Frequently asked questions

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Reach out to our customer support team.

How do I know if my hitch is Class III?
Typically the hitch receiver itself will have a sticker with that information printed on it. If that has been removed, search around on the hitch for a part number that could looked up to find out the Class of the hitch. If there are no indicators as to the model or class of your hitch receiver, we recommend stopping by a shop local to you that installs hitch receivers as they might be able to identify this by characteristics of the receiver.
Do I need the EXO Lit Kit to be road legal using the Swingbase?
We believe it ultimately comes down to the area where you live. We have received feedback from some customers that in the area they are located in the authorities do enforce license places being visible with a rack system installed on the vehicle. In the area we are based in, we have never received that feedback from our local customers that it is an issue. To be safe, the EXO Lit Kit is definitely a great option to ensure you are road legal and your brake lights are not obstructed.
