In order to have a travel trailer, you’ve got to have a tow vehicle—and you’ve got to have a hitch. There are a lot of different ways to tow a trailer, and while many vehicles come with their own hitches these days, not all of them do. This is why there are so many perfect accessories to help tow a trailer with any properly rated vehicle, and that goes for both sides of the hitch. If a vehicle doesn’t have a proper hitch to tow the trailer, there are plenty of versions available, and finding one that fits your tow vehicle should be simple. More than just a hitch, these aftermarket accessories can make trailer towing safer. Many hitches offer sway control to keep a travel trailer on the straight-and-narrow, making it safer on the road. Towing, in general, isn’t inherently dangerous, but many accessories can make it safer. In the event of a trailer coming loose, a breakaway system applies the brakes to the trailer to stop it from careening away. Weight distribution kits reduce the strain on the tow vehicle’s engine by spreading out the weight across the entire trailer instead of focusing it on a single point of the hitch. Tow a trailer the smarter and safer way.
