Coolum Beach, Australia (PressExposure) March 07, 2011 -- Choosing a tow hitch can be quite complicated, especially when you are looking for one that is suitable for off-road travel. In fact, many people arent aware exactly how many variables are involved until they end up in a situation where their hitch simply doesnt perform according to their expectations and they end up struggling for an hour to get their trailer hitched to their vehicle.
So, if youve never been off-road before with a trailer in tow, then the wisest course of action would be to learn as much about it as possible, before you end up bogged down and spending hours trying to reconnect your hitch. OzHitch.com is a website dedicated to helping people learn how to properly connect their vehicles for off-road travel, including how to choose the right tow hitch and tips for off-road towing.
For example, were you aware that you need to consider what angles you might encounter on your trip? Or that the connecting mechanisms of the hitch you choose can make life easier or more painful? There are so many variables involved and making the wrong decision can translate into a lot of hardship, which is why it is imperative that you do your research in advance.
OzHitch.com advocates purchasing only off-road hitches that have ADR Australian design rule approval because it is the equivalent of the Australian standards approval for cars. If you buy a tow-hitch without said approval, you are asking for trouble. This is one of the many tips you will find on OzHitch.com, a site that is the first and last resource you will ever need to help you with all your towing needs.
OzHitch.com also offers a unique hitch, designed by Norm Hudson, the sites creator, as a result of his struggles with off-road hitches that never seemed to deliver on their promises. You can learn more about this unique tow-hitch and see it in action on his website.
