Many might be anticipating that our top 3 tips will all focus on purchasing a GEN-Y Hitch, which, quite frankly, would work as GEN-Y Hitch’s do help you save time and money when towing, but we wanted to give you 3 tips that will help you save time and money when it comes to towing that focus on many areas, and we are excited to share them with you… Let’s Get Started!

1.Travel at Moderate Speeds

So you want better gas mileage? Lay off the lead foot! Moderate speeds are best when towing. When you speed up, you fight 41lfzqwef1l  sx300  300x225
against the wind, and this causes your vehicle to work harder and use gas faster. It might seem odd that a “time saving” tip includes “slowing down”, but it’s like I tell my kids, slow is fast and fast is slow! (this is USUALLY in relation to doing dishes, but it works here too!) 

2. Fill ‘Em Up! 

Ten minutes a day checking your tires (pressure, wear, etc.) could allow you to save big bucks at the pump and HUGE time by knowing exactly what your tires look like! There is nothing more frustrating than being on a schedule and having to deal with a flat tire! This is a good practice to get into whether you are towing or not.

There are many things to take into account when it comes to buying a hitch for your vehicle. How strong is it? How versatile is it? What is its construction like? What do others think about it? Is it a good value? (notice we didn’t say ‘cheap’..the cheapest is rarely the best!). It is so much more than just looking at a name and kicking the hitch on your friend’s truck. If you can’t read about them online, and if they are n0t getting good reviews on social media sites (not getting ANY reviews is just as bad by the way), then you may end up with a hitch that simply doesn’t fit your lifestyle.
