Heavy Duty Towing

Gooseneck Hitches & Weight Distribution Systems

Towing a heavy load behind your vehicle will never be as easy as we would like it to be. The extra weight back there, the longer braking distances, the extra workload while you're behind the wheel, all make a day's towing a longer day than one just driving the same distance. That's why we at CARiD are dedicated to improving your towing experience. We have plenty of hitches, accessories, convenience items, and upgrade items for your truck or car.

However, there is more than that. We have trailer brakes and trailer brake controllers. We have breakaway boxes to actuate the trailer brakes in the unlikely event of a hitch popping loose. Does your trailer have its own internal battery bank to run lights and accessories when you don't have shore power? We have ways to hook it up and charge from the tow vehicle battery when the engine is running, without ever discharging the tow vehicle's starter battery.

Got wide trailer, like a camper or car hauler? Check out some of CARiD's extendable towing mirrors. They'll add peripheral vision because they extend further out. They'll add some style to your truck while making it easy to keep track of traffic. If that trailer constantly sways back and forth down the road, look at our trailer sway controls to tame it. If you need more tongue weight to stabilize your trailer, look to CARiD for equalizing hitches to transfer some tongue weight forward to the tow vehicle's front wheels, and get your rear bumper back up where it belongs. We've got tongue jacks to hold up the front of the trailer in the lot, and alignment tools to make it easier to hook up when it's time to go.

This all starts, of course, with the choice of the best hitch. You may need a regular weight-bearing hitch, a load-leveling or equalizing hitch, or maybe something really heavy-duty like a gooseneck or 5th wheel mounted hitch. We have a bolt-in solution for just about any tow-capable vehicle on the market, so CARiD is the place to start looking for the right hitch. We have hitch ball mounts that drop the ball lower, that raise it higher, that move it back further to clear the car more easily, and even mounts that are adjustable so you can tow any trailer out there with the right hitch geometry. One adjustable mount can replace a bed full of different-sized fixed ball mounts.

Spruce up your hitch receiver with a hitch cover, and we have plenty of them in all colors and themes. A hitch cover will keep your receiver from filling with mud or ice and snow, too. Add some storage with a luggage rack or a storage box that plugs into the hitch receiver, the perfect thing for big trips or vacations when the car is jammed full. You can even take along a spare car with a tow dolly or even tow a grocery-getter behind your RV. And to make it easier to get into the bed, you can even add a folding step to the receiver.

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.

Fairly simple to install in my 2006 f150 crew cab took about 3 hrs to install but looks great glad I purchased.
