No Comments

Towing a trailer seems rather simple—just hitch up and go. But there really is a lot more to towing a trailer to your work or your play destination.

For in-depth information on how to get started towing click on Hitches & Towing 101.

Keep following this blog and we will continue to inform you about what you need to know to safely maneuver your trailer.

Today we will start with the trailer and vehicle weight codes that you need to know.

  • GVWR – The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating is the maximum a vehicle can weigh, fully loaded with people and cargo.
  • GCWR – The Gross Combined Weight Rating is the maximum the tow vehicle and a trailer together can weigh fully loaded.
  • GTW – The Gross Trailer Weight is the weight of the trailer and cargo.
  • TW – The Tongue Weight is the amount of the trailer’s weight that is placed on the hitch ball by the trailer coupler.

To come up with these ratings many factors are included:

  • Vehicle’s suspension
  • Frame
  • Location of the rear axle in relationship to the front end
