With a growing number of drivers choosing to purchase SUVs and trucks, trailers of all types are becoming a more typical sight on our roads. Utilizing this newfound means of transport is one thing: however, using it accordingly and safely? That's quite another.
Whether one is hitching up an outdoor camping trailer, boat haulers, or an energy tag-along, being prepared is exceedingly important. Moreover, at Rhino Hitch Inc., we've assembled some of the most relevant information to assist you in selecting the ideal hitch for your towing needs.
The Ideal Hitch Provides Safety and Versatility!
A trailer hitch is a primary connector between the tow vehicle (a car, van, pickup truck, or SUV) and the trailer being towed. When making this connection, the load capacity should be considered. With this information in mind, the Rhino Hitch presents the most versatile, custom adjustable hitches today. These are the three top Rhino Hitches:
- The 2 "Receiver, has a hard black anodized with a max load capacity of 10,000 or 12,000 pounds
- The 2.5" Receiver, has a clear anodized finish with a max load capacity of 14,000 pounds
- The 3” Receiver has a clear anodized finish with a 10' drop and a max load capacity of 16,000 pounds
These three beautiful pieces of technology provide a full 9” vertical adjustment, keeping the trailer's deck level safe.
The Importance of Trailer Hitch Covers
Parts of most trailer hitches are removable. The ball part of the hitch (used to fasten the cargo to the truck) usually rests in the trailer hitch receiver opening. When the ball is removed, the receiver opening is left hollow. This opening protrudes from the tail of the truck and has sharp edges. People could bump into the metal rod or cut themselves on its sharp corners. Therefore, using a trailer hitch cover is a good idea to protect the trailer hitch receiver opening. Trailer hitch covers can cover the opening and prevent any debris from clogging it as well. Trailer hitch covers provide safety to a pickup truck. If a protective cover blocks it, people can't injure themselves on the trailer hitch receiver opening.
