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.

In other words, you don't want to vehicle to feel too "stiff" during the week, nor do you want it to ride "soft" when pulling a trailer.
This is the year you got serious about your trailering set-up. You've treated yourself to a new, top-of-the-line pickup truck with a tow rating high enough to pull your house off its foundation if necessary. You used your annual bonus to get that bigger boat you had promised yourself (with your spouse's blessing, of course). The boat dealer told you that you could...
When it comes to "electricity", many people are either scared silly of it, or run the other way rather than try to learn about it. Since it is a powerful force, it certainly is something to be respected. For us vehicle owners, perhaps we understand that our cars and trucks have a battery under the hood that needs occasional replacement, and light bulbs that may...
