    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.

    Trailer lights always seem to be out, or intermittent, or making the turn signals blink too fast. It’s a non-stop case of whack-a-mole to keep your trailer lit up properly, here’s some advice on how to reduce your maintenance investment. There are as many as seven electrical circuits in the standard trailer plug, but don't assume that just because your trailer has a plug all is good.

    "Very impressed with CARiD, as my hitch was delivered in 3 days. No problems there. The hitch has excellent quality and nice powder coat finish. But the actual installation... Well, don't try to do it yourself unless you can raise the car high enough to get adequate work room. I took it to my mechanic, and even on the hoist, it took over an hour. But it's on now and solid with no problems. Very happy when it was all complete. Using it for a bike carrier, Yakima, so this hitch is going to be great. Very happy with CURT hitch."

    "Arrived quickly. Easy to install, but it had over an inch of play between the frame and mounting points and I felt that tightening the bolt could have torn the frame, so I put thick washers between the hitch and the frame and still had a lot of space that the frame had to bend and fill. The hitch should have been made at least 3/8 inch wider to limit this frame stress. Also, the mounting plates should have been wrapped so they both did not land up tearing thorough the cardboard box and have the paint chipped off so I had to repaint them before mounting the hitch.

    "I have purchased several other items from CARiD in the past. They have all been top quality, as is this hitch cover. It installs easily and is made of stainless steel, so it won't corrode. It makes a nice appearance, looks like factory OEM equipment. "
