What our customers are saying:

Late Friday night November 18, 2005 I ordered a Valley 82121 hitch for my 2006 Chevrolet Silverado that I have on order. I went out of town Saturday morning, November 19th and when I returned that night, I had one email saying that you had received my order, another that my order had been processed and a third saying that my order had been shipped and even gave a tracking number for it. I received the hitch today, Wednesday November 23rd and am super pleased with it. Unreal experience! Couldn't have asked for any better - Good Price, Good Service and Good Hitch! Thanks for making this one of the best internet buying experiences ever. Hey, could you call GM and tell them your secret? My truck has been or order for over a month and I haven't received any word about when it will be shipped. Billy

How To Tow a Trailer

Today we are going to review the components needed to pull a trailer. Basically, this video is designed for somebody who just decided they have a need for a trailer, so we will cover all the components in the most basic form, so you know exactly how to update your vehicle. What we are going to do is start from the truck and work our way back to the trailer. First off, we are going to show you the hitch itself. All vehicles require a hitch to pull a trailer. What this device does is makes an attaching point on the frame of the vehicle, or body components, and transmits the forces from the trailer to this one point here. This point here is the receiver part. Consequently this hitch is called a receiver hitch because this hitch can receive a draw bar, or also called a ball mount. It is held in place by this pin which we just ed, and this clip holds it in place. There are more fancier pins, like locking pins, but that is the basic thing you need right there to get the job done. 1:12


Trailer Hitch Classes and Weight Capacity Comparison

Today we're going to cover a common question, what does class I, II, and III mean and what does it mean to my vehicle. We're going to go through them all and show you what the differences are, some are subtle and some are rather apparent. Basically, we'll make it easier for you. We're going to start off with this example here which is a class I hitch. Class I means this hitch is good for trailers up to 2000 pounds. What we're going to show you over here is the sticker which shows the different weights and capacities involved. We'll show you what those mean. As you can see by the sticker here, were going to show you some notes on it, these stickers will apply to any class hitch that you come across. Once you figure out what this means, you're home free. Starting here at max gross trailer weight which shows 2000 pounds.


Cleaning Weld Nuts for Trailer Hitch Installation

Okay as you can see here on the drivers side, our weld nut has a lot of corrosion built up in there. And when we try to install our 10 millimeter bolt is not wanting to start at all, in fact it almost seems like the bolt is too big for the weld nut. It is a common misconception, again when the weld nuts got a lot of build up in there.


Lowering Exhaust Example for Trailer Hitch Installation

The first step to do is to lower the exhaust and we will do that by taking off the rubber hangers on the front and back, and there is one hidden in the back.


Class III Trailer Hitch and Weight Capacities Review

Traditionally a class III receiver hitch is good for trailers up to 5000 pounds and 500 pounds tongue weight. There are a few different variances from that, well show you that here in a second. Again were going to start with the stickers and show you the differences, as you can see here the max gross trailer weight is 5000 pounds as we discussed. The tongue weight looks to be 500 pounds, again about 10percent of your trailer weight. On the other side of the class III you will see a sticker for weight distribution. That is a specification when you use a device that goes in between the truck and the trailer that takes up the tongue weight. What it does is distributes the weight between the truck and the trailer and allows you to carry a heavier weight. As far as a class III hitch is concerned, that increases the rating the hitch can handle.


Class II Trailer Hitch and Weight Capacities Review

Now well move on to a class II receiver hitch. Well cover the weights on the sticker and cover a couple of differences on the receiver tube itself. You see here it says weight carrying ballmount that means the ballmount going into the receiver and the ball, that is what that means. You see here where it says weight distribution that is a separate device that allows you to carry heavier weights, that does not really apply to class II receiver hitches. Again by itself on the hitch its rated for 3500 pounds, that is the total weight. The tongue weight is listed at 300 pounds. On the details of the Class II hitch, there is not too many details on it compared to a class one. Basically all class II hitches have this ring that goes around the end of the tube. This is so at a quick glance you are working with a class II.


Class I Trailer Hitch and Weight Capacities Review

Were going to start off with this example here which is a class I hitch. Class I means this hitch is good for trailers up to 2000 pounds. What were going to show you over here is the sticker which shows the different weights and capacities involved. Well show you what those mean. As you can see by the sticker here, were going to show you some notes on it, these stickers will apply to any class hitch that you come across. Once you figure out what this means, you are home free. Starting here at max gross trailer weight which shows 2000 pounds. So that means the total weight you can pull with your trailer, for example if your load on your trailer is 500 pounds, you have 1500 pounds of weight to put on it so it remains at a safe capacity for this hitch. Moving on to this next number which is max gross tongue weight, it shows 200 pounds there.


How To Clean Weld Nuts

A common problem that we run into with a lot of our vehicles that have existing weld nuts in the bottom of the frame is that when you go to try to put a bolt in them you have an excessive amount of road grime or rust built up in there and when you go to put your bolt inside the weld nuts you find not only does it not want to thread but it also appears that the bolt is too big for the weld nut. The first thing that typically comes to mind is that the bolts that I received are too big and 99.9 percent of the time this is not the case. What we have actually got here is an excessive amount of rust and debris built up in the weld nuts that are preventing the bolt from starting. We are going to show you how to get those thoroughly cleaned out so that we can not only get our bolt started but to get it threaded completely into the weld nut. 00:41


How to Make a Thread Tap

Today we are going to show you a cheat. In some cases you are going to have a hitch that uses threaded holes in the bottom of the frame. Those holes are going to be probably corroded up within a few years of the vehicle being on the road with dirt, grime, salt corrosion, you name it is probably in there inside the fine thread. What you want to do is clean out the threads probably with an existing hitch bolt if it is lightly corroded and you can probably work it in and out a few times and do that. 00:20


Drilling a Spare Tire Pan for a Trailer Hitch Installation

What we will do next is tighten this down just enough to snug it to hold it in place, and then we will see where to drill or holes out using the hitch as a template. We will use the hitch as a template to drill or holes, so we will just use a drill and let the hitch do the work for us, we will punch right through this thin metal with a half-inch bit.


Lowering Exhaust Hangers

Alright we will get started by lowering the exhaust. These rubber hangers here will need lubricant sprayed on them to make it easier to get them off. Before we lower the exhaust we are actually going to put a safety strap underneath here so we can control the exhaust as we lower it. See how we can control it.


Handle Nut Demonstration

Today we are going to show you the proper operation of a handle nut. Basically, a lot of hitch installs will use this type of device here. You can manipulate this handle any way you want to, to run this nut into an area that has a tight fit. You can bend this at will, basically. Just take it like this and bend it, and then put another hook into it, and make a handle like that. And you can thread it into the frame, where you can actually run your bolt through the bottom of it. All right, and now we will go ahead actually and install this handle nut on a typical application.


Drilling to Enlarge a Frame Hole for Hitch Install

On this hitch we have to enlarge this hole to a half-inch and there is one on the opposite side we have to do the same thing with.


Weld Nut Removal and Replacement Review

So you are in the middle of doing your hitch installation and you are in the process of taking out one of your existing factory bolts. In the process you find that the bolt is not coming out due to the fact that the weld nut inside the frame has broken. We are just going to go ahead and show you a couple of things you can do to not only get the bolt out of the way but to also go ahead and continue on to be able to put your hitch in position without the weld nut welded inside the frame. The first thing that we obviously need to do is go ahead and get the bolt out of here. There are a couple of different ways you can do this. You can take a chisel, is you have one large and strong enough to do so, and possible grind the head of the bolt off. Or you can actually take a torch and torch it off. And that is actually what we are going to do on this application here. I am going to try to get most or as much of the head of the bolt off as I can. And we will take and push the remaining section of the bolt-weld nut combination up inside the frame. 0:49


FAQ Trailer Hitch Exhaust Rattle

Today on our 2010 Lincoln MKX were going to address the exhaust rattle issue. There are a couple of reasons for occasional contact between hitch and exhaust. One, the manufacturers have loose tolerances from mounting the hangers that suspend exhaust systems. Final placement of the exhaust can vary slightly from vehicle to vehicle. The flexibility of rubber isolator connecting exhaust hanger to the vehicle frame allows for more movement of the exhaust system relative to other vehicle components. An isolator can also stretch over time.

  • I've created a photo for you showing all three hitches next to each other. All three hitches share a very similar design, have the same weight capacities and would install in the same manner. The crossbar and receiver opening of all three hitches would be visible below the rear bumper fascia of the 2015 Mazda 6. Of the three, I'd recommend the Draw-Tite 24908 if you were using the hitch as an attachment point for a hitch mounted accessory like a bike rack or a cargo carrier. If you...

  • Even though your 2015 Toyota Highlander LE has a 2,000 pound maximum towing capacity, you can still use a Class III trailer hitch such as # C13169. You will just be limited to the 2,000 pound capacity. The benefit of having a Class III hitch with a 2 inch receiver is that there are more accessory options available that will fit such as bike racks and cargo carriers.

  • What is the Highest Capacity Hitch Available for the 2011 Honda Odyssey
  • All of the hitches we offer for your 2011 Honda Odyssey have a 3,500 lb towing capacity. There aren't any available with a higher capacity. Even if there was I doubt your vehicle would have the needed capacity. Check your owners manual to see what the towing capacity is. Most likely it wouldn't be enough to tow a 5,500 lb trailer. In a towing setup the weakest component is the overall capacity as a setup is only as strong as it's weakest component.

  • What Vehicles Does the Draw Tite Hitch 02541 Fit
  • The part number 02541 is not in Draw Tite's database, nor have we ever carried it. I did some digging online and it looks like it may have been used to fit 69-72 Chevy Fullsize trucks. Look on the side plate or on the back of the crosstube. There should be a part number stamped there. After finding some pictures of what someone thought was a 02541 hitch it looks very similar to the Draw Tite hitch part # 75034 which fits a huge range of late model trucks.

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendations for 2010 Nissan Rogue to Carry Wheel Chair and Lift
  • For a 2010 Nissan Rogue I recommend Curt trailer hitch # C13168. Since you want to carry a wheel chair lift you will look at the tongue weight capacity of the hitch which is 350 pounds. This means the combined weight of the carrier and the wheel chair cannot exceed 350 pounds. But you also have to check the vehicle owners manual to determine the capacity of the vehicle itself. If its tongue weight capacity is less than 350 pounds then you go by the lower rating. Based on owners manual...

Since the weight of the carrier and the wheel chair would far exceed the carrying capacity of your vehicle, I have a solution that may work for you. I recommend installing a hitch, like the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # C13168. This is a Class lll hitch and has a 2 inch receiver opening. I then recommend the etrailer ball mount...
