Safe Towing Practices

Now that warm weather is within sight, you may be considering purchasing that boat you’ve had your eye on. Before you go too far in the process, it’s a good idea to investigate a few preliminary safety concerns. The first is determining what the maximum load weight is that your vehicle can safely tow.

You can find load capacity information in your owner’s manual. It’s recommended to adhere to their weight limit guidelines to avoid any future problems. Once that step’s out of the way, the next is fitting the bumper with the appropriate tow hitch. It will need to be designated to fit your vehicle’s bumper, and it also needs to be able to carry the weight capacity. Once you’ve gotten to the point of purchasing the boat and trailer, you should thoroughly inspect the trailer to make sure it’s safe, and that includes the lug nuts, tires, and wheels.

We would be happy to assist you with setting up and inspecting your tow package. Don’t hesitate to stop in to Show Low Ford Inc. in Show Low, AZ and speak with a knowledgeable member of our service team.
