Rigid Hitch Class III hitches have a Weight Carrying (WC) rating, and may also have a Weight Distributing (WD) rating, depending on the vehicle and hitch specifications. Not all Class III hitches are rated to do both. Please see the "Specifications" for the Weight Carrying and Weight Distributing (if applicable) ratings for this hitch.
In order to use a hitch to its maximum weight carrying capacity, a ball mount and hitch ball of the same rating or higher is required. To use the weight distributing capacity of the hitch, a weight distribution hitch system is required. All of these items are sold separately. Class III hitches attach primarily to the vehicle frame. Always consult your owner's manual to determine your vehicle's maximum towing capacity.
All Rigid Hitch receivers and ball mounts are designed and manufactured in our ISO 9001:2015 certified facility in Burnsville, Minnesota, and are backed by a Limited Five Year Warranty. Rigid Hitch is a family-owned business that has been proudly serving the needs of the towing industry since 1957.
