Trailer Hitches

If you are an avid outdoorsman that enjoys things like camping, biking, and kayaking, chances are you have a trailer to transport these things. If you don’t have one, you may be in the market to have a trailer hitch installed. Here at the Desert Automotive Muffler and Hitch Company, we are a trailer hitch supplier that supplies trailer hitches for trucks. If you are unfamiliar with what a trailer hitch is, allow us to explain.


What is a trailer hitch and what does it do?

A trailer hitch is also known as a tow hitch. It is a metal device attached to the frame of a vehicle. These devices connect other items to your vehicle, such as trailers, kayak and bike racks, etc. There are five specific types of trailer hitches:

  • Rear Receiver Trailer Hitch
  • Weight Distribution Hitch
  • Bumper Hitch
  • 5th Wheel Hitch
  • Gooseneck Hitch

Why should I get a trailer hitch?

Even if you don’t own a trailer, and you don’t go out kayaking, biking, hiking, or camping often, you may still benefit from having a trailer hitch installed on your vehicle. Not all cars come with a trailer hitch. If you have recently purchased a new vehicle, you may want to consider installing a trailer hitch. Even if you don’t use it that often, it will help retain value on your car if you ever decide to sell it one day.

If you do become an avid biker or camper in the future, then your trailer hitch is the perfect addition to your vehicle because you can easily haul your bike, kayak, or camping equipment with it. If you do happen to have a trailer hitch already installed on your vehicle, have a look to see if it is rusting. If it is, it may be a good idea to replace it. A trailer hitch doesn’t necessarily have to be fitted on trucks or SUVs only. Smaller and medium-sized vehicles with limited space will also benefit from having a trailer hitch installed.

With competitive pricing and some of the best products on the market stocked at our facility, Desert Automotive Muffler and Hitch Company can assist you with your selection and installation needs.
