Joe Riexinger, Regional Trainer for Cequent (Reese, Draw-Tite, Hidden Hitch) talks tow ratings and proper equipment at ProPickup Truck Expo 2012
Towing with pickups is a big part of the construction and contractors trades, municipalities and DOTs across the country. It’s also a serious liability issue when the tow vehicle isn’t set up properly to tow trailers that weigh more than 5,000 pounds.
Towing safety and avoiding accidents and related law suits starts with the vehicle tow rating.
Riexinger takes the Smart Session attendees at ProPickup Truck Expo 2012 in Dallas, Texas through the salient points of getting the right trailering setup.
