It’s a common misconception that you must have a truck or SUV if you want to tow something behind your vehicle. However, at Hitch King, we say that all vehicles – no matter the type – can have their own custom hitch. Whether you need to pull your pop-up camper for vacation or your need to pull a small trailer for a cross country move, we can help you get the job done as long as you follow the tow rating on your vehicle.
Check Your Manual
To see if towing with your vehicle is possible, start by checking your owner’s manual. If it says “manufacturer does not recommend towing”, you should probably look into a truck rental. However, more than likely, it will list a specific towing capacity in pounds. That is the weight limit you’ll need to abide by.
Install a Hitch
Next, you’ll need a way to connect your vehicle with the load you want it to tow. A tow hitch attaches to the chassis of the vehicle to create the strongest point to connect a trailer or camper. Hitch King can build custom hitch solutions for vehicles of all makes and models. And, even better, our Floral Park, NY, location boasts a new, state-of-the-art facility for trailer hitch installations, and a stockroom loaded with rugged and ready parts and accessories so you’re sure to find what you need.
Consider the Extras
If this is a one-time towing excursion, you probably don’t need any extra equipment. However, if you’re planning on regularly using your vehicle to tow, there are a few extra accessories that can make the job easier:
- Safety chains
- Tow ropes and straps
- Mount locks
- Hitch covers
- And so much more
