Toyota Tundra Trailer Hitches

Load distribution is very important when towing a trailer on your Toyota Tundra. For weight to be evenly distributed, you need a high quality trailer hitch, which you can’t find in the mass market. Shop at CARiD and enjoy hosing from a range of superior quality, custom Toyota Tundra Trailer Hitches. Getting the correct hitch will ensure that you get to your destination with everything still intact. Hitches are divided into several classes. Gooseneck and 5th wheel hitch are more suitable for heavy trailers and are designed to support heavy weights. Then we have weight carrying hitches as well as weight distributing hitches. In as much as you can hook any hitch to your Tundra, it is very important to observe the limitations 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 to 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 the seemingly positive impact this has is temporary. Setting the towing car and the trailer correctly right from the start will guarantee more stability. What you will be required to do is to go to the truck scales so that you can determine the correct combination of the trailer you are towing and your Toyota Tundra in light of the actual weight of the cargo that you will be transporting.

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.
When you’re setting up your trailer with a new tow vehicle, several things need to be considered: the ball mount and ball must be rated to take the weight, and the ball has to be at the right height. Once you have determined the proper weight class, choose a ball mount of a high enough class for your trailer, and set up your ball mount and ball for proper towing....

My Tundra needs a longer hitch pin than most trucks. I found this one on CARiD. The sales rep was very helpful. The pin installs easily and looks great. The best part is that it uses the trucks key so no more looking for they separate lock key. I did have a problem with it after 2 months. I contacted CARiD and they replaced it since it has a lifetime guarantee. So far so good with the new one.
