Questions to Ask When Purchasing Trailer Hitch Accessories

When you are on the market for towing accessories, there are several items you can purchase. You can shop online for used or discount items or go to a hardware store for a larger selection. If you are unsure on what you need, ask a store clerk for clarification. Before you start shopping here are a few questions to ask yourself or an industry professional.

  • What are you looking to tow?
    Before you get your trailer hitch setup, you need to determine what you plan to tow. You may be able to purchase an extender bar to handle larger loads that won't fit into the flatbed of your truck. You may be looking to tow your utility boat or bike rack. Racks and utility boats will have different accessories that are necessary.

  • What size is your trailer hitch?
    You may need to purchase an adapter for your trailer hitch. This depends on the size of the hitch and the receiver. A common hitch adapter will allow a 1-1/4" hitch receive a 2" insert.

  • What accessories do you currently have?
    Determine what you have and the items you will need. Perform a search to find a chain store that may offer hitch accessories at a discount. Look for used items to see if anything will fit your current setup. Ask a clerk what wiring or extender bars you may need. Save the receipt when you make the purchase. Test out the accessories on your vehicle to make sure it will work for what you need to tow.

    Trailer hitches can be sold as kits for self-install or they can be installed by the manufacturer. Many new trucks and SUVs come with hitches already installed and wired. Professional installation allows for wiring to be hidden inside the trailer hitch, and thus better provided. Gooseneck hitches are particularly hard to install, requiring drilling through the bed of the truck. However, they are essential for very large and heavy trailers such as larger campers or horse trailers.

    Used hitches are commonly sold, being removed from vehicles prior to sale or scrapping. Although this offers a significant discount, there is a certain luck involved in finding a hitch suitable to the customer's need. Adaptors and extenders may be used to allow for a different sized receiver and socket. Custom hitches are commonly sold.

    Installation of bike racks and roof racks is a common side line of hitch installation companies. They may also sell trailer accessories such as load chains and spare wheels. Hitch parts, including bars, bolts and wiring parts are also important. Hitch covers are particularly valuable when a trailer is used only seasonally, common with boat trailers and sometimes motorcycle trailers. Utility trailers generally require much smaller hitches, but all hitches are mounted on the vehicle by some means. Removing a hitch can take time.

    Trailer hitch installers may also advise on towing techniques and maximum tow weights. In some cases, they may recommend specific types and brands of trailers, especially utility trailers. They also do repairs, including replacing bars and redoing wiring. Although it is quite possible to install a simple hitch as a DIY project and kits are available online, it is likely that business for installers will remain good for the forseeable future.
