Not sure how I've managed to pull so many trailers with pintle hooks for so many miles without any clunking or banging.
Granted, running a large tow ring (military size) in a regular size pintle hook will make noises when turning tight since there's not enough room for the tow ring to move freely.
Also, with a light pull trailer (not a semi trailer like all of us normally tow) like I pulled today, on uneven ground it'll make a racket. That's obviously because there's near zero tongue weight.
For normal use, I don't know how people manage to make them noisy.
I have converted almost all my bumper pull trailers to pintle style, much preferring the stronger, simpler setup.
Maybe if we start telling people that the brain is an app, they will start using it?
