HITCHES and ACCESSORIES
There are several "classes" of hitch that are available for vehicles. From the lightest duty, being "class-1", then to "class-2" with a bit higher towing capacity, and then class-3 with an even higher towing capacity. Most full size vehicles would be fitted with a class-3 hitch. This type of hitch has a square socket or "receiver" peeking out from under the rear bumper. The towing capacity of this type of hitch is usually 5,000 lbs or more because it is solidly bolted to the vehicle's frame.

Not only can you use your new hitch to tow a trailer , but you can also use it to slide-in a bike rack or a cargo basket to carry equipment or luggage.
