In my opinion ,why not install the biggest one so that you can tow anything in the future because the price difference in buying and installing is verry little. as far as the toung drop after your hitch is mounted on truck just measure camper heigth in comparisom to hitch receiver on truck and buy the correct one

What weight can i tow with a 2004 camry


The weight the car will tow and the weight it can legally tow are two different things. You need to check on the law where you are. Whatever you tow observing the manufacturer's noseweight limits is important unless the rear suspension is modified.

Can I safely pull a pop up camper (1500 to 2000 lbs) with my 2003 buick lesabre limited? I do not have a hitch yet, so if you say I can pull it, do I need more equipment installed on the car?


LOOK IN OWNERS MANUAL IN GLOVE COMPARTMENT.IT WILL TELL YOU YOUR TOWING CAPACITY. TRUCKS AND SUV WILL HAVE MORE PULLING POWER.THEY WOULD BE THE IDEAL THING FOR PULLING CAMPER OR BOAT.FRONT WHEEL DRIVE AXLES AND DRIVE CHAIN CANT PULL TO MUCH WEIGHT COULD BREAK FRONT AXLE AND STRETCH BREAK DRIVE CHAIN.

I bought a used 1999 Ford F-150 Super Cab pickup a several years ago. The dealer didn't have the '99 owners manuel so they gave me the 2000 yr's manual. Well, I have been pulling a popup camper for years...


All I can tell you, is I would not own any vehicle with a 3.08 Gear

You need at least a 3.90 just to have a nice driver or even consider towing

I have an 03 Toyota Sequoia, 4.7L V8, factory installed hitch receiver and wiring. The manual says it has a towing capacity of 6500 lbs GVWR. I have been towing a popup trailer weighing 3000 pounds with no...


I think the tongue weight rating on the stock hitch is 600 lbs, so you are over that. You probably want to level out truck to handle better when towing, so the best way is to get air bag helper that raises the back end.

I am having having trouble in WA finding if i can fit a Haymanreese hitch to my 2007 Elantra


I checked the Reese site, and there is one available #77167 Insta-Hitch 1 which is a class 1 rating, drawbar #3594. Keep in mind that your Elantra is limited to towing 750 lbs WITHOUT trailer brakes, and up to 1500 lbs WITH trailer brakes. The installation of the hitch claims to be 'no drilling' but the exhaust system must be lowered for installation (then returned to position), and some 'trimming' of the cars fascia must be done. Take into consideration the terrain you intend to drive through. If there will be a lot of hills, you will struggle to accelerate, and braking w/out trailer brakes on long hills will overheat and reduce your stopping ability. Remember to figure in weight of passengers, luggage, and anything you put in or on the trailer, car roof rack etc. Good luck, and safe travel to you. Curt

Towing capacity


While a Grand Prix isn't really designed to tow,the capacity of the car would be 4 adults and luggage.In my estimation,that would equate to roughly 1000 pounds that the car can comfortably haul around.Now,you do have to realize that this is going to be ******* the transmission especially,and the engine secondly.Definitely install an auxiliary transmission cooler to help dissipate the heat from the trans fluid.A close look at the rear suspension and possibly any upgrades there will help out with the tongue weight that a trailer creates.Check and see how much the trailer actually weighs before proceeding.Unlike cars of 30 years ago,that were outfitted with V8,rear wheel drive, truck engines and transmissions,today's cars really aren't the ideal choice to tow with,as a front wheel drive transaxle is pretty light duty.Towing a lawnmower and small trailer,or a jet ski,no problem.A camper trailer would need to be really light,and the other issue might be brakes.Check your brakes really well on your car,as they will also be stopping the weight of whatever you're towing.Good luck.
