Default Flip-over hitch extenders

Added 8 feet of pipe to the factory hitch for my Fish Trap by drilling holes and using quick release pins. Just used one size larger pipe from a torn down canvas garage and slipped it over top. This gives it a smoother ride behind the sled or quad and also keeps the slush out in the warm weather.

Nice idea, I was wondering why some of the sleds going by were using long tow ropes, yours won't rear end you.

I did same thing (sorta) to my sleigh hitch but I added to the center of the hitch to extend that out and keep the V away from the quad as the hitch was rubbing on the tracks I have on it.Turning really sucked until I made the addition.
