Equal Weight Distribution

From lumber to excavating equipment, the weight of what you intend to tow needs to be even on the sides and from front to rear.

When weight is not centered behind your 2020 Toyota Tacoma or other vehicle, fishtailing can occur and cause accidents. While properly balanced weight may not eliminate all acts of fishtailing, it significantly improves the chances for problem-free towing.

If the bulk of the weight is too far back, it cannot anchor enough weight up front onto the hitch ball. For more information on how to better connect with your next towing experience, reach out to World Toyota in Atlanta.

Increased Momentum Requires More Time and Space to Slow, Stop

When you’ve added hundreds, if not thousands, of pounds to the back of your 2020 Toyota Tacoma, remember the basic laws of physics. Increased weight and momentum translate to the need for more time and space to brake.

The best, safest way to keep momentum on your side is to travel in the right lane as often as possible and put extra distance between you and the car in front of you. It’s also a great idea to be mindful of traffic conditions even further in front of you. Simply put, more weight translates to more room needed to brake.

Good Tires, Functional Lights Will Enhance Your Towing Experience

It seems like a no-brainer, but making sure your trailer’s tires have good tread and sufficient air is critical to safe towing. It’s also important to double-check the trailer’s lights and turn signals to make sure they’re operating in sync with the 2020 Toyota Tacoma or another vehicle you’re driving.
