Ford Contour Trailer Hitches

About Ford Contour Trailer Hitches

While it is well-known and obvious that a trailer hitch is meant for towing, what is quite unfortunate is that a lot of people are unaware of how to use it in a correct manner. Having the right trailer enables your Ford Contour to tow various types of loads, which is definitely a huge plus. You can choose from a huge spread available at CARiD. It’s worth noting that Ford Contour trailer hitches from CARiD are custom made specifically for the Ford Contour and will therefore give the perfect size and weight compatibilities. The installation process should take about thirty minutes roughly for beginners and amateurs, and for those who are highly experienced, this task will probably be a 10-15 minutes affair.

For your trailer hitch to tow properly, you have to make sure that you have chosen the correct class of trailer for the intended weight that you want your trailer hitch to pull. You can take your pick from amongst different class hitches that range from class 1 to class 5 with 1 being the weakest and 5 being the strongest. If you want to tow heavy loads, then it is recommended that you should select the hitch versions that come with hitch balls. These are the most common type of trailer hitches available in the market and are also the most versatile. Not only can these be used on your Ford Contour but also on trucks, SUVs and cars of different makes and brands. If you want to tow heavy items such as industrial equipment, horse boxes or agricultural items then you need to opt for heavy duty Ford Contour trailer hitches. One of the many useful tips to keep in mind if you want to use your trailer hitch for towing would be to refrain from buying Gooseneck hitches as these are not intended for being used on cars.

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....
