Hitches

It is important to have the correct hitch equipment. Crosswinds, large trucks going by, and rough roads are a few reasons why the right hitch is needed.

• The rear bumper on the vehicle is not intended for hitches.

Do not attach rental hitches or other bumper-type hitches to it.

Use only a frame-mounted hitch that does not attach to the bumper.

• Will any holes be made in the body of the vehicle when the trailer hitch is installed? If so, then be sure to seal the holes when the hitch is removed. If the holes are not sealed, dirt, water, and deadly carbon monoxide (CO) from the exhaust may get into the vehicle. See Engine Exhaust on page 9‑22.
