Selecting a Trailer Hitch for a 2008 Pontiac G6 Towing a Cargo Trailer


Is this hitch able to pull a uhaul cargo trailer.


Expert Reply:

Per the 2008 Pontiac G6 owner manual the maximum weight of a trailer used should not exceed 1,000 pounds . So as long as the cargo trailer you use is less than 1,000 pounds when fully loaded you can tow it using your G6. Even though the hitch is rated higher, you're always limited by your lowest rated component, which in this case is the vehicle.

If you don't already have everything else you need to tow a trailer with your G6 I recommend the Tekonsha wiring # 118439 to power the trailer's lights, ball mount # 36065 which has a 5 inch rise to help with ground clearance, and either # 19256 for a 1-7/8 inch hitch ball or # 19258 for a 2 inch. The ball mount includes the pin and clip you need.
