Applications - Towing

Towing trailers, boats or caravans with incorrect vehicle setup can cause vehicle damage and is potentially very dangerous.

Vehicles used for towing are subject to extreme forces. For safe and efficient towing, critical attention must be given to key factors such as load capacities and stopping-power of the vehicle. Typically, stock-standard vehicles direct from the factory provide a minimum standard of towing ability. Common limitations include low trailer weight towing capacity, inadequate braking systems and poor handling under towing conditions.

Safety and comfort are critical factors for vehicles used for towing. The Ultimate Suspension can provide the ultimate setup for your vehicle. Whether your vehicle is used for occasional towing, regular towing or touring with a caravan, contact us for a solution designed to meet your needs and to empower you to tow efficiently, safely and legally.

The Ultimate Suspension have 45 years of experience with providing customised solutions for vehicles used for towing including GVM upgrades and brake system upgrades. CONTACT US

Example Scenario - A Toyota Landcruiser with a factory GVM of 3350kg carrying a total weight of accessories and a full tank of fuel (755kg) will be 145kg OVERWEIGHT, not taking into account the ball weight of a trailer or caravan.

The subject vehicle is uninsured at this weight and the stopping power will be seriously diminished. The vehicle handling will be compromised as will the safety of the driver and any occupants.

This example of a popular tow vehicle applies to most other vehicles used for towing throughout Australia. GVM upgrades are not available for all vehicles available in Australia however custom suspensions systems can be designed for any vehicle to improve towing performance.
