Trailer hitches are what make towing things possible. Whether you’re towing construction equipment to the job site or embarking on a family vacation to the Great Lakes with your brand new camper, the simple reality is that you can’t take along large cargo without an adequate towing vehicle and proper hitch.
The Issue With Using Improper Towing Equipment
The problem with towing heavy loads is that drivers often don’t use the right towing equipment. To make matters more complicated, they’re also inexperienced at driving with a trailer attached to their vehicle, often leading to headache-inducing accidents that were entirely avoidable. It’s important to know not only what type of trailer hitch is best for your vehicle and type of trailer that you’re towing, but also how to use it and secure it, safety precautions to take, and not cheaping out on low-quality parts.

5th wheel trailer hitches can tow a lot of weight. We take our 5th wheel hitches seriously (as we do with all of our products), so you’re only going to find brands that you know and trust, complete with accurate information about each product.
Take, for example, our B&W Companion 20k 5th Wheel Hitch. It’s rated up to 20,000 lbs and attaches directly to a Turnoverball under-bed mounting system, offering what many consider to be one of the smoothest rides on the road for a trailer hitch.
Gooseneck trailer hitches are one of the most common types of hitches seen on the road. They utilize a hitch ball that locks straight into place, which differs from 5th wheel hitches that employ a wheel-shaped plate that secures to the frame of your truck. Gooseneck trailer hitches are affordable, offer towing capacity up to 30,000 lbs, and also provide a superior turning radius and sharp cornering (note: we do not recommend drifting with your trailer!).
You’re not likely to see a full-blown gooseneck or 5th wheel trailer hitch on a smaller, lighter vehicle such as a sedan, station wagon, or light SUV, but you’ve probably seen your fair share of receiver hitches out on the road. There are multiple classes of receiver hitches that range from one ton up to 30,000+ lbs, though Prime Auto Accessories sells mid-range receiver hitches for sale rated at 16,000 lbs.
Receiver-type trailer hitches are a well-valued towing option, but we recommend comparing and contrasting this style of trailer hitch with 5th wheel and gooseneck-style hitches.
This trusted towing brand has been around since 1952, and specializes in 5th wheel trailer hitches. They sell multiple hitch styles and also carry ball mounts, brake controllers, electrical wiring, trailer couplers, pin boxes, and other cargo management solutions.
Andersen Hitches is no stranger to the trailer hitch game, either. With over 50 years in the business, their American-made products keep quality and top-notch engineering designs in mind. We like their slogan: “You take care of the fun, we’ll take care of the towing.” Sound good to us!
This well-known trailer hitch brand wasn’t the first to make a hitch, but they claim that they’ve caused other brand to re-invent their hitch designs due to their superior engineering. We’re not going to disagree with them because B&W makes high-quality products that we’re proud to carry here at Prime Auto Accessories.
Husky will do the job right at a price that won’t run over your wallet. Specializing in various towing products like OEM hitches, scissor jacks, brake control, and even weight distribution hitches, Husky towing products are a welcome addition to our line-up of top-tier truck accessories.
