BMW X3 Trailer Hitches

A car isn’t some sort of rare and luxurious item it was just half a century ago. But while it becomes more popular, nothing changes in the way it functions and the way we use it. The cars still accelerate and break, you can turn left and right and nothing new will be introduced until someone invents a hover-car. Still the horsepower has been boosted quite a bit and unlike most cars in the previous century, the BMW X3 is totally capable of dragging a fully loaded trailer around along with its own weight. If you want to make full use of this power, you should browse through the BMW X3 trailer hitches catalogue at CARiD.com.

The weight of a trailer with the cargo will influence your choice the most. About 10% of the gross weight is carried by the tongue of a trailer hitch. If your trailer weighs about 1500 pounds, then the tongue weight is 150 pounds, which can be easily handled by a Class I trailer hitch. If you wish to tow a larger trailer you'll have to opt for a weight distributing trailer hitch of a higher class. The toughest trailer hitches are the gooseneck and 5th wheel trailer hitches.
