  • Towing Capacity of 2016 Hyundai Sonata
    From what I was able to determine by checking the owner's manual of your 2016 Hyundai Sonata, they do not recommend trailer towing with this vehicle. This doesn't mean you absolutely cannot, but your best bet would be to consult with your local Hyundai dealership to determine what they recommend for your vehicle to make it possible. If you find out from them that you are able to tow a small trailer carrying your Harley, you'll need a hitch, wiring harness and ball mount with hitch ball...

  • How to Transport a Trailer with a 2015 Honda CR-V
    I do have a way that you could possibly transport your motorcycle with your 2015 Honda CR-V but unfortunately all of the motorcycle carriers are fits for 2" receivers so you will need to use a trailer to move your motorcycle around.

Even if your 1-1/4" receiver...

For wiring, I recommend using the Tekonsha # 119147KIT because it has a powered converter box that will help protect your vehicle from back feed in the event that there is a short on the trailer. To complete your towing package you'll also need a ball mount, hitch ball, hitch pin and clip; the Reese...

  • Trailer Hitch for a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country
    For your 2005 Chrysler Town and Country with Stow and Go seats I recommend Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class II - 1-1/4" Item # 36320. This hitch gives you 3500 lb max tow capacity and a 300 lb max tongue weight. It is perfect for the size trailer your towing. Keep in mind it does only have an 1-1/4" receiver tube opening so you are limited on the number of hitch mounted accessories that work with this hitch. If you ever plan on upgrading to a larger trailer or using...
