Sometimes when towing you will find you need more specialized equipment to get the job done. Special equipment becomes useful when you are towing a larger load. Most of the times this happens with goosenecks and fifth wheels. Moore’s Custom Trailers is here to inform you on all the specialized towing equipment necessary for certain applications.
Weight Distribution Hitches
In the world of specialized towing you will find that a weight distribution hitch is one of the most essential hitches that a tow rig can have. This specialized towing hitch provides an improved control over your vehicle and trailer. The hitch does this by distributing the weight across the trailers axles evenly. The simplicity of this hitch allows it to mount into the receiver tube opening. After the weight distribution hitch is inserted into the receiver, it is then time to attach the two spring bars to the trailer’s A-frame. In doing this, the hitch will now lift upon the back of the vehicle. The lift provided by the spring bars give you leveling for both the vehicle and heavy trailer. These particular towing hitches are compatible with class 3, 4, 5, Xtra Duty, Commercial Duty and even a RV hitch. The weight distribution hitches are available in either a trunnion bar style or round bar style.
A pintle hitch is known for its versatile use and high towing capacity. A pintle hitch can tow through a vast amount of terrain and is commonly used in industries that tend to go off-road. A pintle hitch is fairly simple like many in this category. Attached to the trailer is a ring also known as the lunette eye. The lunette eye attaches to the pintle hook of the tow vehicle. Pintle hitches are known for being versatile for a reason, and are capable of towing 10,000-60,000 pounds, depending on the capacity of the hitch. Multiple mounting holes can be provided for an adjustable feature. It wouldn’t be versatile if the pintle hitch didn’t offer multiple different mounting styles. Whether its a channel-style, mount style, drawbar-style or the lunette eyes with nuts, the pintle hitch is available in multiple configurations.
