What are the towing requirements?

  • Hitches can typically be installed for < $200
  • Trailers weigh typically less than 1000 lbs
  • Must have proof of Insurance for towing vehicle

Towing options:

Having towing capabilities added to your personal vehicle is a great idea and not that expensive. If you’re a DYI person, you can probably find a tow bar kit to fit your vehicle. These are bolted to your frame and might be found at etrailer.com .

If you want a reliable local company to install a trailer hitch, we recommend Boulder RV. Tell them it’s to tow a Teardrop trailer from Colorado Teardrops that weighs less than a 1000 lbs.

A typical rent-a-car provider doesn’t allow you to tow a trailer with any of their rental vehicles. However, here in Boulder we have three UHaul Trunk rental companies. They offer Pickup Truck & Van rentals and allow you to tow our Teardrops.
