Did anyone ever see one? Or know of an existing example?

This needs a modern revisiting!

happy coaching!

There was such a hitch commercially available in the 70's.  I can't find any info online but remember seeing the ads in Trailer Life Magazine.  It may have been called the "Shadow" and mounted on the roof of a regular sedan.

So, all you trailer hitch trivia buffs, anyone else remember this thing?

I'm really liking that setup but I'm not sure how it would anchor to a bike helmet, a person would have to have a really good grip on the hnadlebars lol, ok, libby just accused me of getting too far out in left field again lol, sorry, but I really like the idea, that 360 degree turning feature is amazing, I'm wondering why you don't see more of those hitches on the politiacal scene in washington lol, oops went there again, sorry lol.
