Pontiac Grand Prix Trailer Hitches

Load distribution is very important when you are considering towing a trailer with your Pontiac Grand Prix. Therefore the best thing that you can do is visit the shop and check out the Pontiac Grand Prix Trailer Hitches options that are available. Getting the correct hitch will ensure that you get to your destination with everything still intact. Hitches are divided into several classes, with gooseneck and 5th wheel hitches being the most suitable for pickups and heavy trailers. Then we have the weight carrying hitches as well as the weight distributing hitches. In as much as you can put a hitch on any type of vehicle it is very important to keep to the limitation of the car according to the manufacturer. If you end up with a weight bearing hitch, it will take all the weight from the tongue of the trailer and place it at the suspension. When this happens, all the weight will be transferred to the back wheels of the car, making the front wheels lighter. Therefore it is best to settle for a weight distributing hitch will ensure that the weight gets evenly distributed.

A trailer that is not in the correct place or one that places a lot of weight on the hitch will end up swaying while the car is in motion. It might seem like a good idea to move the cargo so that the weight shifts within the trailer as a good solution but this is only temporary. This is why it is best if you set the towing car and the trailer correctly. The result will be a more stable car. Determine the correct combination of the trailer you are towing, your Pontiac Grand Prix weight capacity and the actual weight of the cargo that you will be transporting. Find your Pontiac’s maximum weight capacity by checking in the car manual or having it weighed at the truck scales.
