A swivel hitch is designed to provide the extra range of side-to-side motion present in a motorcycle ball-and-socket coupling that does not occur in trikes and four-wheelers. A swivel offers a smoother towing experience for large or heavily loaded trailers. It also protects your bike and your trailer in case the bike happens to tip over. Without a swivel, the tongue or hitch can be twisted and damaged. With a swivel in place, you'll just need to pick up your bike, wipe the embarrassed look off your face, and ride on.
This swivel adaptor is designed to fit the Shelby 5128 model coupler. If your coupler does not have a brand name and you aren't sure what you need, download the Swivel Hitch Worksheet (opens in new window). It will guide you on the measurements you need to take to get the right swivel.

Swivel Hitch for Shelby 5128 Coupler
I never give five stars for anything...... That being said, this is a fine piece of craftsmanship and it FIT like it should. I pull a 2003 Bunkhouse LX Grand Estate camper with a GL 1800, the camper is 300 lbs and holds 200 lbs of gear. With this swivel I noticed a big difference in the cornering and could not be happier. Thank you Open Road Outfitters for a GREAT product. David Murphy
