Pontiac Torrent Trailer Hitches
Enough emphasis cannot be placed on how important it is to get the correct hitch for the trailer that you want to tow. Although it is now easy to choose from a wide variety of the Pontiac Torrent trailer hitches that are available at CARiD, you should also be aware of how each hitch works. The hitches are divided into several categories. There are gooseneck and 5th wheel hitches. These are mostly suitable for towing heavy trailers. Then there are weight carrying hitches and finally weight distributing hitches. As long as you follow the limitations that have been set by your car manufacturer, you can put any hitch on your Torrent. You should however keep in mind that only a weight distributing hitch will transfer the weight evenly to all the wheels of the car because it has spring bars. This is not the case with a weight bearing hitch because it will take the mass of the trailer tongue and place it at the suspension, making the front tires of the car lighter.
The reason as to why gooseneck and 5th wheel are the most preferred hitches for heavy trailers and pick ups is because they take all the weight of the trailer and place it on the real axle, which in turn makes it easy to drive in crosswinds. This way, the trailer stays on course and will not sway or steer the bumper from behind. Ensure that you first understand how each hitch works first before making any final decisions to purchase. The one thing that you will be assured of at the shop is the quality and durability of the hitches availed. Given that each trailer hitch comes with a lifetime warranty, you can be assured that you are dealing with only the best when you buy a Pontiac Torrent trailer hitch from CARiD.
