If you’re purchasing a RAM truck for towing or new parts to complement your current ride, Buckeye Superstore offers a variety of vehicles, products, and services fit for your needs. To help you out, we compiled a few tips to ensure every haul is a success in your truck or SUV.
Before equipping your vehicle for towing, find out your truck’s max towing capacity, which can be found in the owner’s manual. For example, towing capacities range from 6,250 lb to 12,750 lb in the 2019 RAM 1500 depending on configuration.
Next, you’ll need to find the right hitch. Hitches for light to medium loads differ from those used for large camping trailers; they are split into five separate classes. The hitch ball and drawbar also come in varying sizes. Choosing the correct combination can be tricky, which is why we recommend talking to our trained technicians before making any changes to your vehicle.
Before heading out, you’ll need to check a few additional items:
- Trailer-wiring harness
- Brake battery
- Tongue weight
- Hitch height
- Tires on your vehicle and trailer
To assist with every towing adventure, our RAM trucks offer a bevy of systems to help you out. Thanks to the new innovation of trailer coverage with blind spot monitoring, your entire haul is accounted for when switching lanes. Additional elements include a tow hook, 4-/7-pin connector, hitch receiver, and more.
At our new car dealership serving Mansfield, OH, our RAM trucks offer plenty of towing capacity and driver-assist amenities that create a smooth-sailing experience. Our sales team is happy to help you find the vehicle best-suited for your specific needs, whether you often haul farming equipment or boats for weekend getaways.
