Mazda 6 Trailer Hitches

The Mazda 6 is a stylishly designed vehicle with head-turning sporty looks. The car’s cabin is edgy and spacious, providing great comfort as you cruise down the freeway. It has nimble handling potential, responding to the lightest touch of a button. Its superb engine makes towing a trailer an easy task. With a trailer behind you, all your hauling needs are easily settled. All you require is a Mazda 6 trailer hitch from CARiD and you are ready to go. CARiD’s products are synonymous with top quality. They are sourced from the most reputable brands in the country. They are designed by professional engineers using sophisticated techniques to ensure precise fitment and safety. Your choice of trailer and hitch will depend on your car’s towing capacity. This information is readily available on your owner’s manual. You also need to consider load distribution within the trailer. Improper weight distribution is the primary cause of many trailer related incidents on the road.

Trailers typically transfer 10% of their trailer weight onto the tongue. A weight-bearing hitch transfers the total tongue weight on the rear axle making the back heavy and the front tires light on the road. This makes steering a bit tricky. You also run the risk of blinding oncoming traffic with your headlamps. To prevent all this, use an equalizing hitch to transfer some of the weight to the front axle, thereby enhancing stability on the road. Alternatively, you may opt to use a weight-distribution hitch equipped with a spring bar mechanism to transfer some weight to the front tires. Mazda 6 trailer hitches are resilient, all-weather equipment. They are also not susceptible to rusting. Each purchase comes with an instruction manual to guide you through the process of installation. CARiD also provides support in form of accessories to aid in the successful installation and operation of the hitch.
