Anybody used one of these yet? I saw them for the first time in the local farm and fleet store yesterday.

Looks like it's got a small amount of shock absorbing capacity for a trailer that chucks back and forth.

Curt Rockerball, as the title says. I assume people can use google if they don't know what I'm talking about or can ignore the thread if they don't care.

2-5/16 Curt RockerBall

I can't really see the purpose of this. If your hitch and coupler are fastened together properly and greased there should not be any fore/aft movement. Looks to me like this thing would only introduce it.

Probably intended for hooking up some sort of tow behind with no weight distribution or sway control.

The RockerBall completely changes your towing experience by absorbing the erratic movement and rattling of your trailer at the coupling point.

Another silly gadget to correct operator error?

Just buy a hitch with a shock absorbing shank. Probably safer than that ball.
