Tips for Mountain Towing


With a new trailer from TrailerShowroom.com, you will undoubtedly be anxious to explore! If your plans include a trip to elevated terrains, be aware that it takes a few extra precautions.
  • Go down the mountain NO faster than you went up. If there is a mantra for this type of towing, this is it! Because your trailer load will be pushing you along, maintaining a slow, but steady speed is critical for maintaining control of the towing vehicle. Use a low gear and travel no faster than 25 to 30 mph when possible.
  • Avoid riding the brakes, especially on the way down. This can cause your brakes to fail. Instead of constantly depressing the brake pedal, slow down to a safe speed-again and then ease off. Allow them to cool and repeat until you are down the incline.
  • Find out if your vehicle is equipped with a Tow/Haul feature.
  • Maintain a safe distance from any vehicles in front of you. 
  • Do not worry about creeping along - be safe. Sometimes doing the right thing will mean that a convoy of irritated drivers forms behind you. Take this in stride, be patient and stick to your guns. No one can get to his or her destination without mindful driving.
  • Be aware of the weather - The ups and downs of mountain driving can mean that one moment you have excellent visibility and the next you are enveloped in pea-soup thick fog, or wet or icy conditions. Check the highway weather forecast before you go and stay tuned to the latest info via radio.
Make sure your vehicle and trailer are ready for such a trip - Mountain driving puts extra wear and tear on vehicles. It also demands that each component is in the best working order possible. Before settling in behind the wheel, do a safety check and focus on these points:

  • All mirrors 
  • All lights
  • All systems synced: brakes and lights
  • Horn works
  • Radio works
  • Hitches secure
  • Tires in excellent shape, including spares
  • Coolants and fluids full and have extras on hand-including wiper fluid
  • Cloths for wiping away moisture and an ice scraper
If you have any questions or want to learn about any of our custom options that would make your next trip to the mountains a cakewalk instead of a thrill ride, please give us a call at:

Each customer who selects one of our fine trailers, all manufactured in America, has the opportunity to pick and choose from over 400 custom options.
