This blog post discusses which trailer has more downward pressure where it attaches to the car. We will be going over what each type of hitch can do for you and how they attach to your vehicle, as well as the pros and cons of each one. With so many choices out there, it is important to know all about them before making a decision!
The weight of the trailer is transferred to the tow vehicle through a hitch. When connecting the trailer, it may be necessary to adjust downward pressure on one side or the other where it attaches to the car. This will help balance out any difference in weight between trailers and avoid overloading one side of your tow vehicle.
While it is not always clear which trailer has more downward pressure where it attaches to the car, there are some key things that you can look for. To find out which trailer may have more downward pressure on the hitch ball, check both of these points:
1) The height of the hitch ball above ground and
2) The distance from the centerline of your truck’s rear axle to the centerline of your truck’s front axle. If either one is greater than 18 inches then this will indicate that there could be a problem with too much weight in one or both trailers.
The chart shows that the average weight for a Class A trailer is 4,500 pounds while Class C trailers weigh an average of 1,800 pounds. On the other hand, there is not such a dramatic difference between Classes B and D because both range from about 2,000-2,400 pounds!
