Large vehicles, like pick up trucks, light trucks and similar vehicles are preferred by those who are into hauling and towing large amount of loads. For this type of job, the accessory needed would be a hitch that is attached at the rear fascia of the automotive. The hitch is a mechanical device where you connect the towing lines onto. Hidden Hitch offers these hitches in different categories and classes depending on the amount of weight to be carried or hauled. Class 1 & 2 hitches offers towing capabilities between 2000 lbs. to 3500 lbs. Class 2, 4 & 5 doesn't differ much and are used for a lot of heavier towing.
The Class V hitch's difference from the first two succeeding classes of hitches comes on the maximum amount of weight it can haul. The Class V hitch is also available in a weight carrying option or a weight distributing type. To know more about this, refer to the hitch's specification and the vehicles features. Anyway, the maximum hauling weight capabilities of the weight carrying hitch of this class reaches up to 12,000 lbs. gross trailer weight and a maximum trailer tongue weight of 1200 lbs., while the distributing weight option has a gross trailer weight of up to 17,000 lbs. gross trailer weight with a maximum 1700 lbs. trailer tongue weight. This type of hitch uses a 2-1/2' receiver which is one of the main differences that it has from Class 3&4. But, similar to the other classes, the Class V also requires the use of a hitch ball and a ball mount of the same or greater rating and only attaches to the vehicles frame only.
