Tip: Always remember to consult your owner’s manual for vehicle ratings and types of trailer hitches that match your vehicle towing capacity.
There are many types of hitch that are being used for towing a trailer, depending on your vehicle's capacity and its purpose. Receiver hitches are divided into five classes and each of them has a unique purpose as well as its size, set of capacities, and style. The higher the class number, the higher the capacity and the receiver tube that it has. (Always remember the tip above before choosing the types of trailer hitches intended for your vehicle.)
