Towing & Hitches

Trailer hitches are major parts of towing systems that give a vehicle the ability to hit the road with that boat, camper, or any other kind of trailer. However, a tow hitch alone won't enable your vehicle to tow – you'll need additional components such as a trailer ball and ball mount, electrical parts, etc. Before you hitch your trailer up, make sure your vehicle can handle the load. The towing capacity can be found in your owner’s manual and the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) on a label on the door jamb, and for all your towing gear look nowhere else but right here. Our digital shelves are packed with hitches for trucks, cars, and SUVs, including universal trailer hitches, receiver hitches, trailer jacks, and more to make trailer towing safe and ease the installation of towing accessories.

If your vehicle doesn't have a tow package installed and all you have on your car, truck, or SUV for a secure coupling is a ball mounted on a hole in your rear bumper, that’s not going to cut it for towing most trailers. We can set you up with a trailer hitch that mounts to your vehicle’s frame, from Class I towing hitches that can tow up to a 2,000 lb. trailer all the way up to Class V hitches that can tow trailers up to 20,000 lbs. We also have the weight distribution hitches and sway control devices to distribute the tongue load and reduce sway caused by wind.

A receiver hitch enables you to do far more than just tow ordinary trailers. We offer tow hooks and tow rings that slide right into the receiver and allow you to pull with a strap, and tow bars that enable you to tow another vehicle. We also have towing accessories like hitch-mounted cargo carriers that can increase your vehicle’s carrying capacity, and hitch-mount bike racks that can carry up to 5 bicycles, including models that swing away for access to the tailgate. Give yourself an assist into the truck bed or to the luggage rack with a hitch step, and when not in use, protect the inside of the receiver with a hitch cover.

Part of towing a trailer safely and legally means having working lights. We have all the wiring harnesses and connectors for sale, as well as all types of trailer lights, including fixtures with vibration resistant LEDs. All but the smallest trailers need trailer brakes for safe operation, and they’re legally required in many areas. Our brake controllers will apply the brakes evenly, for shorter stopping distances. If the trailer should accidentally become disconnected from the vehicle, we have breakaway kits to apply the trailer brakes. And for hitch locks, safety chains, and more, check out our selection of hitch accessories. So, for owners of vehicles that don't have a factory towing package, we have every piece of equipment to enable towing capabilities, from trailer hitches to wiring harnesses!
