Towing a trailer is a practical way to haul equipment, move houses, or just go on a trip while bringing all the luggage you could want. If you're not sure whether or not your truck or SUV can handle towing, then we'd recommend consulting your owner's manual or the manufacturer's website -- the vehicle's towing capacity should be listed. Most owner's manuals are also available online if you're unable to locate your own.

Most SUVs are equipped to handle towing light loads up to 3500 pounds. However, for towing larger loads, such as a boat, trailer, or farm equipment it's recommended that you use a larger vehicle. Pickup trucks usually fall into this category, especially heavy-duty trucks with V6 or V8 engines. Top pickup trucks on the consumer market right now can often tow up to 12,000 pounds.
