How to Hitch Your Trailer

When you’re getting ready to tow your trailer, whether it’s to haul a load across your property or across town, there are many steps you need to take to ensure a safe trip. One of the most important steps is knowing how to properly hitch your trailer to your tow vehicle.

The hitch is the mechanism that includes the ball support platform, ball, and other components that extend and attach to your tow vehicle, including bumpers that are intended to serve as hitches. It’s extremely important that you match your hitch and trailer. Both your hitch and tow vehicle should be rated for the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of your trailer. Using a hitch with a load rating less than that of the trailer, as well as using a tow vehicle with a towing capacity less than the load rating of the trailer, can result in loss of control, an accident, and potentially lead to serious injury or death. You should also be sure the hitch size matches the coupler size and that all hitch components are tight before coupling the trailer to the tow vehicle.
