According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), there are over 50,000 accidents every year related to towing. Towing a trailer is extremely dangerous and you must know what you’re doing prior to getting behind the wheel. Trailer sway is a serious problem that can lead to devastating injuries on the roads.
It’s important to note that weight distribution systems are recommended if the trailer’s weight is more than 50% of the towing vehicle’s weight. Additionally, electronic brake controllers are essential in order to remain safe on the roadways while towing a trailer.
