Dodge Dakota Trailer Hitches

Adding a trailer hitch to the back of your car allows you to tow a number of different loads. It’s important however that you choose the right trailer hitch for the task you wish to carry out. Taking a moment to look through the Dodge Dakota Trailer Hitches at CARiD will give you a chance to find one that will fit your needs perfectly. Each hitch has different qualities that make it better or worse for your task than another item. There are 5 classes of trailer hitches, the first class being able to haul up to 2,000 lbs and the fifth class being able to haul up to 10,000 lbs. Some trailer hitches to consider for your Dakota are the Square Trailer Hitch by Hidden Hitch and the Trailer Hitch by Warn Trans4men.

The Class 3 Trailer Hitch by Reese has a weight carrying capacity of 5,000 lbs. Its tongue weight is 500 lbs and it has a receiver tube size of 2”. A hitch of this size is capable of hauling small boats, jet skis, cargo, automobiles and other bigger items. The Dodge Dakota Rear Trailer Hitch Receiver by CURT is a great addition to your hitch. It means that the ball and its mount can be removed so that you can stow them when you’re not trailering. It also allows you to equalize hitches to transfer extra tongue weight to the front axle of your vehicle. If you’re more of an outdoor sports person, a trailer hitch can be used to load up bikes, camping gear, food and sports gear for a day in the woods or a day on the field. Businesses can also use them when moving cargo from point A to point B. Simply put the trailer hitch onto your Dodge Dakota, grab the right receiver, hitch your cargo carrier onto the car and be on your way.

There are four major types of trailer hitches, regardless of whether they are installed at the factory or added on afterward. A hitch may simply have a bar sticking out past the bumper with a ball mounted to it. Or there may be a square receiver that takes a ball mount that slides into it. In all cases, there are different weight ratings.
When you’re setting up your trailer with a new tow vehicle, several things need to be considered: the ball mount and ball must be rated to take the weight, and the ball has to be at the right height. Once you have determined the proper weight class, choose a ball mount of a high enough class for your trailer, and set up your ball mount and ball for proper towing....
