Ford Freestar Trailer Hitches

    About Ford Freestar Trailer Hitches


    Do you know what it is like to travel on the highway with a trailer hitched to your Ford Freestar? Judging by the looks of envy that are shot to such drivers, it would only be fair to come to the conclusion that it is a great feeling provided the vehicle and the trailer complement each other in every way. To ensure that your vehicle and its trailer hitch are like a marriage made in heaven, it is imperative to opt for Ford Freestar trailer hitches as per your Freestar’s weight criterion. Every trailer has an upper limit where weight is concerned and this needs to be matched with the towing capability of the vehicle. After all, there is no point in buying a trailer that is too heavy for the vehicle to tow or so light that there is always the danger of it toppling over in the middle of the road.

    Representatives at CARiD will introduce you to the different classes of Ford Freestar hitches segregated as per the weight that they can carry. Lowest amongst then is the Class 1 hitch and because it is meant to carry only lighter things, it is colloquially termed a lightweight hitch. While 2000 pounds is the maximum that anyone can load as regards Class 1 category, the figure rises to 3500 with a Class 2 hitch. Ford Freestar trailer hitches of Class 3 type are designed to carry up to 5000 pounds and those in Class 4 boast of a capacity of 12000 pounds. In each case, the weight bearing capacity of the tow bar varies as per the weight and it is usually ten percent of the total weight. Class 3 and Class 4 hitches have a much higher weight limit, but the vehicle’s weight capacity should still be the final determinant of how much weight you can carry on the trailer.

    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!"
