In Brooklyn Park, the weather outside is still pretty frosty. Fun in the summer sun can seem ages way, but it’s closer than you think. With the new year on the calendar, it’s a good time to start thinking about your plans for the coming year. If you start planning now, you can be ready to get in on the action anytime fun comes calling.


At Mobile Installation in Brooklyn Park, our Twin Cities aftermarket installation team can help you get ready for the good times to roll by installing everything you need for a road trip. In this blog post, we’ll talk about why now is the perfect time to install a trailer hitch on your vehicle.

The Basics of Towing

There are several kinds of towing devices to choose from, depending on your vehicle. A tow hitch attaches to the chassis of your vehicle, allowing for a wheeled component to be attached to the vehicle.


One of the most common towing devices is a tow ball, which allows you to slip a coupling over the trailer mount. These are typically used with some type of locking mechanism, like a chain or tow pin, which can usually be removed to swap out a cargo carrier or bike mount for added fun.


To make them safer, we connect your brake lights and turn signals. This is a legal D.O.T. requirement on all types of trailers, whether you’re driving with a camper or a boat trailer behind your vehicle.

Added Fun With Extra Cargo

If you plan to take a boat out to one of our beautiful lakes this summer, a tow hitch is a must. But even if you don’t plan to tow a boat, there are many great reasons to have a tow hitch on your car, truck, or SUV.


With a tow hitch, you can easily tow a trailer for hauling great deals you find around town at summer garage sales. You can also take your bikes to the park or the lake anytime you want to go for a ride. It’s a definite must if you own a motorcycle, especially if you plan to take a road trip. And of course, it’s a great excuse to rent an RV and go camping with your family.

Choosing the Right Towing Solution

There are two main types of trailer hitches. We can help you decide which towing configuration is right for your car, SUV, or pickup truck.


These are the two main towing configurations:


●        Fixed-Drawbar - These are one-piece configurations with a hole used for the trailer ball.


●        Receiver - A receiver hitch uses a rear-facing opening and mounts to the frame of the vehicle.
