A hitch itself won't get you far without a hitch receiver that is usually mounted to the tow vehicle. Next comes a ball mount, which is a separate assembly sliding into the receiver. Without the ball mount, the trailer/boat you're towing will stick way up in the air. A hitch ball is another important accessory locking your load in place. The ball mount and hitch ball have to be rated to take the weight, while the ball has also to be at the right height.

Okay, you have your hitch receiver and ball mount with a hitch ball already in place. But where is a coupler that will hitch your trailer to the vehicle? Technically, the coupler is the trailer's part but it's also considered to be a hitch accessory. Like ball mounts and hitch balls, couplers are rated by their weight capacity. Once the coupler is resting on the hitch ball, a spring-loaded latch locks the trailer to the tow vehicle. But the more mechanisms keep the vehicle and the load secure, the better. Therefore, a hitch lock is the next useful hitch accessory on our list. A lock will help you keep your trailer or camper securely fastened for towing.

If you're going to pull loads heavier than 3,000 pounds, you'll want to install a weight distribution system. As the name implies, it will distribute the weight more evenly across the axles of your trailer and tow vehicle, ensuring increased control over your steering and braking systems. Well, don't you appreciate these things most of all? If you've never used a trailer jack, then you've missed a lot. The jack is actually mounted to the trailer, not the hitch, and it makes the hitching process easier and safer.

Sliding a hitch step into your hitch receiver will help you get to the top of your vehicle without needless efforts. We have a wide selection of heavy-duty hitch steps providing a slip resistant surface. If not used, the steps fold up. When you're not towing anything, you can simply protect your hitch receiver from dirt, grime, and other contaminants. How? By adding one of our premium hitch covers that are also stylish add-ons offering a personal touch to your vehicle's rear.
