Seeing some of the more twisty pics and granted those are usually a small trailer, would you recommend a pintle hook and loop arrangement over a standard ball hitch. If you twist your ball out of the hitch you are going to be screwed. (Of course if you were a Boy Scout and are prepared, you should be able to rig something with your safety chains and baling wire to get out. You don't need driving traction on your trailer tires, but you definitely need to protect the sidewalls and tread. Have any of you had problems with your tires, or do most of you run off-road suv tires for the protection.
