About Ford F-350 Trailer Hitches

If you have a Ford F-350 and want to use it for the purpose of towing, then you should select a trailer hitch that would suit your purpose and needs in the best possible manner. There are many Ford F-350 trailer hitches available at CARiD and the onus of selecting an appropriate one lies upon the shoulders of the car owner or the one making a purchase. It pays to know your trailer hitches in this kind of situation but apart from being aware of your options, you should also know the year in which the Ford F-350 was manufactured. This will enable you to pick the trailer hitch that is compatible with your car model. At CARiD, you would discover that there is indeed a vast range of trailer hitches for Ford F-350 vehicles that were manufactured between 1980 and 2013.

The first kind of trailer hitch is the Class I hitch. This is meant for carrying very light tow loads weighing no more than two thousand pounds. Next in the sequence are Class II trailer hitches. These can carry loads of up to 3500 pounds, like a trailer boat measuring twelve feet in length. Class III Ford F-350 trailer hitches are more heavy-duty in comparison to the previous two as they can tow up to 5000 pounds of weight. Class IV trailer hitches generally come with brackets which play an essential role when carrying heavy tow loads of up to 7500 lbs. The brackets help to distribute the massive weight evenly. Class V trailer hitches are the ultimate in capacity because they can support up to fourteen thousand pounds. If you want something even stronger, go for Fifth Wheel trailer hitches as these can carry loads of up to twenty thousand pounds. Thus, these can be used for hauling trailer trailers, cars and even livestock trailers.

Depending on the vehicle, a properly installed and rated rear hitch can pull up to 18,000...
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....
