Preparing Your Vehicle to Tow a Camper

Have you picked out the perfect camper for your trip? If it's a towable camper, then there are some things you should look at before heading out on your trip. For one, do you know what the towing capacity is for your car or truck? There are some 290-pound trailers that can be pulled by motorcycles after all. You'll need to check the weight of the camper, and then look in your owner's manual to find the rating for your vehicle's towing capacity.

In addition, you may need a special hitch package to ensure that your car or truck doesn't suffer any damage. Hitches need to be strong and durable to tow a camper for long periods of time. One thing that you should do is only pack the front of the camper, but you don't want to add too much weight, as it will increase your towing needs.
