It’s a Hitch and Tow to be exact and there’s a lot of “first” regarding this.
It’s my first car hauler trailer, my first Greenlight Hitch and Tow series in a long time, and my first Gas Monkey merchandise.
This Hitch and Tow series is my 48th post and comes with a 2016 Dodge Ram 2500 and Heavy Duty Car Hauler.
This is one of the merchandise I found in ToysRus from my previous blog. It requires minor assembly when taken out of the box.
It comes with a miniature adjustable trailer jack which you must screw it in. It was first difficult to get it to turn and I was concern that too much force will break the jack or create a loss thread so I just used a WD40 on the hole and that definitely help.
The ramps have to be assembled as well.
I never watched this show and never heard of them till I started seeing the logo appeared on some Greenlight vehicles and when one of my colleague showed me a short video of the Ford Econoline that 2 guys converted into a potential Hot Wheels design. This really got me interested so when this model pop up I didn’t hesitate to grab it.
So what do I think of this model?
I really like it. It does not have a lot of QC issues. There are no opening parts except for the working ramps which can be moved up and down and the trailer jack can be adjusted to go all the way down.
It has the Gas Monkey logo on the hood, side doors and on the top of the trailer.
It has some nice details on the trailer itself. I would rate this 5 out of 5 in detail. 4/5 out of 5 in quality control as the rubber tires need to be adjusted and 3.7 for play value as there are working ramps and adjustable trailer jack but these are not suitable for kids due to small parts and some plastic parts that makes it somewhat fragile.
Here’s a sample of the working ramp.
