Receiver Hitches for RV Owners

There's nothing like the freedom of hitting the open road in an RV. Of course, for longer trips, it's usually a wise decision to haul a car, to have something smaller to drive around in at your destination locations. However, you can't simply chain up a car to your RV and expect good results. It takes properly installed receiver hitches to allow RV owners to safely haul their cars or SUVs during long road trips.

What is a receiver hitch?

Without going too much into the complexities of trailer and vehicle hitches, a receiver hitch is one that attaches directly to the frame of the towing vehicle. And since the hitch is installed in such a secure manner, it is capable of giving RV owners the hauling capacity they need to safely tow their cars.
