Summer Towing Guide - Must Have Towing Accessories - 4 Essential Truck Towing Products

Guide For Everything You Need To Haul the Hefty Stuff!

When the temperatures heat up rapidly, many of our Bumper Superstore customers are daydreaming about exciting weekends on the lake with Jet Skis and boats. There really is nothing more rewarding after feeling trapped all week: not only do you get to enjoy the ride out there in your favorite truck, it's time to load up the cooler, throw on the sunscreen, and make it even more of an adventure with the camping goods stowed away in the bed.

Here are a few of the extras you'll need to properly haul along the thrilling toys in life, and get a few extra pounds movin' on along behind you!

Ball Hitches

From A-list brands such as Andersen, B&W, and Trimax, we have the perfect model for you. To determine the ideal trailer ball needed for your setup, you just check out the coupler size, trailer ball hole diameter, and overall towing capacity. It's best to select a trailer ball with a ball capacity that is greater than the calculated gross weight of your trailer. With some of our personal favorites made out of Chrome Plated Steel, these are for the most part universal and are your “anchor” for the tow before you unload on the dock.

5th Wheel Hitches

These Hitches are an essential U-shaped hitch that acts as an active point for the trailer to connect and situate all of its weight on. Similar to what is used on semi trucks, it's very sturdy and safe, and is for use with the largest and most demanding summertime loads out there. Check out our selection from Andersen as well as B&W Companion, for hassle-free and superbly engineered towing experiences.

Cargo Carriers

Cargo Carriers are one of the most ingenious accessories out there that free up much-needed space for summer fun. Whether you choose a roof or receiver-hitch model, you'll be shielding yourself from unexpected rain and other inclement weather. We carry the best brands in the industry such as B-Dawg and Versa Haul, with many different styles available to meet your summertime needs. Constructed from A-grade materials such as Powder Coat Finish, these cargo solutions are equipped with anti-tilt brackets, and are ideal for motorcycles and ATVs.

Hitch Locks

Hitch Locks are designed to prevent thieves from stealing your entire trailer. A hitch lock keeps your hitch and receiver together until you provide the key to unlock it. We provide them in different shapes and sizes, which can be placed on different locations of the trailer and receiver hitch. Trimax offers both key and adjustable receiver locks, as well as their durable “Twister Series” made of high-quality machine-hardened steel.
