A hitch is a bolt-in accessory that is used to lift up and apply leverage to the tow vehicle when towing. It can be installed to tow trailers, motorcycles, bikes, garden tractors and other items. Two general types of hitches exist: the weight-carrying hitches and the weight-distributing hitches. Weight-carrying hitches are often used when towing lighter loads while weight-distributing hitches are generally used for larger, heavier trails.
Through innovative designs engineered to fit specific vehicle applications, most hitches nowadays can be easily installed with no extra modifications like drilling or welding. On most applications, hitch installation can take only thirty minutes or less. When installing, make sure the spare tire and the tail pipe are properly mounted. Follow the installation instructions of the hitch supplier.
Always remember to use a hitch that is strong enough to handle the maximum anticipated total weight of the trailer. The weight, however, should not exceed the towing capacity of the vehicle.
Whatever vehicle type you have, there's a hitch just for you. Today's market offers a variety of hitches for a wide range of domestic and import vehicles. Just make sure to choose the proper hitch for your specific vehicle make and you're good to go.
