TOWING INFORMATION

GENERAL TOWING INFORMATION

When towing a trailer always remember to watch your speed. Beware that stopping distances are drastically different.

• Watch road conditions more carefully for pot holes or uneven roads that may cause the trailer to jerk or move laterally unexpectedly
• When towing on mountain passes or going under freeway overpasses be aware that the wind speed varies and could sway the trailer abruptly.
• Before leaving with the trailer in tow make sure that your trailer ball latch is down, and the pin is in place, and the ball is locked on, safety chains are hooked up in a criss-cross pattern, lights are working.
• Make sure furnace, A/C, water pump switch, water heater all are turned off. Make sure all windows, doors and compartments are latched.
• Make sure all interior items are secure for traveling.

Most SUV’s can only handle a 25′ or smaller trailer. Please check your owners guide for towing limits. We will try and fit your needs.

There is a flat $35.00 Tow Fee for bumper pull rentals. You are not charged any additional mileage.
