Camco Brings Mobile Hitch Training to Nashville


NASHVILLE – Dealers had the opportunity to get hands-on training on Camco’s various Eaz Lift hitches earlier this week as the supplier brought its two mobile training centers to the Music City. 

The two 24-plus-foot trailers – each equipped with three styles of weight distributing hitches and two fifth wheel hitches, as well as a bike rack and other towing accessories – make for great mobile training tools, according to Tommy Doyle, sales manager for Camco’s Eaz Lift towing division. Working hitch models and training videos aboard the trailers let Camco highlight the features and benefits of Eaz Lift products.

The trailers are capable of holding and training about 10 dealer reps at a time. 

Camco can tailor the training to various dealership personnel, including RV sales reps, parts personnel and technicians, according to Mike Rhodes, a rep for the Camco’s Eaz Lift division. Generally speaking, the techs want the most extensive amount of training, which can last an hour or more, he added.

Doyle said Camco has had the company branded trailers and pickups to tow them for about a year and a half. Typically, the trailers visit dealerships, offering onsite training that dealers value because they don’t have to send their techs away for training, Rhodes said. With another trailer and pickup to be added to the fleet soon, Camco will have three trailers providing nationwide coverage for training, he added.

Camco’s Eaz Lift division offered the mobile training in its trailers Monday through Wednesday. The trailers were parked at the Caney Fork restaurant in Nashville.
