Default Tired of dinging up license plate and tailgate when backing up to trailer?

I have had this for a couple years now. It makes hitching up your trailer a snap, and it is not cumbersome at all. Its worth its weight in gold. I actually prefer hitching up myself now rather than with help. Its adjustable and has ticks in the up and down swivel so you know exactly where to set it at each time. The over tailgate clips will slide over tailgate and are non marring. The suction cups will hold it to rear windows. My Avalanche has cargo covers over the bed of the truck, and I still use it with the cargo covers in place, with the back one lifted up a bit. I think this would work on pickups too.

Is that because you have a boiler covering it up?
