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.

If you are using your "daily driver" car or truck for occasional towing duty, you are looking for that ideal sweet spot where the weekday commute is comfortable and quiet, and the weekend trailering feels solid and secure. 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...
