Trailer hitches are often categorized into different classes depending on their maximum load capacity. The classes are broken down like this.
Class I – up to 2,000 lbs - designed for the lightest loads
Class II – up to 3,500 lbs – designed for light loads
Class III – up to 5,000 lbs – designed for larger loads (most popular size)
Class IV – up to 10,000 lbs – designed for larger loads
Class V – up to 17,000 lbs – designed for the largest loads
Trailer hitches are designed to be used with a trailer ball and receiver of the similar class for safe towing.
The sizes of receiver tubes come in various sizes depending on the maximum load they carry and the class of hitch that they are being used in conjunction with.
Class I & II - 1 1⁄4" receiver
Class III & IV - 2" receiver
Class V - 2 in or 2 1⁄2" receiver
Towing balls are available in various sizes depending on the load and they must match the proper size of the coupler on the item being towed. The most popular sizes of tow balls are listed below. Trailer balls also have different shank sizes that must match the size on the receiver or ball mount that the tow ball is installed to – always verify the proper size for safe towing.
1 7⁄8" – used mainly on small, light loads
2" – most commonly used ball on most medium sized loads
2 5⁄16" - heavy duty ball for heavy loads
Tow balls may also be mounted directly to bumpers with provided holes on many trucks, but the load limit on a bumper hitch is much lower than using a dedicated trailer hitch for your truck or SUV. For proper towing safety, you must use the correct combination of hitches, balls, ball mounts or receivers and stay within your pickup trucks towing capabilities.
Front trailer hitches are also available for full-sized trucks and SUV’s. Front mounted hitches can accommodate additional accessories like bike carriers, winches, step plates, snow plows and more. Front trailer hitches are mounted directly to the frame of a vehicle to ensure a reliable connection.
Buying the proper equipment for towing is essential for a safe trip at work or play. Never go cheap or underestimate the class of hitch you need for the job. It is always better to play it safe when towing is concerned! SharpTruck carries top-of-the-line products from Curt Manufacturing and others to get the job done for you.
