Are you considering whether to add a receiver hitch to your vehicle? D&S Automotive offers a variety of hitches and towing accessories designed to meet the unique needs of your specific vehicle, truck, or trailer. A receiver hitch is the most common type of trailer hitch. It is bolted on the underside of your vehicle at the rear and provides a tube that can be used to attach a hitch accessory like a ball mount. Receiver hitches are divided into five classes defined by gross trailer weight, maximum weight capacity, receiver opening size, and several other factors. The team at D&S Automotive can help you determine which receiver hitch classification will be right for your vehicle depending on your towing and hauling needs.
Many vehicle owners find that receiver hitch installation is a practical and cost-effective investment. Once your vehicle is equipped for towing and hauling, you no longer need to borrow a relative’s truck or trailer to transport your outdoor recreational gear or equipment. You can increase your vehicle’s storage options and more easily haul a boat or cargo trailer holding bicycles on vacation—and those are just a few of many possibilities.
