Trailer Hitches and Installation
Torklift Central is your local expert for trailer hitches, custom trailer hitches, trailer hitch wiring, trailer hitch repair, motorhome hitches and 5th wheel hitches. We have been providing superior customer services to Kent, Seattle, Renton, Tacoma, Auburn and the surrounding cities since 1976. As part of our complete custom hitch fabrication, we also provide trailer hitch wiring and electrical installations on every tow package. From heavy-duty brake controllers to standard wiring harnesses, we stock all the necessary parts in-house to get the job done on-site.
On the rare occasion we don't already have a tow package for your vehicle (which means no one will), we'll develop a custom hitch on your behalf. As a licensed trailer hitch manufacturer, we'll happily design and manufacture your hitch from scratch, even for a new model year vehicle or RV. Whether you want a 2,000 pound rated hitch, or a 30,000 pound rated hitch, no job is too big or too small for our on-site certified engineering team to handle. You'll find we've already done most of the shopping for you by only carrying the highest quality parts and products on the market.
If your existing motorhome hitch is not rated high enough, our expert technicians can increase the capacity of the hitch and reinforce the frame.
Front End Mounted Trailer Hitch
For certain applications, having a trailer hitch receiver at the front of your vehicle may be convenient. For example, a front-mounted hitch allows you to easily use a boat ramp by maintaining close control of your trailer. Front mount hitches may be of any class, and are easily installed on most full-size pickup trucks, vans and SUVs. Torklift Central manufactures front mounted receiver hitches for all full size trucks and many light duty cars as well.
Extended Ball Mount or Receiver Extension
An excellent solution if your trailer hitch is too far under the spare tire, camper bumper or other item.
The most common receiver class installed on full-size pickup trucks and SUVs. These receivers have a 2-inch square receiver tube. Class 3 receivers can handle up to 6,000 pound trailers and 600 pounds of tongue weight with a weight carrying ball mount, or up to 12,000 pounds and 1,200 pounds of tongue weight with a weight distributing hitch. This generally exceeds the towing capacities of most non-commercial vehicles, so a Class 3 hitch is rarely the limiting factor when towing.
10-12k lb Dead Weight Hitches
A Class 4 hitch can carry 10,000 pounds and 1,000 pounds of tongue weight with a weight carrying hitch, or up to 12,000 and 1,200 pounds with a weight distributing hitch. Class 4 & 5 receivers use the same 2-inch receiver tube as a Class 3.
