Front hitches make it much easier to reverse a trailer.
You dont get a crick in your neck.
It is posible to see all of the trailer, when there is no boat on it.
You can see where the trailer is as it goes over the top of a steep slip.
It puts the vehicles steering wheels close to the trailer hitch which gives you far more control.
It takes a bit of getting used to, everything still goes the wrong way.
They are a God send when the whole rig is 37 ft long. (Rangy, 6.5m boat and long draw bar.)
