When towing your camper or boat, make sure your vehicle is in proper condition to do so though. If you are not sure what condition your vehicle is in, make sure to schedule an appointment with us.

5th Wheel

Fifth wheel towing will be a mounted directly in the bed of your truck. This will provide a larger towing capacity as it provides more weight distribution over your rear wheels and suspension. You’ll start seeing this in your 3/4 ton and 1 ton pickups. 5th wheel towing will also provide you the best ride comfort going down the roads and easier up/down hills. The 5th wheel hitches will utilize a kingpin and pin receiver and you’ll find a wide variety of different receivers. read more

The treads on rain tires are generally V-shaped, allowing them to quickly channel water away from the tire’s driving surface. The rubber on the driving surface of the tires wears off with use, which reduces tread depth over time. read more
