How to Hitch a Trailer
Knowing how to hitch a trailer is a key component of owning and using a trailer. Your safety, and the safety of those on the road with you, depends on your skills and competency when you hitch up a trailer to your tow vehicle. By hitching a trailer to your truck or SUV, you are saying to the world that you are knowledgeable and safe when taking your vehicle out on the road. If you aren’t sure how to hitch a trailer or tow a trailer, then you need to get some education BEFORE you ever purchase your first trailer.
The National Association of Trailer Manufacturers has some easy-to-follow guides on how to hitch a trailer, the best tow vehicle for your trailer, trailer maintenance, and how to safely and efficiently load your trailer. During Trailer Safety Week, we will be sharing their videos here and on Facebook.
