What can my hitch carry?

Hitches are commonly referred to as trailer hitches but are not just used to tow a trailer. The most common uses for hitches are actually to install a bike rack or cargo basket. Each hitch has both a tongue capacity and towing capacity. The tongue capcity is the maximim amount of weight that the hitch can support at the point of attachment while the towing capcity is the maximum amount of weight the hitch can support while towing a trailer.

Hitches are categorized by class based on their tongue and towing capacity. Class 1 hitches typically have a tongue capacity of 200 pounds and a towing capacity of 2000 pounds. Class 2 hitches typically have a toungue capacity of 350 pounds and a towing capacity of 350 pounds. Class 3 hitches typically have a tongue capacity of 500 pounds and a towing capacity of 5000 pounds. There are also Class 4 and 5 hitches used on heavy duty trucks and commercial vehicles. The capacity of a Class 4 or 5 hitch will vary based on the vehicle. Always refer to the hitch and vehicle manufacturers listed tongue and towing capacity to determine exactly how much weight your vehicle and trailer hitch can handle
