If you’ve never towed anything before, we’re here to provide you with insight at Lester Glenn Subaru. Not to mention, our certified technicians can install a trailer hitch and receiver on your 2018-2019 Subaru model in no time. Whether you’re hauling equipment to a job site or planning a weekend camping trip, owning a vehicle that can tow comes in handy.
Before you hit the road, we suggest you check the brake lights and turn signals on your trailer for safety and legal purposes. It’s crucial that these components are working because other drivers need to know when you’re stopping or turning. You might think to rely on your vehicle’s taillights or signals, but more than likely, your load will be covering that area. When towing, it’s important to keep an eye on the load you’re hauling. You can do this by adjusting the side mirrors in a way that allows you to see both the trailer and the road. Also, wider turns are preferred, so you can keep the trailer on its intended path.
We must add, towing capacities can differ from model to model. For instance, the 2019 Subaru Forester has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500-lbs., allowing you to haul a small fishing boat, a couple of off-road vehicles, or your riding lawnmower. Other vehicles might have a lighter or heavier towing capacity. Here at your Toms River Subaru dealership, we encourage you to keep this in mind, so you can avoid damaging your vehicle.
