Towing Guide


Disclaimer: When calculating your vehicle's max towing capacity, you must account for: trailer weight, passenger weight, added accessories, liquids in tanks, and any cargo and camping gear you have loaded. For this tow guide we have allowed for 1,000 lbs for trailers over 8,000 lbs, 750 lbs for trailers under 8,000 lbs, and 500 lbs for trailers under 5,000 lbs for average Cargo Weight. You must determine if these allowances are adequate for your situation. Always confirm your vehicle's towing capacity and hitch capacity directly from your vehicle's manufacturer before purchasing or towing a trailer. The decision to operate your vehicle and tow a trailer is ultimately your responsibility. In the event that there is no available data for your specific trailer and/or vehicle, please consult with the manufacturer in order to get the most accurate information. If your specific vehicle is not listed, please contact us for assistance.
