class 1 hitch

3 posts in this topic

Hello I just bought a van and was wondering if you think a class 1 hitch would be able to haul 2 snowmobiles on a trailer? Or should I install a class 3 thanks.

Maybe this will help answer your question. The second question is whether your vehicle has a tow rating to handle the load. I'm thinking it probably does. The 200lb. tongue weight might be a bit shy depending on the trailer type.

Class I Hitches

This is the lightest type of trailer hitch. A Class 1 trailer hitch can handle a gross trailer weight (GTW) of up to 2,000 lbs., and a maximum tongue weight of 200 lbs. The hitch may be a simple drawbar-type hitch or step bumper-type hitch. Other hitches may have a crossbar with a small one-inch or 1-1/2-inch square receiver, or a small 2-inch by 5/8-inch receiver. This type of hitch is often used on smaller cars, smaller pickups and smaller vans (minivans) for bicycle racks, camping racks, and light-duty towing. We sell many fine class 1 hitches as well as an economical, easy to install (do-it-yourself) Class 1 trailer hitch.

Easy answer, install the class 3! They dont cost that much, and you would hate to cause an accident by not spening a few dollars more! It will be pushing or exceding the limit on a class 1
