Trailer hitch for Bushtec

I have a Bushtec trailer to pull behind my LT and now have the confidence and practice with the bike I needed to begin to use it. I am going to buy either a Dauntless or Bushtec brand hitch. Can I use either model to properly tow the trailer and does anyone happen to have one for sale? Thanks kindly, John

Re: Trailer hitch for Bushtec

IMO the Bushtec is the better hitch as all the pull load is direct to the main frame. Of course that is what I have. I got mine for free just for checking out an LT for sale at a Nashville Honda dealer for a guy in NY. The rub was I had to pay the Honda dealer about 180 to remove it for me. You will want the lighting isolator as well.
