What to Consider When Buying a New Tow Vehicle – Part 2

tow vehicle for Trailer Spokane WA

This week we are discussing some of the important factors that go into making the all important “towing vehicle” purchase!

Choosing your trailer in Spokane WA first is one of the most important tips we can offer, because it will help you know determine what qualities your tow vehicle needs to have to safely haul!

Once, you know the trailer you will be hauling, then you want to find out the weight of the trailer will be when it is fully loaded.  Once  you know what the weight of the trailer fully loaded is, you can begin shopping.

 Here are 3 more things to consider about your new tow vehicle:

  1. Drive System

When you purchase a new tow vehicle, you may want to consider the drive system.  Having a tow vehicle that has rear-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive is important to have when choosing a tow vehicle.

  • A vehicle that has the option for a rear-wheel drive so that the engine’s power is directed to the axle that is bearing the most weight
  • With a front-wheel drive vehicle, you have more of a chance to lose control of the rear of the vehicle
  • Four wheel drive will help haul that extra weight through varying types of weather
  1. Transmission

People all have their own opinion as to which type of transmission is best for hauling a trailer, automatic or manual transmission.

  • Some people think that manual transmission could be more distracting when shifting, while others prefer it
  • Others believe that automatic can give you more time to focus on driving and your safety

The bottom line… Choose a transmission that you feel more confident with.

  1. Tow Package

Many people are not aware that there is more to a tow package than just the ball hitch on the back? A vehicle that comes with a tow package may have better suspension, brakes, bigger radiator, and transmission that allows more power to be sent to the drive wheels. These factors create a more powerful vehicle capable of towing a heavy load.

There is a lot of information to consider when shopping for the right tow vehicle that will keep you both safe and in control while on the road. Here at Trailer Boss, we are dedicated to help you accomplish both, so contact us today if you need help finding a tow vehicle or trailer in Spokane WA!

What to Consider When Buying a New Tow Vehicle – Part 1

Towing Vehicle for Trailer Seattle WAAre you considering buying a new trailer, or do you already own a great one? If you do, it is important that your towing vehicle is capable of hauling your beast of a trailer in Seattle WA!  This week we will be discussing many of the important features to consider as you search for your next tow vehicle.

Trailer Boss  is here to help you find your perfect fit for whatever you are hauling!

Before you even start shopping for the right tow vehicle, you should already be aware of the trailer that you will be hauling.   This may seem backwards, but there are so many different types and sizes of trailers out there to choose from. If you buy the vehicle first, you may be limiting yourself to a smaller trailer. Below are 3 very important factors to consider when buying a new tow vehicle:

  1. Tow Capacity

This is what the manufacturer puts as the maximum weight your new vehicle can tow. Check out the tow capacity of the vehicle to ensure that it is able to handle the weight.

  1. Curb Weight

This is the weight when the fuel tank is full, without passengers or cargo. Fuel efficiency is always important, so many vehicles are being built lighter to help you save money while hauling!

  1. Wheelbase

This is the distance from the front of the axle to the rear axle of the tow vehicle. This number is very important to the control and stability of the vehicle. When you have a longer wheelbase on your tow vehicle, you have less of a chance of the trailer weighing down the rear axle and lifting the front axle.

Our next blog post will discuss a few more important factors to consider when buying a new towing vehicle!  You can always contact our professional trailer experts at Trailer Boss to learn more about finding the perfect tow vehicle for hauling a trailer in Seattle WA!

 

 

Haul Safely this Labor Day Weekend

Labor Day weekend is upon us and many of you are planning getaways! That means that the roads are full of vacationers towing their homes-away-from-home with them on their journeys. If you planning to be one of them, it is important to stay safe on the road and avoid some of the most common towing mistakes!

Today we want to discuss to mistake of not knowing the ratings on your trailer in Seattle, WA.

Your tow vehicle (the vehicle doing the towing) can only carry and haul so much weight. Overloading your tow vehicle, trailer, or both can cause a whole host of problems like failing brakes, broken suspensions, overheated transmissions, or blown-out tires. None of these things make for happy campers, and some can be very dangerous.

Gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR): This is the weight limit for your vehicle, including the vehicle itself plus passengers, cargo, and all accessories.

Gross combination weight rating (GCWR): This is the maximum weight of the tow vehicle plus the loaded trailer, equipment, passengers, fuel, and anything else you may plan to haul with you on your journey.

Gross axle weight rating (GAWR): This is the amount of weight a single axle can safely carry. It is s important to know this value for the safety of your tow vehicle and your trailer.

Towing capacity: This is the amount of weight your vehicle can pull.

Tongue weight: This is the amount of the trailer’s weight that is borne by the trailer hitch. Ideally, this should be about 10 percent of the total trailer weight. If you have too much tongue weight, it will make your vehicle’s steering less responsive. If there is too little the trailer might sway.

If you’re having trouble estimating the combined weight of your trailer plus cargo, take the loaded trailer to a vehicle scale at a nearby weigh station or truck stop.

At Trailer Boss, we can help you prepare your trailer in Seattle WA for all of your summer journeys!   Let us know if you have any questions about what your vehicle can haul! Contact us today!

How to Tow, Tow, Tow Your Boat

 

watercraft trailer Spokane WASummer is a great time to haul your boat to the water with your shiny watercraft trailer in Spokane, WA!  You can take your family and friends out fishing or tubing on the warmest days.

If you are a seasoned boat owner, you are aware that towing a boat on a trailer will change the way your tow vehicle handles.  Today we are going to share some tips for safe boat hauling.

  • Distribute weight evenly from side to side and lengthwise. This may require moving equipment, fuel, and water onboard the boat to achieve the right balance
  • Your tow vehicle and trailer should be nearly parallel to the ground. Remember to check the tongue weight to make sure that you are not overloading the hitch; it should weigh about ten percent of the all-up trailer weight
  • Take the extra time to secure the boat to the trailer with ratchet straps and ensure the trailer winch strap is attached to the bow eye
  • A boat adds weight to the overall vehicle, so it is important to take a little extra time when stopping. It’s also a good idea to avoid sudden turns, starts, or stops that can affect trailer stability. It’s also a good idea to engage low gear when driving downhill
  • Check to make sure your trailer lights are working, and use them even when there is daylight
  • Before you head out on the road, always perform a walk-around inspection of the trailer
  • Store a spare tire that fits your trailer, a grease gun, a lug wrench that fits the tires, and a tire gauge somewhere just in case

If you remember these simple guidelines when hauling your watercraft trailer in Spokane WA, you will end up enjoying the warm weather on the water, instead of on the side of the road!
If you have any questions about hauling your boat this summer, do not hesitate to contact your trailer professionals at Trailer Boss, or come into one of our awesome locations!
