MILFORD WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION HITCH

Quite often you will see vehicles towing heavy loads with the front of the vehicle pointing skyward. This is the result of additional weight pushing down on the rear of the vehicle – as is the case when towing caravans or trailers.

When this happens, it completely changes the characteristics of the vehicle’s stability and engineering. As a rule, towing heavy loads is in itself a cause for poor vehicle handling and often results in increased tyre wear and fuel use. More importantly, the lack of weight over the front of the vehicle will affect steering control and braking efficiency; making the vehicle less responsive and potentially dangerous to drive. While driving at night, the high front end will also cause misdirection of the head lights (ie: they point up) which further exacerbates the aforementioned condition.

These issues are all easily addressed however with the aid of a properly engineered and installed weight distribution hitch (please see the “notes” tab for more information). Just as the name implies, a weight distribution hitch system re-distributes the towing weight more evenly across the vehicle. It transfers some of the tow ball download to the vehicle and more evenly across the trailer’s axles.
