If you have something you want to tow, you need to have a trailer hitch installed to be able to do so. The type of hitch, however depends on what you will be towing and your tow vehicle. There are three primary categories of hitches; receiver hitches, fifth wheel hitches and gooseneck hitches. While there are thousands of hitches in these three categories, there’s really only one that fits your specific vehicle and tow needs.
