You need a hitch to hook your trailer to the car. The quality of the hitch is of paramount importance. You need to acquire a top grade hitch to avoid the prospect of a breakdown on the road. This is not only inconveniencing but also embarrassing. CARiD’s Volvo XC70 trailer hitches have stood the test of time and are famous for their durability and reliable performance. The kind of hitch you need will depend on the towing ability of your car. This information is available from the vehicle owners’ manual.

Some of the products on offer include weight-bearing hitches, weight-distribution hitches for smaller trailers and 5th wheel and Gooseneck hitches for the larger ones. Trailers typically transfer a portion of their weight to the trailer tongue. A weight-bearing hitch dumps the entire tongue weight on the rear axle making the back heavy and the front light. Steering the vehicle becomes a bit tricky. Further oncoming traffic is inconvenienced by the dazzling headlamps of your car. To avoid all this inconvenience, use an equalizing hitch to transfers a portion of the trailer weight to the front tires. This goes a long way in enhancing the stability of the vehicle. Volvo XC70 trailer hitches are resilient products, suitable for use in rough weather and tough terrain. They are fully welded products designed to bolt right onto your vehicle without much strain. The installation takes place in a matter of minutes. You may have it installed at the local repair shop or even better, install it yourself and catch all the fun in the process.
