If it has a rotating pintle it will be suitable for towing suitably equipped trailers offroad. If it has a fixed pintle then the lunette (loop) on the trailer needs to rotate instead. Not all trailers have rotating lunettes. If you end up with a fixed pintle and a fixed lunette the articulation of the trailer in relation to the tow vehicle is limited by the free play in the coupling.

Maybe because mine were older I found they needed regular lubrication to keep them rotation and opening / closing smoothly. Looked the right piece of kit on some of my previous 4x4s, but these days I have a combined tow ball and pin on the 4x4 camper, and a 2" receiver hitch which accepts a milled steel insert to take a 3/4" shackle.
