Honda Odyssey Trailer Hitches

At one point in time, moving cargo could only be done only with large trucks. Now however, it can be done with any car as long as you have the right trailer hitches in place. With a few minutes of your time, you can browse through Honda Odyssey trailer hitches at CARiD to find the one that has the strength and qualities that you need. For instance, two great options are the Trailer Hitch by Draw-Tite and Trailer Hitch by Hidden Hitch. Each hitch belongs to a particular class. Trailers that are small don’t need a higher class trailer hitch in order to haul them. In fact you can use a simple Class 1 or Class 2 trailer hitch. Knowing the weight of the cargo that you’re hauling is extremely important in picking out the right trailer hitch. For example, heavy duty trailer hitches are required for loads that are heavier than most, like industrial equipment, hauling horse boxes or moving a large boat.

For small trailers, bike racks or even cargo carriers like the Universal Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier, a Class 1 trailer hitch is more than enough. This cargo carrier can hold up to 500 lbs and has a platform of 20x60 inches for easy stacking. Class 1 trailer hitches have a weight capacity of 2000 lbs. For small to medium sized trailers, a Class 2 hitch is appropriate. Class 2 hitches have a weight capacity of 3500 lbs. Class 3 hitches can handle up to 5000 lbs of weight. This type is great for medium sized trailers. Large trailers can be handled with a Class 4 hitch which has a capacity of 10,000 lbs. The final class is a Class 5 which handles extra large trailers with a weight over 10,000 lbs. These 5 classes are how trailer hitches are categorized. Once you know the total weight of your cargo you can then choose the right Odyssey trailer hitch at CARiD.

Guides & Articles
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.
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....
