Your truck or RV most likely did not come with a stock front bumper tow hitch, but maybe it should have. Mounting a hitch to the front of your truck or RV has benefits.
- You efficiently perform work in front of you instead of behind your back.
- Front mounts give you precision control while trying to position a trailer in a tight spot or boat ramp.
- Front-mounted hitches keep bike racks from blocking a truck’s tailgate
- Using a Front Hitch keeps the rear hitch-free for trailer or other use.
Front-mounted hitches are sometimes referred to as a front bumper hitch, although the bolt to the vehicle frame’s underside, just below the front bumper. They are very similar to rear-mounted hitches but are located at the front. When shopping for a front hitch, you will find there are Custom and Universal models.
Custom-made front hitches are designed to fit a specific popular truck or RV model, while universal front mount hitches are made to fit a wide variety of vehicles. I always recommend going with a custom-fit hitch if one is available. Custom-fit hitches are typically easier to install. They tend to have less hardware and a guaranteed fit. Most are rated Class III and have a receiver opening to accept a 2″ x 2″ shank ball mount or bike rack and can handle up to a 3,000 lbs towing capacity.
Front Hitch Uses
Front hitches are commonly used for hitch mounted:
- Bike Racks
- Snow Plows
- Kayak Racks
- Motorcycle Carriers
- Cargo Carriers for Generators and Coolers
- Tow Hooks
