Ford Truck Towing Guide
  • Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) refers to the total weight of a tow vehicle when fully loaded.

  • Gross Tongue Weight is the maximum load that can be placed on the hitch ball by a coupler.

  • Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) comprises the combined weight from the trailer and the tow vehicle and all its contents from passengers to fuel and equipment.

  • Gross Axle Weight Rating refers to a single axle and the maximum amount of weight it can support.


Ford Truck Towing Safety

  • Make sure the tire pressures for each wheel are at the appropriate level to avoid a blowout from the heavy load.

  • The hitch and ball need to have a secure bit, so picking the correct size is crucial. Put the safety pin in as a precaution to prevent the hitch from coming loose.

  • Use chains to attach your Ford model with the trailer to keep it from hitting the road and going free.

  • Maintain a stable load by keeping all material level and equally spaced. This measure will make towing with a Ford truck a safe experience.

  • Before heading out, do a test of your brake lights, hazard lights, and turn signals out of courtesy for other motorists.
