AL-KO launches new offroad ball coupling

By: Laura Gray


AL-KO has just unveiled a new offroad coupling for offroad caravans and camper trailers.

The new and improved, low-profile AL-KO Off-Road Coupling was engineered by AL-KO in Australia, based on feedback from manufacturers and owners about the existing offroad ball coupling.

ALKO Coupling 3500kg -Side1

 

It is designed for extreme offroad adventure and is suitable for extreme vertical and horizontal articulation.

It utilizes a standard 50mm ball coupling for quick and easy hitching.

"The original AL-KO Off-Road Ball Coupling has been a popular product for off-road caravans and camper trailers for many years’ said AL-KO marketing services manager Brad Hooper.
"Over this time we have taken feedback on board from both manufacturers and caravan owners. Our Australian engineers have incorporated these learnings into a new generation product that provides further improved ease of use and durability for serious off-road use."

The coupling, which is zinc-plated, is available in 3500kg fixed electric configuration and a 2000kg mechanical override version. Both versions are available on new caravans and campers, can also be retrofitted to older RVs and come with a two-year warranty.
