  • We now carry the Ditch Hitch in all our Peace Country Business unit vehicles, and with the addition of a specific procedure on where, when and how the Ditch Hitch is to be used we have all but eliminated "Towing Related" incidents.


  • The Ditch Hitch is safe, lightweight, user friendly and in my opinion, the best towing solution available today. Thanks for a great product.
