GMC and Chevy Towing Equipment: Improve Capabilities

GMC and Chevy towing equipment

If you want to improve your Chevy or GMC truck, there is a wide variety of GMC and Chevy towing equipment — from brake controllers to hitches. A number of accessories can improve performance and capability. These are just some of the many accessories you should consider getting if you need to tow and haul in the future.

Some of the most popular equipment includes brake controllers and hitches. A brake controller mounts to the dash area and can delay or moderate the trailer’s electrical braking system. Gale Banks Engineering offers a popular Brake Tuner device, while Tekonsha® has a much more affordable brake controller.

In terms of hitches, there are many options to choose from. Go with something that is durable, flexible, and stays connected to the chassis. CURT trailer hitches are among the top on the market, including the Curt Double Lock hitches. Go Rhino® and Trimax™ hitches come in handy as well, but we strongly encourage using Chevy or GMC hitches.

If you need fifth-wheel accessories, CURT and B&W offer great bang for your buck with high-quality fifth-wheel accessories. For instance, the A25 Fifth Wheel Hitch with a GM Puck System costs around $1200, but it will allow you to tow heavy loads like campers.

Welcome to the Hight Chevrolet Buick GMC Blog

Hight Chevrolet Buick GMC

There aren’t many automotive dealerships that have been serving their communities for more than a century, but Hight Chevrolet Buick GMC is an exception. In business since 1911, the Hight family still aims to provide the best service and quality vehicles to the area. Now, we’d like to thank the community, and welcome you to the Hight Chevrolet Buick GMC blog!

Walter Hight started out selling potatoes, hay, straw, and hemlock bark. In 1911, he started selling Fords and kicked off what would become a family legacy. At the time, Ford vehicles came disassembled, six in a box car.

Soon after, Hight moved to selling Buicks produced and driven straight from the production line. It was at this point that he came up with the Hight tradition: “You put us first in sales, we put you first in service.”

Walter’s toughest obstacle to creating a successful dealership was converting people from horse and buggies to motor vehicles. To do this, he made sure every vehicle came with a personal driving lesson. Vehicles didn’t come with a large manual, so customers had to trust the salesman to teach them everything about the vehicle.

Now in its fourth generation, the Hight family continues to run the central Maine dealership. Our sales team remains vigilant to provide unbeatable dedication to the customer. Stop in to see just how we treat each and every customer that comes through the door.
