 “Our coupler meets the new demand for 3-inch high capacity gooseneck hitches,” says Todd Walstrom, VP of CPP’s trailer group. “The coupler builds upon the success of our Bulldog 2-5/16 BX1 with increased landing area, a force transfer feature, and firm/rigid two-position adjustability.” 

The 3-inch ball, 40,000 pound capacity gooseneck coupler, part number 1289200300, is the highest capacity in the industry and is ideal for heavy duty and extreme applications.  

“Many pick-up trucks now have 3-inch capacity gooseneck systems,” says Walstrom. “Our Bulldog brand continues to lead in this new heavy duty market and allows customers to take advantage of this increased capability.” 

The NATM show runs February 26-28 at the South Point Hotel, Casino & Spa in Las Vegas with the CPP booth located at 1009 and 1108.
