If you’ve finally decided to purchase that boat you’ve coveted for a while, you will need to verify some safety issues before towing it. The first area of concern is your vehicle’s towing capacity. Include the tow weight allowance as well as the tongue weight. Once you’ve established that your vehicle, the hitch, and the trailer are compatible, you can move on to other aspects of the tow package.

Inspect the trailer and make sure that it can securely transport the boat. Don’t forget to include the tires and lug nuts. From there, run through the lighting system. Verify that the brake lights, tail lights, and turn signals are all operable. It’s an added safety feature to also include towing mirrors for improved visibility.
