Pick Up With A Utility Trailer Hits Tree October 2009

  1. Before towing anything, have your hitch inspected by a qualified hitch installation company, and have them determine what the maximum tongue weight can be. This is usually 10% of the hitch's rated capacity. Note, the correct term is hitch, not ball. A ball is rated by its own towing capacity. A hitch is rated by not only its towing capacity but also by the tongue weight. Again, the safest way to accomplish this is to take your vehicle to a shop that specializes in installing hitches. If you have a bumper type hitch, don't tow anything your wife can't lift onto the ball. The biggest error you can make is "cheaping out" and not going to a qualified shop.
