Gen-Y Hitch Debuts the Executive: A Fifth-Wheel Torsion-Flex Pin Box

Press Release: Gen-Y Hitch 

Nappanee, IN (October 29, 2019) - GEN-Y Hitch, a Northern Indiana hitch company, has been revolutionizing the towing industry since 2012 with its heavy-duty drop hitches and later, the Torsion-Flex technology. One of its most recent additions has combined the Torsion-Flex technology with the fifth-wheel pin box. This innovative product has been titled the Executive.

As the name suggests, the Executive gives the user power and control over adverse road conditions. Not only does the Executive provide control over the road, but also provides safety for the customer and cargo. By isolating the truck from the trailer, only 10% of the inertia transfers compared to 100% when using a hard connection hitch. The combination of control, safety, and a smoother ride creates the ultimate towing experience for all RV’ers. This product is available in both kingpin and gooseneck conversion models.


In 2012, Carl Borkholder, the founder of GEN-Y Hitch, began manufacturing adjustable hitches out of his home. He owned a tree-trimming company at the time and was constantly forced to switch hitches to be able to connect to different trailers. His ideas have since made GEN-Y Hitch what it is today and continue to transform the towing market. In just seven years, the company has grown from its humble beginnings in a garage into a multi-million dollar company serving customers throughout the USA, Canada, and Australia.
