REVIEWSTowing and Trailering Basics
Open trailers are basically flat platforms or a pair of parallel tracks on which your car rides, and loading is via a pair of ramps. You've spent thousands of dollars and as many hours making your car virtually perfect, and now you're going to load it onto a trailer and go places. Although towing may look straightforward, like most things that look easy, it takes a lot of careful preparation to do it right.
What will you tow with?
Let's start with the tow vehicle. Every vehicle has a manufacturer;s towing limit - which should be listed in the owner's manual or on the manufacturer's website. For some vehicles, that limit is zero - you simply shouldn't tow at all. You can damage the transmission, overtax the engine and brakes, and lose control. For other vehicles, the towing limit can range from approximately 1,500 pounds for cars and small SUVs to 7,500 pounds and more for trucks and full-size SUVs. And, if you've exceeded the weight limit, the manufacturer could deny a warranty repair or void your warranty altogether.
Just because your tow vehicle is rated to pull the load you have in mind doesn't mean it's ready to go. It needs the right equipment, which includes:
electric brake controllers
transmission oil coolers
Many manufacturers offer complete towing packages, which are added at the factory or by the dealer. If you have any questions about whether your vehicle is ready to tow, check with the dealer.
NETWORK KEY POINT 1
Never exceed your tow vehicle's manufacturer towing limit.
