The Perfect Tow Bar Hitch

Understanding how to tow your caravan or trailer correctly is a key part of sourcing the right kind of towing materials.

Necessary terminology for towing:

GTW – gross trailer weight

This figure is the total weight of your trailer or caravan when fully loaded.

TW – tongue weight

This refers to the downward force that is exerted on the hitch ball by the coupler. The tongue weight is going to vary depending on where the load is in relation to the trailer axle. 

WC – weight carrying

The total weight of both the trailer and your cargo. Never exceed the weight capacity of your trailer hitch.

WD – weight distributing

Used to balance cargo between the front and rear wheels, ensuring better steering, braking and level riding.

Choosing the right hitch for your van, trailer or tow is a matter of:

  1. Checking the towing capacity
  2. Figuring out the gross trailer weight of your tow
  3. Choose the right class hitch and towbar tongue for your vehicle


Safety Tips

Make sure you stay safe on the roads by following these simple tips:

  • Never tow a greater GTW trailer than the vehicle you are towing with. You may damage your transmission and frame, and void any manufacturers warranties
  • A higher class of hitch does not improve the tow capacity of your vehicle. Make sure you choose the right kind of towbar tongue for your vehicle
  • Reversing is tough. Make sure you practice and leave yourself PLENTY of room for error
  • Extra weight in your van or trailer can mean that your car isn’t going to be as responsive as usual, so be aware of this if climbing. When going downhill, make sure you choose the gear you would use to climb that hill (even in an auto vehicle) – and do it before you hit the down-grade, not when your brakes are smoking and you’re picking up speed!
  • Avoid braking hard and jack-knifing by ensuring you are employing the correct following distance. Always give yourself a lot more than you think you need to ensure safety
