We’re on the Ball with Trailer Hitches


Trailer Hitch BallTrailer hitches are a really great product. They can be used for towing trailers, 5th wheels, and equipment, or they can add extra utility to your vehicle by hauling cargo, bikes, skis and more. As smaller, fuel efficient vehicles become more popular, we think there will be a greater need for trailer hitches in the future, so we’ve stepped up our game and revamped our trailer hitches shopping guide with some new information to help you make an informed purchase decision.  In the new and improved shopping guide, you’ll find a breakdown of the various components of a trailer hitch and towing system, as well as an overview of the brands we carry and a top searches query.  Our goal is to provide something that is useful, so if you have any questions or see something that could be improved, please feel free to let us know!

AutoAnything Weekly Product Review: Curt Hitches


We here at AutoAnything love cars and trucks. That’s why we are in the business of selling performance car and truck parts. This blog is something we do on the side to help you (and us) stay on top of the car industry and all it’s wonders. To further that pursuit, we are going to start having weekly reviews of a new product or product line that we just picked up. Bare with me, it’ll be short and sweet: for our first-ever weekly product review, I’ll be covering the Curt trailer hitch.

Curt Manufacturing has been making hitches for over ten years, so they know how to make a strong hitch that withstands the tests of time. Every Curt hitch is robotically welded for perfect fitment and incredible strength. You can even get custom colors to better match the look and feel of your vehicle. And to help control anything you might want to tow, the Curt weight distribution hitch will spread the load more evenly across your tires, enhancing your steering and braking abilities. Strength is an important aspect of every trailer hitch; the last thing you want to do is drop your load unintentionally. Curt 5th wheel hitch and gooseneck hitches are no different in terms of tough construction, but they also include extra features like spherical axle bearings and quiet locking mechanisms to kill any squeaks and noises you might be getting from hauling a 20,000 lb. load.

No matter what you need to tow, Curt hitches are as solid as they come and should provide you with many years of reliable towing, which makes them the editors-pick from the Trailer Hitches & Towing department. Thats all I’ve got for you today, feel free to leave any questions in the comments box.
