Curt Updates “Understanding Towing Resource”

Eau Claire, Wisconsin-based Curt Manufacturing has made massive improvements to its Understanding Towing resource.

Comprised of the Towing 101 beginner’s guide and an extensive Towing Glossary, Understanding Towing is a resource for dealers and consumers alike.

The new Towing 101 is a basic guide to the complete towing experience. It is made up of ten chapters, featuring detailed information, videos, diagrams, and charts. It covers everything from basic towing components to safe practices on the road.

Towing 101 also includes step-by-step walkthroughs on selecting a trailer hitch, installing it on the vehicle, hooking up a trailer, and much more.

The entire guide is available on the Curt website and can be downloaded in PDF format, using the links throughout.
