PROVO, Utah — Equal-i-zer Hitch was awarded the Readers’ Choice Award by Trailer Life Magazine for the third consecutive year, the company announced today.
RVers have a passion for sharing the experience and wisdom they have gained over years of trying different products and traveling all over the country. Beginning in 2012 Trailer Life Magazine began conducting an online poll to find out which vehicles, destinations and products make life on the road easier and more enjoyable for RVers.
One of the categories surveyed is trailer hitches. According to Sue Seidlitz with Trailer Life, there were 10,000 voters weighing-in on all things related to trailers, campgrounds, hitches and trailer accessories.
The survey was conducted online and allowed thousands of readers to choose from over a hundred brands, voting for their top picks in more than 20 categories. Equal-i-zer Hitch has once again been named the Gold Winner trailer hitch by Trailer Life readers, a recognition the company said they are the only ones ever to have received.
Utah, the home to Equal-i-zer Hitch, was also recognized as the favorite destination for RVers. Utah has five national parks, seven national monuments, two national recreation areas and one national historic site.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition. We work hard to provide the best sway control hitch on the market, and it’s a big testament to American Manufacturing that every part on this hitch is made in America,” said Rich Elliott, vice president of sales and marketing. “It’s really fun that the favorite hitch is manufactured in the favorite state for RVing. We really enjoy talking to Equal-i-zer hitch owners, and see a lot of them at local campgrounds and National Parks.”
Other notable companies receiving Gold awards included Honda, Camping World, Ford, Keystone, and Cracker Barrel.
“We congratulate all the companies recognized,” said Jed Anderson, CEO. “We also want to thank our customers, dealers and distributors for the nomination. We appreciate their business and support, and are committed to providing the best protection for their journey.”
