All You Need To Know About Trailer Hitch Covers

If you haul other vehicles or wagons in the back of your vehicle with a hitch, it is recommended that you purchase a trailer hitch cover. Before you decide a trailer hitch cover is not right for you, it can help to learn more about them and the benefits of having one. 

Show Your Personality to the World

Trailer hitch covers come in many styles. Show your support for your favorite college or professional sports teams. If you are a veteran or have a family member in the service, show your pride with a trailer hitch cover indicating that. You can even get one custom made if you can't find a used or pre-made one that fits you perfectly.

Protecting Yourself

Uncovered hitches have the potential to be a source of injury. To adults or older kids, it is easy to forget about their existence until you smack your shin against one. For toddlers, injuries may be more severe, since the hitch is just about eye level.

Protecting Your Hitch

If your hitch is uncovered, it will be vulnerable to debris. Falling objects may leave scratches or chips. The hole may also get full of leaves in windy, stormy weather. By keeping your hitch protected, it will be easier when you need to hook something up, since you won't have to clean it before use. If your hitch is left unprotected for a long period of time, it will only cost a lot of money to replace the entire hitch.

The good news is that they come in two sizes. Once you choose the correct size, it is easy to work with. It is easier if you get the hitch cover when you purchase the hitch itself though, so you can make sure it fits right away without extra work of measuring later on.


A trailer hitch cover will not only protect your hitch against rust, but a shiny cover will distract onlookers from the rust that may already exist on or around the hitch. It makes for a great conversation starter. Also, your vehicle will not look out of place if you decide to go to a fancy restaurant for dinner. 

Add Extra Features 

Some hitch covers add extra functionality, such as foldout steps. Foldout steps can come in hand if you happen to be a shorter individual. 

When it comes to benefits, personality, functionality, and a lesser risk of injury go a long way.
