Pintle Hitch on trailer

Your hitch looks perfectly normal, just loose.

I'd suggest adding more washers (or ideally a spring as suggested earlier) to get the castleations closer to the through hole on the shaft. And use a cotter pin that actually fits the hole.

Hot damn, learned 2 things in this thread. Seem like the best way to do this would be a solid bushing welded into the trailer? Take advantage of shank length since ya got it.
