EZ Hitch Trailer Table Review
Every off-season we check out new tailgate products and tailgating equipment to see if we should be making any upgrades. And while plenty of good and bad tailgate ideas come and go, we pay particular interest to the ones that:
- Are easy to use
- Are functional
- Don’t break the bank.
Recently we came across the EZ Hitch Trailer Table and decided to check it out. While this tailgate accessory has many applications, we’ll focus on the potential use for tailgating.
Here are the specs:
- Table: 36″ x 20″ ABS Plastic
- Weight: 16lbs
- 4 Recessed Cup Holders
- Bottle Opener Attachment
- EZ Hitch Umbrella
First things first, the EZ Hitch Table isn’t for everyone. It’s a small, portable tailgate set-up for those who don’t want to put up tons of equipment, related expenses, or simply have smaller tailgates. It is also great for areas where space is limited–like some Texas Longhorn tailgating areas. We don’t all need huge spaces to tailgate, so when you only have one or two regular parking spaces you can get back to the fundamentals–tailgating on an actual tailgate!
Sure, it sounds old fashioned, especially compared to those Texas tailgaters doing custom tailgate trailers (us included) or gutting out school buses for a $100K. But that doesn’t mean the EZ Hitch Table doesn’t serve a good purpose. Most people can’t or don’t want to spend thousands on tailgate equipment and most tailgates are 10-15 people, which is why this is a good option. We break down the uses like this:
- Great When Tailgate Space Is Limited
Perfect for a 5-10 man tailgate rallying point.
- Easy To Set-Up
You can literally set this up in minutes with no tools or heavy lifting.
At $159.99 you’ll get a set up for the price of 1 pop-up canopy.
- Old School
Attaches to a hitch so you can actually use your truck tailgate–it puts the “tailgate” back in to tailgating.
This should definitely be considered for those with smaller tailgates. It frames out your space with some style if you are just hanging on a truck tailgate, and offers just enough shade and table coverage for a small group.
There’s also upgrades you can purchase such as colored hitch bars, multi-colored table tops, and umbrella styles. Personally, I’m gonna bug them about branded Longhorn versions. Check out the EZ Hitch Trailer Table for yourself.
