Trailer Hitches




Trailer Hitches
We carry only the top-of-the-line, custom-fitted trailer hitches made by the top manufacturers such as Draw-tite, Reese, and Hidden Hitch Hitches and accessories. Due to the custom fit, they bolt to the frame, and use pre-existing holes in most situations, so typically there is no welding or drilling required. 

Trailer Hitches are divided into four Classes each of which has a maximum Tongue Weight (TW) limit and a maximum Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) limit. 
Always consult your vehicle owners manual for information about towing a trailer and your vehicle's weight capacity limitations.

Receiver Style Hitches (Box Hitch or Tube Hitch)
The ball mount (also called ball platform) is removable when the hitch is not being used. This leaves the hitch's opening about even with your bumper. The most popular style of hitch and is what you see on most trucks, SUV's, RV's and vans. Best choice when using bike racks, motorcycle racks, cargo racks, etc. 
Class I and II receiver style hitches can only be used for towing as a weight carrying hitch. 
Class III and IV receiver style hitches can be used either as a weight carrying hitch or as a weight distributing hitch when a weight distribution system is added. 
Receivers can also be installed on the front of your vehicle to make launching and recovering boats easier, to attach bike racks while you are towing a trailer or to mount a winch.
