Ford Escort Trailer Hitches

    About Ford Escort Trailer Hitches


    It does not matter if you are using a small car or a large truck for pulling trailers because they all have one thing in common, namely weight distribution. If pulling too much weight or if the weight on the trailer is not evenly distributed over each axle then it could be a disaster. Ford Escort trailer hitches can be hard to pull not to mention you will not have much control over it when zipping down the open highway. Always make sure your Escort is pulling a trailer that is not over the requirements on the weight. Have you ever driven a vehicle and wondered if they must be having some large boulders in the trunk? The trunk looks like it can almost touch the ground while the front of the car looks like it is going to leave the pavement. This is the same way your car will look if the weight of the trailer is too much. When this happens the steering becomes harder to handle not to mention the brakes will struggle to get everything stopped properly.

    There are actually models that are called weight distributing but, these are for the monster loads usually pulled by trucks. With the Ford Escort trailer hitches you will just need to make sure the weight is evenly distributed since this is not a truck that can handle a monster load. A very important factor to know before deciding which hitch to purchase is the towing maximum your car can handle. It is also important to know the tongue weight capacity of the car. The easiest place to obtain this information is in your car’s owner manual. If you no longer have this at hand, then the local dealership can find out for you. Once you’ve decided to buy one, rest assured that there are plenty of hitches to choose from at CARiD.

    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. Here's how you do that.

    "Directions were very straight forward and easy to follow. Hitch is simple and somewhat hidden. Maybe the very showy Hidden Hitch decal is not needed and is also not very Hidden. Not sure why we needed to cut the exhaust shield in half, but it may have had some reason. Good installation of quality hitch."

    "I have been looking at these for a while, and very glad I have one now. First day at work and it did its job, prevented another ding on my bumper and shows no signs of the hit on the bar. Very tough bar... Love it!"
