inch wide frame channel. If you need a version that fits a 3 inch channel you'd want the part # 336TS508 instead. The 3 inch channel width is the most common size seen on trailers so this would be most likely your best option. The distance from the bolt center to the top of the channel is 3/4 inches. On the vehicle side you'd then need the # 336VS501 which fits a 2 inch...

  • The vehicle side of the Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch # 336VS501 can be locked to the vehicle's 2-inch receiver hitch using any standard pin lock such as # e98880. The mating part that bolts or welds on to the trailer # 336TS508 will only couple to the Lock N Roll system. Unlike a traditional ball coupler, which is compatible with any hitch ball of a matching size, the trailer-side Lock 'N' Roll coupler can only connect to a vehicle-side Lock 'N' Roll hitch. So your trailer...

  • The use of Lock N Roll Articulating Trailer Hitch for 2" Receivers # 336VS501 does not add sway to the setup. Couplers normally can articulate to the left and right like what this allows so it would not be any more prone to sway than a ball style coupler.

  • How to Gain More Articulation with Trailer Coupler for Off-Road Towing
  • The closest thing that we have to what you are looking for is something like the Demco # Demco Trailer Coupler w/ 5-Position Adjustable Channel # DM6125-81 (which can come in a variety of options) which you can interchange with the Demco Lunette Ring # DM09557-81.Aside from that there isn't anything to change a standard trailer coupler out to a lunette ring.
