Towing with your truck or SUV can be a great way to haul equipment from point A to point B in or out of Ionia, MI without a ton of effort. However, it can also be a risky process if you don't know what you're getting into. In this short guide, we wanted to outline some key points to follow.

Firstly, make sure you always consult your owner's manual before towing with a trailer. You'll want to ensure you're using a trailer hitch of the proper size, as using a receiver hitch that's too small or large could lead to problems down the line. Once you're hooked up, we'd encourage you to double-check all connections to make sure everything is secure.

Before towing anything too large, consult your owner's manual to make sure you're not going over your vehicle's towing capacity. You should be able to find this information in the owner's manual.
