As best as I can tell, the coupler on my Ascape is a RAM CA5210-B A-Frame coupler.
While it seems very secure it is lacking any kind of adjustment resulting in a noisy coupler – ball matchup. Most other coupler allow for some adjustment of the latching part.
Is mine the only noisy one? By noisy I don’t mean a constant rattling but some play is noticeable going over bumps, railroad tracks, etc.
My receiver is a tapered fit and solid so I’m pretty sure the source of my noise is coupler/ball match up.
Wondering if your Ascape has same coupler and whether you have same experiences re coupler/ball noise.
Usually the receiver is the source of noise and rattling but that is easily taken care of by an anti-rattle clamp. I used an anti-rattle clamp with my Santa Fe’s and it worked very well.
The hitch on my Volvo is by StealthHitches. The hitch is not visible unless actually towing. The receiver locks into a tapered receptacle.
