COOL NEW ACCESSORY:
DECORATIVE HITCH COVER

Honestly,who wouldn't want to look like they're driving a train?

Theinspiration for this little beauty came when one of PI Engineering'semployees backed the RailDriver simulator trailer into the flatbed trailer in the parking lot and then claimed he was only tryingto 'couple' them. Then, after they covered up the dent with a RailDriverbumper sticker, they thought: "Why not make a coupler hitchfor the company van?" Since nobody stopped these enterprisingemployees, they went ahead with the project.

Thiscast high-impact plastic hitch cover is a great addition to any rail enthusiast'svehicle. The coupler is a rusty dark brown and with the includedadapter fits either an 1¼" or 2" receiver.
