Rear Mount Hitches

Rear mount trailer hitches come in a variety of classes based on weight capacities. From class 1 to class 5, the gross trailer weight capacity can range from 2,000 to 20,000 pounds. The most common class of rear mount hitch is the class 3. With a weight capacity of 8,000 pounds, the class 3 hitch is capable of accommodating many different towing applications including popup campers, boat trailers and livestock trailers. It can also be found as standard on a variety of vehicles with towing prep packages including full-size cars, trucks and SUVs.

Since rear mount hitches are designed to fit specific vehicles, not all five classes are available for use on any tow vehicle. Always choose a trailer hitch that matches the towing capacity of your vehicle. Even if you do not need it now, having the extra towing capacity can come in handy later down the road—especially since a towing system is only as strong as its lowest-rated component.
