A hitch can be a useful tool when overlanding for several reasons. It can be used to tow a trailer or carry a bike rack, cargo carrier, or other attachments to free up space inside the vehicle. It can also be used as an anchor point for winching or recovery, allowing you to pull your vehicle out of tricky situations or assist others in need. Additionally, some hitches can be used to mount accessories like additional lighting, storage containers, or water tanks. Ultimately, having a reliable hitch can expand the capabilities and flexibility of your overland setup.
