No you can not tow a trailer that has a pullrite pin with one that does not. I have an adapter that I purchased that I carry in case the unit breaks down or I need it serviced. I did not want to spend the money for this hitch but now that I have used it love it. It turns tight, no thinking when backing up about the cab. It hitches and unhitches perfect. And I do not have to back straight into it. A little grease on the rails, some wd 40 on the latch and she is ready to go.
