I imagine Casita just uses whatever couplers that Redneck trailer supply sends them.. I've seen couplers from Fulton, Shelby, and Attwood on various Casitas that have been brought to me for repair.. The only way to find out what brand coupler is on YOUR Casita is to grind the paint off the top or sides of the coupler.. The manufacturer's name and the coupler's part number along with the weight rating will be stamped in the metal..

If you're needing a rebuild kit for your coupler, they're probably going to start being difficult to find since Shelby Industries ceased operations in October 2016..

I haven't searched for a repair kit since my Shelby coupler is fixing to be replaced with a 10,000# Attwood 2 5/16" coupler so I have a bit more weight margin when towing a boat behind my Casita..


 

I tried going to Shelby Industries website last night and got an immediate redirect to Dutton-Lainson's site, so there's a possibility that they may have repair parts for the older Shelby couplers..
