About Honda Insight Trailer Hitches

So you went ahead and purchased yourself a boat, motorcycles, Jet Ski, bikes or any other large item? You also went out and got yourself a small, medium or large trailer that you want to use to move your items. Well, luckily, CARiD has the items you need to make this happen. Check out the Honda Insight trailer hitches at CARiD and choose the one that best suits your needs. It’s important to identify what your towing needs are before anything else. You won’t need the same type of trailer hitch to hook up a bike rack as you would need to hook up a large trailer full of horses. In fact, you can use a cargo carrier from CARiD to haul smaller items like bikes, clothes, boxes, food or small equipment. The Universal Hitch Mounted Cargo Carrier by CARiD has a weight capacity of 500 lbs and can haul many of your small items. It has a platform of 20x60 inches for easy stacking. Simply attach it to the trailer hitch and you’re on your way.

The reason you need to consider the items you’re hauling and their weight is because Insight trailer hitches have a different weight capacity for different classes. There are 5 different classes of trailer hitches that can be used for your trailer needs. The first is Class 1 hitches and has a weight capacity of 2000 lbs. Class 2 has a weight capacity of 3500 lbs and is good for small / medium trailers. Trailer hitches that are categorized under Class 3 have a weight capacity of 5000 lbs and can handle medium / large sized trailers. With a 10000 pound weight capacity, the Class 4 trailer hitches can haul large / extra large trailer hitches. Finally a Class 5 trailer hitch can haul trailers that are higher than 10,000 lbs.
