Getting Ready for Your First Tow?

When planning your first tow, there are a number of factors to check to ensure it's a safe one. Whether it's your vehicle's towing capacity or your hitch's weight rating, you'll need to make sure you're able to tow the load you have planned.

The first step is to find out how much the load weighs, then you can determine if your vehicle can handle it. Even if your vehicle's powertrain has enough horsepower, you'll want to make sure your hitch can support the load, too. You'll also want to secure the load and make sure it doesn't shift.
