About Chevy Astro Trailer Hitches

Driving a Chevy Astro is an awesome experience. This minivan is large, with enough capacity to haul a large family around town or on a camping trip. Its huge cargo area also makes it the ideal vehicle for work related activities such as making deliveries or a courier service. You need not worry when your load exceeds your cargo space. The Astro has a large towing capacity to handle any excess load that would not fit the cargo area. This is where trailer hitches from CARiD come to the rescue. Trailer hitches provide an affordable way of transporting large loads to different destinations. Prior to purchasing a hitch you need to identify the limitations from your vehicle manufacturer’s manual. Only then can you properly select a trailer hitch for your ride. CARiD stocks a wide range of Chevy Astro trailer hitches to suit the tastes and preferences of different users. These include weight distribution hitches, weight carrying hitches, gooseneck among many others. The hitches sold at CARiD are designed by the best engineers in the country.

Chevy Astro trailer hitches are manufactured by the most reputable names in the business. These include CURT, DRAW-TITE, REESE and HIDDEN HITCH among others. Most of these brands allow the use of receiver mounted accessories. This makes it easier to haul your bicycle racks up the mountains for an exciting bicycle tour or race. Should you encounter a situation where your van does not have enough towing capacity, you have the option of upgrading your factory-installed receiver to a higher weight class. This will increase the capacity of your vehicle further. Most trailer hitches also come with weight distribution or equalizing hitches. This comes in handy to ensure the load is equitably distributed throughout to allow safe driving. The dealers also provide an installation kit, making it easy to install the hitch at home.
