Jaguar XK-Type Trailer Hitches

It may be true that using trailers and towing them behind the Jaguar XK-Type is indeed convenient. One factor pertaining to this arrangement is that safety, not just of the two vehicles in succession but those around as well, should always be maintained. In order to ensure that accidents are limited to as minimum a level as possible, every state has laws in place which are applicable to trailer hitches and the vehicles connected by them. Jaguar XK-type trailer hitches enjoy soaring popularity in this regard because they are versatile enough to tow all kinds of trailers behind a minivan, a car or a SUV. Therefore, whether you have an open trailer, enclosed trailer, boat trailer or a flatbed, you can easily tow it behind your car safely as long as you follow all the rules. As per the regulations, only trailers which conform to the pulling capacity of the main vehicle should be used and an appropriate hitch should be in place to do the job.

One of the dangers that is omnipresent while using trailer hitches is that if the two vehicles are separated then chances of an accident occurring are increased manifold. This can be avoided by selecting a Jaguar XK-type trailer hitch that is equipped with a stand-alone braking system with a switch located within the main vehicle. Thus, in case the trailer is observed as going wayward or there is a slight hint of imbalance, you as the driver should immediately use the switch for controlling the trailer instead of grounding the main vehicle to a dead halt. For the trailer hitch to perform at its optimum best, the onus is on you as the user to ensure that the tires on both the XK-Type and the trailer you’re hauling are of the same size and that the items being carried are evenly distributed and securely tied with a sturdy string.

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....
