You are starting the year off the right way and to that effect have just purchased a new Ford Edge. It sure will come in handy to help pull the horse trailer, boat, and the camper that everyone loves sleeping in. There is just one small problem though - there is no hitch on the rear of the vehicle. Before getting all stressed out think about the weight of each item that will be getting pulled, consider getting a trailer hitch. You need not call the dealership and ask what the towing capacity of your Ford Edge is. Just open the glove box and look at the manual that accompanied the vehicle. It will tell you the maximum weight which can be safely pulled with the beautiful Edge. Once the correct weight is known you need to decide which class of Ford Edge trailer hitches you should consider.
When looking at the various types of Ford Edge trailer hitches at CARiD, you will quickly discover there are five different classes into which this product is categorized. If pulling a camper, which usually weighs around 2,000 lbs, you need a Class I hitch. If the trailer is holding a power boat that weighs no more then 3,500 lbs then get a Class II hitch. For heavier loads, there are stronger hitches that can handle the weight with ease. Say you need to move some horses and everything weighs right around 5,000 lbs, then for this you will need a Class III hitch. For a big camper that does not exceed 10,000 lbs the hitch needs to be a Class IV. When traveling you might want to tow another car around that uses less gas. If it weighs in over 10,000 lbs then attaching a Class V hitch is in order. From Class I to Class V, CARiD has plenty of Ford Edge trailer hitches to meet your needs.

"The instructions were okay for the parts that went into the rear of the car. However, you're on your own in figuring out how to get power from the battery to the connector in the back of the car. The installation should have the option of mounting the 4-pin connector outside the car on the hitch."

"The CURT hitch looked like many other brands I shopped. However, the installation was a lot more difficult than mentioned in the instructions and online video. Definitely a two-person installation."

"The hitch to two weeks to arrive because it was not in stock. This was not a problem for me as I had plenty of time. The box it came in was pretty banged up, but the hitch itself was not damaged. So far, so good. I followed the installation instructions and installed the hitch in hour with the help of my brother. This went smoothly. I love the way the hitch looks on the vehicle. It fits perfectly! I would swear that it was original equipment. I am very happy with this purchase and would recommend this site and vendor to anyone looking for a quality hitch. "

"Purchased this item online with the expectations that I would have it on the car in a couple of hours. I followed the online video for installation and the hardest part ended up being placing the hitch on the frame with only two hands. With my wife's 2 minutes of help to hold up the hitch to the frame, we actually had the job done in less than an hour from start to finish. Great item."

"This is exactly what I needed to replace a lost lens on my 5th Wheel. Perfect fit/exact match to all the other lens. Looks like manufacturer original equipment."
