When towing a trailer or camper behind your tow vehicle, it leaves no room behind for any hitch accessories to be functional. This is where if you have a front hitch you can get accessories that will increase space or be helpful to you and your vehicle. This article will give just a few examples of the accessories that we carry that may be helpful to you on your next road trip.
If you own an SUV or van and have a roof rack, you are more than likely using it for extra space to put things while traveling. If you have ever struggled to reach your things on the roof, then you know how frustrating it can be. A

onto your hitch would be the best solution to visibly displaying your license plate. Another accessory that serves a great purpose is a spare tire mount
. When towing a trailer it is next to impossible to put your spare in the back. Instead of not bringing the tire with you, in risk of a flat, this mount will carry the tire mounted to the front hitch of the vehicle. The photo in this article represents how this mount is used.
The last product to discuss in this article is the
Curt Skid Shield

It can also be used as a decorative piece like a cover for your receiver. It will also stop moisture and debris from getting inside the hitch and making it harder to install accessories.
