Built-In Shock Absorption for a Smooth Ride

The last thing you want is for your horses to get jostled around while you're on the road. Driving over bumps, potholes, and uneven terrain causes road shock, which can result in a rough, uncomfortable ride for you and your ponies. It can even potentially damage your trailer. The Pegasus from Gen-Y Hitch is designed to absorb road shock at the connection point to create a safe, smooth, and stable ride. This is thanks to the internal construction of the coupler, which is similar to that of a torsion axle.


pegasus torsion

Pivot points are built into this gooseneck coupler. This allows for movement between the base of the coupler, which connects to the ball in your truck bed, and the top tube of the coupler, which connects to your trailer. When your vehicle hits a bump, the base of the coupler will move up or down accordingly.


torsion

Built into the Pegasus are tubes with inner bars that are surrounded by rubber cords. As the coupler's base rises or falls, these inner bars twist inside of the tubes, attempting to follow the base's motion. But the rubber cords prevent the bars from twisting too far. And as each bar turns, these cords compress to absorb the shock. This means that any shock experienced by your truck can be absorbed before it reaches your trailer, and the shock experienced by your trailer won't get transferred to your truck.


Offset Design Gives Extra Clearance When Towing

This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler has an offset design. The bottom of the coupler, where it attaches to the ball, is positioned 11" away from the coupler tube, which inserts into the outer tube on your trailer. This provides 11" of extra clearance, giving you more space between your truck cab and trailer when making tight turns.


Easily Check Your Vertical Load

pegasus weight scale

The vertical load, or tongue weight, refers to the weight that a fully loaded trailer exerts downward on the hitch ball of the tow vehicle. Too little vertical load can cause trailer sway and too much can cause poor performance.


This Gen-Y gooseneck coupler has a built-in mechanical scale so that you can check to see if your vertical load is too high or too low. The highest arrow on the scale indicates your maximum vertical load (3,500 lbs). The lowest arrow indicates no vertical load (0 lbs). A vertical load of at least 2,000 lbs is recommended for the built-in shock absorption to function effectively. This means that the scale's white indicator marker should be between the highest arrow and the middle arrow when you hook up your trailer to tow.

Video Transcript for Review of Gen-Y Hitch Gooseneck Trailer Coupler - Horse Trailer Gooseneck Coupler - 325-GH-7006

Michael: Hi, there. I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at the GEN-Y Pegasus Gooseneck Coupler. This is designed specifically for your horse trailers. And I don't have to tell you what an investment horses are both financially and in time and effort to keep them healthy. So as you're traveling down the road, I'm sure you are more than aware of every bump and drop in the road and how that's affecting your horses in the trailer, jostling them around, just making it an uncomfortable ride all around.

That's where this coupler is going to come in. It's going to help smooth out that ride so that you're not getting that chucking and jarring. So it's going to be much more comfortable for both you and your horses. The way that it achieves that, we've got several pivot points here. These are going to act like a torsion axle.So they've got rubber on the inside so as the truck hits some bumps or divots, potholes, those kinds of things, it's going to kind of push this arm down and that rubber on the inside there, that pivot point, that's going to help resist some of that.

So it's going to kind of cushion, absorb that shock so that it's not transferred back to our trailer. And then vice versa, when our trailer hits the pothole, it's not going to transfer that back to the truck. So it's going to be much more comfortable, a lot less jarring for both us and the equine friends that we are traveling with. In addition to smoothing out the ride, we're also going to have an 11 inch offset design so that it's going to create more separation between the truck cab and the trailer so we can make some of those tighter turns a little bit easier.So, several big benefits there. This front end here, this is what's going to attach to your gooseneck ball.

It is going to fit your standard two and 5/16th inch gooseneck ball. If we we're to turn this on its side, you can see we've got that manual latching pen that's going to hold the hitch ball in the socket so that we don't have to worry about it coming disconnected. And that pin can easily be removed by pushing in here and dropping it below. So can't do it right now because it's sitting on the table, but once you have a little bit of clearance there, resting on your gooseneck ball should be easily able to remove that pin when you need to, and it will stay in place when you're traveling down the road. The other end here, this is what's going to connect to our trailer.

We've got a round inner tube that is going to be right at four inches wide. So it's going to pair with your existing outer tube on your trailer. We've got several different adjustment holes here to get it connected at the right height.We've got the pin that's going to keep it all in place. So I'll take that out so we can measure some of those holes and make sure this is going to work for you. Our measurements are going to be from our . We've got both sets. We've got our standard straight-through holes that are perpendicular to our direction of travel. And then we've got our offset holes here, all of them from center to center. From our two here, it's going to be right at two and three quarters of an inch. And then from our offset holes, it's also going to be two and three quarters of an inch between each of them. The standard holes, there's only two of them. So that's going to be your two and three quarter inch max distance, their adjustment. For these offset holes, put that all together because there's three and you're going to get about five and a half inches of adjustment. From the top of our tube down to the bottom of the offset or our bottom offset hole to the center of it, we're right about 15 and a half inches.So, keep that in mind when you're trying to decide if this is going to work with your trailer. You want that outer tube to be able to accommodate that so that we're not pushing too high up into the tube. The outer tube is going to fit over top of this. And then from our standard, it's going to be right about 13 and three quarters of an inch to get to that center of that bottom standard hole there.So it should be enough for most of your outer tubes. You can measure yours to make sure that it's going to work for you. What I mean is you just want to make sure that the top here is going to fit within your outer tube so when you have it latched in place, there's not going to be too much material here, that it will sit within your outer tube. So, that's what I'm talking about there. This is made of a very heavy-duty steel construction. And when I say heavy-duty, I mean heavy-duty. It is just under 100 pounds. So, it is going to take a little bit of muscle to get this put in place on your trailer, but it does have a powder-coated finish to help resist any wear and corrosion. So we're not going to have to worry about that down the road. It's going to do a good job for us.Now, one thing that's very important with this coupler is going to be the tongue weight. If you're not familiar with what tongue weight is, it's also sometimes called vertical load and that's the weight that is being pushed down onto the hitch ball when you have your trailer fully-loaded and hooked up. So it's the downward pressure on that hitch ball. And that's very important for this coupler because in order for it to absorb the shock, it needs to have at least 2000 pounds on it or it's basically not worth your money to buy this. So if your horse trailer doesn't have 2000 pounds of tongue weight, you're really not going to need this. It's going to ride about the same as your solid coupler. So, once you have that 2000 pounds on there, that's going to put enough pressure on this that it's going to engage these pivot arms so that you get that cushioning effect. Anything less than that, it's really not worth it, I wouldn't spend my money on it.If you've got a 2000 pound trailer or less, just go ahead with your standard coupler. But if you have more than 2000 pounds, this is going to work really well for you. And in order to figure out that 2000 pound weight range, you've got your little built-in mechanical scale here. Give you a closer shot. So that mechanical scale is going to help you figure out if you have the right amount of tongue weight. You can see it's got those three little notches in it, kind of teeth sticking out. So your max load limit is going to be 3,500 pounds. And that's going to be indicated by that very top tooth there. Your bottom tooth, right about where that white line is, that's zero.The included scale is going to help give you that idea of where you're sitting at with your tongue range. Your optimal ride vehicle load, you want it to be between that 2000 pounds and 3,500 pounds. So, you want to make sure that you are fitting in with what is actually going to engage these arms without exceeding the maximum that it can handle. If you go above that 3,500 pounds, again, it's basically going to be useless for you just in the opposite direction. It's not going to absorb the shock like it's supposed to. So you want to fall right within that range. Our gross towing weight is going to be 25,000 pounds. So that is nothing to do with what's pushing down on your gooseneck, that's just the weight of the trailer that you're pulling. Obviously, you want to calculate that when it's fully loaded, you have all your horses and all your gear and everything and the trailer. It shouldn't exceed that 25,000 pounds.This does come with a five-year limited warranty from GEN-Y and it is made here in the USA. I think this is going to be a great option for those of you who have horses that travel with them a lot. You want to make sure that you're taking care of those horses, that you're not causing any joint problems with the bumping and jarring as you're traveling down the road. This is going to help a lot smooth out that ride, make it much more comfortable both for the horses and for you as you're traveling along. So that's going to complete our look at the GEN-Y Pegasus. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Thanks for watching.
