The size and strength of the Chevy Kodiak makes it the perfect choice for business operations. Manufacturers of retail products use the Kodiak for distribution services. It has a strong reputation in the cargo haulage arena. The Kodiak has a strong towing capacity. Its powerful engine can definitely handle a trailer attached to it. There are many different types of trailer hitches on the market but few can match the quality of the products carried by CARiD. CARiD stocks Chevy Kodiak trailer hitches from the most reputable brands in the business. Brand names such as Curt, Reese and Draw-Tite are associated with top grade merchandise. These products are designed by professional engineers using techniques that guarantee precision and safety. Manufacturers then use high-grade materials to manufacture the trailer hitches. For the Kodiak, consider using the gooseneck or 5th wheel trailer hitches. These hitches stabilize the vehicle and prevent the trailer from attempting to steer the truck from the rear. These trailer hitches also help the rig appear much shorter because a part of the trailer rests above the truck bed.

Weight distribution is a core issue when installing trailer hitches. Insufficient tongue weight is the primary cause of trailer swaying. You need to ensure that the load is properly balanced to ensure safe driving. Trailer hitches are easy to install. They come with an instruction manual, which gives detailed guidelines about the process. With the right tools, installation should take no more than half an hour. If you are not up to the task, have a technician from your local repair shop install it for you. Chevy Kodiak trailer hitches come with a limited nation-wide warranty against defects in material quality and workmanship. CARiD also stocks other items that aid in the successful installation of trailer hitch. These include hitch cloths, electrical connectors and other components.

      Towing Mirrors | The Aftermarket Solution To Best Vision When Trailering
      Whether you're towing a trailer, boat, RV, or other equipment, keeping an eye on the road behind you becomes a challenge. Without proper side mirrors mounted further outboard, changing lanes or backing up requires a huge leap of faith - along with worry about just how high your insurance deductible is for certain types of incidents.

      Trailer Breakaway Kits Stop The Trailer If It Breaks Loose
      Sometimes when towing a trailer, it’s hard not to think about all the things that can go wrong – especially worst-case scenarios such as the trailer breaking free from your vehicle and becoming a “runaway” that puts property and life at risk. You start to worry if, when you lowered the trailer hitch down onto the ball, the locking tongue actually secured in place under the ball or did it get pushed up into the ball cavity on the hitch? This mishap can happen to the most of experienced towers because things look normal to the eye, and the coupler will even lock in place as if it’s properly attached. Or, maybe the nut on the tow ball has been slowly backing itself off on a long trip (lock washers have a less-than-infinite life span).

      Trailer Tool Boxes Provide Extra Lockable Space Where You Need It
      When you carry a boat, ATV, or other equipment on a trailer regularly, you’re going to need to bring a lot of gear and equipment along for the variety of tasks inevitably required during the loading or unloading process. First, there are tie-down straps, hooks, bungee cords, locks, safety chains, gloves, and a flashlight. Then, then there’s assorted hand tools you may need in a pinch like wrenches, hammers, screwdrivers, pry bars, and other essentials – because flat tires and burned out bulbs need to be changed immediately. Not to mention other motor oils, lubricants, and fluids no one wants to be caught without. Whether all this stuff is loose or in a portable container, it’s going to take up a lot of space in the cargo area of your vehicle. And if you don’t want to leave it in your car all the time, there’s the hassle of lugging it back and forth to your garage or somewhere else.

      Trailer Winches Provide the Muscle When Loading Your Trailer
      When looking for a trailer winch, it is very important to remember that they are rated by weight capacity. Unless specified otherwise, the weight rating for a trailer winch is the amount of weight it can pull when loading a boat, ATV, or other vehicle onto a trailer – not what it can lift. Compared to an off-road winch, the load object is free to roll or float, and is therefore considered a rolling load. The trailer winch does not need to work as hard as it would, for example, if it were trying to free a Jeep stuck in the woods.

      Replace Your Worn or Wrong-Sized Trailer Coupler
      A coupler is the metal piece that physically connects your trailer to the tow vehicle. Once the coupler is permanently bolted or welded to your trailer's frame rail(s) at the front (this is the "tongue" area), it then fits over the round ball on the trailer hitch attached to your vehicle. Levers of various designs on the coupler clamp around the round ball tightly enough to prevent it from disconnecting, but they also allow just the right amount of play for proper pivoting around turns and over road undulations.

      Your Trailer Will Stop Straight & True With Replacement Brakes
      If your trailer has sat for a length of time without being used, things may look alright on the outside to the naked eye. However, odds are your trailer’s brake components and wheel bearings are far more deteriorated than you think, because moisture and corrosion really get a foothold when metal parts sit motionless out in the elements. That goes double if the trailer is backed into salt water during boat loading and unloading. Moving brake parts will rust and seize; wheel bearings will lose their grease and they too will corrode. When these parts are compromised, the risk of accidents increases, or the trailer simply becomes unusable. Worn or rusty brakes can cause the trailer to pull, lose braking power, or completely lose control if a wheel seizes or comes off.

      Brake Controllers Are A Necessity To Slow Down Your Trailer
      This is the year you got serious about your trailering set-up. You've treated yourself to a new, top-of-the-line pickup truck with a tow rating high enough to pull your house off its foundation if necessary. You used your annual bonus to get that bigger boat you had promised yourself (with your spouse's blessing, of course). The boat dealer told you that you could use the truck to pull that new trailer "with no problem". What he did not tell you is that you still need to figure out a way to operate the trailer's brakes. That is done with a brake controller. The good news is, we have a great selection of them, and we will even show you how easy they are to install.

      Connect Your Car Lights To Your Trailer Lights The Easy Way
      When it comes to "electricity", many people are either scared silly of it, or run the other way rather than try to learn about it. Since it is a powerful force, it certainly is something to be respected. For us vehicle owners, perhaps we understand that our cars and trucks have a battery under the hood that needs occasional replacement, and light bulbs that may burn out after several years. Beyond that, many of us are ready to leave any electrical work to the "experts".

      Secure Your Trailer Load With Quality Tie-Down Straps
      There are many types of tie-down straps for securing a variety of objects - whether they're being hauled on a trailer, in a van, or simply tied to a bike rack. Skipping the step of properly tying down your load is a no-no, plain and simple. Police will cite you for endangering public safety on public roads, and the well-being of your cargo is no longer under your control. Instead, it's at the mercy of the laws of physics and other such things that are unpredictable, potentially leading to loss of your personal property or worse.

      Hitch Mounted Cargo Carriers Let You Carry More Stuff
      Trailer hitches are not just for pulling trailers. At CARiD, we have seen more than our fair share of customers who have purchased a receiver hitch even though they do not own a trailer and never intend to own a trailer. We have heard from customers who have purchased a used vehicle with a trailer hitch installed, not intending to ever use it. That is, until they discovered that hitches have multiple uses. In this article, we are going to demonstrate how convenient and flexible receiver hitches are when they are utilized as cargo carriers.

      Hitch Steps Give You A Leg Up!
      Give up? Taken as a whole, these statements bring out the realization that more and more Americans are driving what used to be called "trucks", and, there is a growing need to be able to reach the roofs of these trucks, whether it's to access the cargo box, brush off last night's snow, or just to wash the vehicle.

      Towing Mirrors Allow You To See Behind Your Trailer
      If you have recently purchased a new full-size truck with the intention of pressing it into regular trailering service, you most likely sprung for the vehicle manufacturer's "Towing Package". The truck makers have woken up to the fact that they were losing millions of dollars in business to the aftermarket. One sales channel which has been popular has been towing. Following that age-old adage "if you can't beat them, join them", the vehicle manufacturers want you to buy your trailer hitch and all the accompanying accessories directly from them. This will likely include large "towing" mirrors which extend a few inches further from the truck body, helping you to see what's behind that horse trailer you're pulling.

      Hitch Covers Add Style and Protect Your Investment
      If you have several hundred dollars invested in a receiver-type trailer hitch, there is one more item we want you to consider adding to the purchase. Yes, you have spent a considerable amount of money already, because in addition to the hitch, you bought a ball mount, trailer ball, hitch pin, and electrical wiring. Presuming that this is your first experience with a rear hitch, we feel obligated to point out to you that the ball mount and ball should not be left in the receiver tube all the time!

      Front Hitches: Multiple Uses for Your SUV or Truck
      Trailer hitches, properly called receiver hitches, are all the rage in our truck-obsessed society. When 50% of the new vehicle purchases in the USA today are some kind of pickup truck, SUV, or minivan, the addition of a hitch at the rear of the vehicle makes perfect sense. Depending on the vehicle, a properly installed and rated rear hitch can pull up to 18,000 pounds. There certainly are enough people engaged in their hobbies of horse trailering, boating, or camping, to make use of a truck and hitch. By the way, they are called "receiver hitches" because they accept, or receive, a ball mount and hitch ball which slides into the assembly. That ball mount can conveniently be removed and stowed when not in use.

      Everything You Want to Know About Trailer Hitches
      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.

      Choosing Hitch Balls and Ball Mounts
      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. Here's how you do that.

There are as many as seven electrical circuits in the standard trailer plug, but don't assume that just because your trailer has a plug all is good.

    Best Hitches Made
    This hitch replaced an old one I had to put a bolt through to keep it secure. It had come loose once but I was lucky the safety chains kept it with the truck but the big dent still remains in the fender. Bulldog hitches are simple and I no longer worry about whether the trailer is securely attached to my vehicle. I just cut the old welds, ground everything, smooth, welded the Bulldog in place, added some spray primer, (the whole trailer will get paint when it warms up), and I am ready to roll. Both my trailers have been modified with Bulldog hitches.
