Prestman Auto knows that many drivers in Salt Lake City, UT use their vehicles for towing. Boats, recreational vehicles, and outdoor toys of other types can be towed by many SUVs and other vehicles made today. Here are a few important things to remember.

Before you attempt to tow anything with your vehicle it is important to know the vehicles towing capacity. All SUVs and trucks made to tow are giving a rating that is expressed in pounds. You should keep the weight of the item you are towing under the suggested rating. Pulling too much weight can cause damage to your vehicle.

You will also want to choose the right gear for towing. You will need to find an appropriate trailer hitch for items like boats and small trailers. You may also need a tow bar in some situations. Towing with the wrong accessories could lead to vehicle damage or, even worse, an accident.
