How Can I Determine What My Vehicle Can Tow?

-Kathy D. San Diego, CA

There are several factors that determine what your vehicle can tow. Two of the most important factors are your vehicle’s curb weight, and the towing equipment that you have installed on your vehicle.

When you are making your trailer reservation with U-Haul, they will also ask you about the make, model and year of your vehicle to help you determine which trailer will work best for you.

If you don’t have a trailer hitch installed in your vehicle, you can get help having one installed prior to your trailer rental.

Choosing the right trailer to rent isn’t just about your vehicle though. It is also about what you are wanting to haul.
