When towing a trailer using your Pontiac Ventura and you notice that your headlights are blinding oncoming cars, it means that all the weight of your trailer has been shifted to the back wheels of the car. This might also make steering a bit tricky while in motion. This is a problem that can be avoided by getting the most appropriate Pontiac Ventura trailer hitches from CARiD. For a first timer, it is good to be aware that the hitches are divided into different categories. There are weight distributing hitches, weight bearing hitches, gooseneck hitches and 5th wheel hitches. Gooseneck and 5th wheel hitches are more suitable for heavier trailers. A weight distributing hitch usually has spring bars that shift some of the weight onto the front tires as well. A weight bearing hitch takes the mass of the trailers tongue which then goes straight on the suspension causing a shift in weight. Once you understand this, then you can go ahead and make an informed decision based on your Pontiac’s towing capacity and the size of trailer you’re using.
The weight of the trailer is only supposed to put about 10% of all its weight on the tongue. This weight is what most cars would handle while on the move. If the trailer puts on more weight that this, then this will in turn place that weight on the back wheels of your Ventura. It will not be easy to steer the car when this happens because your front wheels will be lighter. With an equalizing hitch, you will not have this kind of problem and you will not end up endangering the lives of oncoming drivers. Go through the options available at CARiD and choose the trailer hitch that best suits your towing needs.

"Before a camping trip and under a deadline to get my trailer lights ready without splicing wires, I turned to CARiD, because the big box stores couldn't get the part in time for my Pontiac Aztek. CARiD stepped up with great customer service and value. The product installed easily and saved me from having to cut holes in the moldings of my vehicle and splice wires."
