Bremen, IN (August 3, 2017) – GEN-Y has been constantly on the forefront when it comes to innovation in the hitch industry,  from their patented adjustable drop hitch to their proprietary torsion hitch to their frame mounted torsion hitch. Now, GEN-Y enters a new phase with their very first coupler offering, the all new GEN-Y Torsion Gooseneck Surge Coupler.

“We’ve been asked by so many to get a torsion solution for goosenecks,” said GEN-Y President Carl Borkholder. “Until now, it has been hitches only, but this coupler is going to change the way things are done with goosenecks. Our proprietary torsion technology mitigates 90% of the inertia between truck and trailer, which, if you’ve ever hauled a gooseneck, you know is a big deal.”

The GEN-Y Torsion Gooseneck Surge Coupler offers the same type of specs you have seen in the industry from other gooseneck couplers (25,000 lb. towing, 5000 lb. tongue weight, but with the added benefit of torsion, which leaves you and your cargo feeling less beat up over time. GEN-Y plans to offer it on their website at as well as through their dealer network, which currently stands at over 160 dealers across the USA, plus a dealership in Australia and in Canada.

“We have been so excited for so long about this,” said National Sales Manager, Joel Helmuth. “We know what this will do for folks who use a gooseneck, and we are so happy to bring another solution to the table that has been missing for so many decades.”
