Earlier this week we discussed the importance of being aware of your tow ratings when hauling a trailer in Seattle WA.
Today we want to discuss another mistake that you might want to avoid while out on the highway.
One thing that you might want to consider is checking the local regulations before hauling your trailer in a different state.
Getting a ticket for not following regulations can surely put a damper on your family vacation, and it can be avoided with a simple check. For example, some states require chains that connect the trailer to the tow vehicle, while some states also require special braking equipment or additional side and rearview mirrors.
States also differ on their maximum towing speeds, the maximum trailer width, and the number of vehicles you’re allowed to tow. That said, it is important to understand the laws, not just for your home state, but for any state you travel through with your trailer.
Even though you want to hit the road quickly, taking the time and effort to prep for your trip can save you a lot of hassle in the long run.
