Tow Vehicle Trailer Secure Load

I’m ready to hit the road…. Not so quick. Knowing how to tow a trailer safely is more than proper driving techniques, load securement, and maintenance. All of that won’t matter if you have exceeded the maximum weight ratings of your tow vehicle, trailer or both!

Exceeding the weight ratings can add additional stress on your tow vehicle’s engine and drive-train, including your brakes and tires. Not only can this add to the chance of serious maintenance issues, not following the recommended weight ratings can lead to severe malfunctions, which can result in injury or even death.

Can your tow vehicle handle the trailer you want? What’s the maximum load your tow rig can handle?

We have created this interactive towing calculator & guide, so you never have to wonder if your tow vehicle is underrated or will that load exceed the maximum rating for your trailer.
