Smile Hitch alignment ideas

Have been looking for a decent system to aid in hitching up the trailer especially while alone. there seems to be a lot of different hitch alignment products offered for sale.

from what I see the EZ Hitch looks good , also some of the magnetic ideas look to be quite useable. I even see one with a mirror to show you the hitch alignment.

What do you use and what changes would you do to improve it?

The only problem I see with the easy hitch at least for me anyways is that I would need three of them for the three types of balls that I tow with.

I have seen the magnetic ones at the RV shows, the ones with the poles on them and they seem to be pretty good and portable.

Although I dont have them yet they would get my vote simply for the above stated reason, if you only ever two your TT then the EZ Hitch is really cool

EZ Hitch may be okay on a PUP, but my TT jack doesn't have a wheel on it. I could use it for the boat, though.

I use the yellow poles - easy enough.

Csinns,

I use the magnetic ones with the ball. In my case I only need one since when the ball is aligned with the TV spare tire, - the coupler is right over the ball.

Hope this helps.

Thanks everyone! Its great to get feedback from those who have experience
I think I will go with magnetic poles as well as I have a couple trailers ( utility and TT ) and this looks simpler

on another note I wonder if its possible to change /adjust my user name

it was supposed to be CS_in_NS but the server changed it to all lower case and no lines . if I can't its no big deal.
