If you’re planning on adding a boat to your summer toy arsenal, you will also need to consider how you’re going to tow it. There are certain safety practices you should follow in order to tow a trailer behind your vehicle. The first one is verifying that your vehicle can handle the added weight.

You can check the towing capacity in the owner’s manual. It will give you specifics on loaded and tongue weight as well as the tow rating. It’s important to stay within the manufacturer’s guidelines on this point. Another precaution is a thorough inspection of the trailer itself. This should include the wheels, tires, and lug nuts. Making sure the hitch is appropriate for your vehicle and properly installed is also critical.

We would be happy to run a final inspection of your towing system. Bring it to our service center at WestStar Chrysler Jeep Dodge and let one of our knowledgeable technicians help keep you safe.
