    McCallum, fantastic picture and idea. I already have a drawbar, so it should be simple to rig up something like you did. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, and thanks for the picture.

    One can learn a lot on this forum. Thanks to all who replied.

    Since it was raining in NC today, I decided to make the device. Bought a new drawbar and 2 trailer balls (1 7/8" and 2") for $23.08. Went to a welding shop where they made the side pieces for me to bolt to the draw bar. Total cost for welding & metal was $25.00. Bought 4 3/4" bolts and nuts for $7.15. Grand total of parts & materials: $55.25. I had part of a can of John deere green paint that I used to paint it with. So, for about $55, and a trip to the welder and Agri-Supply, I got what I wanted. Sure beats Northern's $200 price.

    Once the paint dries, and it stops raining, I'll try it out.

    Thanks to all who offered advice, and especially McCallum for his picture.

    Rained here all day and cool too. Wished I could have been in my shop working instead of at work. I have another 3PH Gooseneck about half way finished for a friend of mine. I know you will enjoy your drawbar. Glad to help.

    McCallum,
    very nice looking job. Have you thought of welding a hitch on your hitch for low boy trailors? That way you could move either type. On my box blade i welded a plate with a 2" ball to pull my low boy around the yard. But you have to weld on a horzontional (however you spell it) up and down piece under the plate for ridigidness. If that makes sense. I have used this also to pull around my goose neck after lowering it down where i could pick it up and move it. Oh and also works great on my 31' camping trailor.

    Just some ideas. If any one wants a picture i could try and get it posted on here.

    John4nh, i made that same suggestion when I saw a previous pic of the 3ph gooseneck hitch. Like you, it seemed an easy way to have the best of both worlds in one hitch. Of course Mac may not wanna wrestle that hitch just for a lowboy!

    john4nh - Use my drawbar stabilizer for all bumper hitch applications as I made that years ago. The 3ph gooseneck I made strictly for that purpose. Would be easy to modify but scruffy's right. Just don't want to wrestle with it for regular trailer. Put a picture out there - sure would like to see it.
