Ready to hit the open roads of Vidalia, GA to enjoy some quality family-time? Perhaps you've had a fishing trip on the back burner that's long overdue and you're interested in finally reeling in a trophy-sized stiped bass or bluegill that's eluded you year after year? If you hear the lake or beach calling your name you're not alone. Here are our tips for ensuring your Ford truck is fit to tow your watercraft this summer season:

  1. Review Your Ford Truck's Towing Capacity and Limits: Whether you've recently just picked up a handful of new jet skis or you're simply preparing to uncover your well-loved fishing vessel once more for a relaxing season spent out on Lake Lanier, you need to ensure that what you're planning to move isn't too much of a burden for your Ford truck or SUV. Check the inside of your vehicle's driver's side door for a small sticker or stamp, or consult your model's owner's manual for specific towing capacities and weight limitations.
  2. Have Your Ford Truck or SUV Serviced by Factory-Trained Technicians Before Setting Off: It's likely been a fair amount of time since you've towed your boat and recreational equipment out to Allatoona Lake or Lake Oconee. Your Ford truck is surely built to shoulder quite a bit of weight, but it's imperative that you travel with absolute assurance without compromising the safety of others on the road. There's a good chance that your vehicle's alignment was thrown askew since last towing season, or at the very least your vehicle likely is in need of an oil change or coolant flush. To that end, Paul Thigpen Ford offers convenient and quick Ford service solutions to drivers throughout the Baxley and Metter area.
  3. Consider Touring a New Ford Truck or SUV for Optimal Towing Capabilities: Perhaps your truck or SUV has seen its better days and you're interested in leasing or financing a new Ford model? Our Ford dealership near Lyons, GA offers a full range of rugged Ford vehicles like the Ford F-150, F-250, F-350 while further showcasing a series of family-friendly boat-movers like the Ford Expedition and Explorer.

There's no better time than now to prepare for whatever plans lay in store for you this summer. Join us at Paul Thigpen Ford to check off all the boxes on your towing to-do list.
