Ford Taurus Trailer Hitches

    About Ford Taurus Trailer Hitches


    CARiD stocks a wide variety of Ford Taurus trailer hitches. When shopping for a Ford Taurus trailer hitch, you will quickly see that there are five main types and they each fall into a particular class. There is even equipment that can be purchased to go with the hitches and while some of it is mandatory, much of it is optional too. The equipment helps to render the towing safer so you can brake more easily and not have to worry about a lot of swaying. One thing you will need to know is the gross trailer weight. This means that if you are pulling a small camper you need to know the weight of the camper before things are put into it. To be aware of this weight you will have to adjust items that are to be placed inside like clothes, pots and pans and so on. On adding up all this the total weight of the camper can be adjudged.

    Next is the tongue weight of the load. This is how much weight will be on the ball of the hitch. A good rule of thumb to remember is whatever the total weight of the trailer is around 10 percent of it will be on the tongue. Ford Taurus trailer hitches allow you to change the weight of the tongue. An interesting fact to keep in mind is the weight of the trailer. When loading it, make note of where the axle is. As you load heavier items to the front of the axle the weight of the tongue increases. In order to lessen the weight on the tongue, move some items to the rear of the axle. No matter what kind of trailer is being pulled you will need to make sure the Taurus can handle it. In other words you would not want to try pulling a yacht (too heavy) with the car since there would be the possibility of damaging it.

    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.

    "I'm so appreciative for this item being made. I'm avionics by trade. I have the skill and tools to make a wire harness myself. I'd be a fool to do it. This is easy and saves so much time. Very much worth the money."

    "Was well packaged. Cut the box into 2 long sections and lay them flat before you take the paper off the hitch. That way you have a scratch free surface lay it on, and a smooth surface for you to lay on. Now go inside, sit down, and watch the youtube video on this several times. Head on back out and do it. It's not that hard. Since I didn't have a helper, I left the muffler on to help support a side until I started the bolt on the other. It's a good product."
