What Is Trailer Tongue Length

Trailer Tongue Length refers to the length of the tongue that extends from the trailer to the hitch on the towing vehicle. It is crucial for maintaining stability and control while towing.


This calculator works in two modes, basic and advance for calculating the trailer tongue length:

1. Basic Formula

Trailer Tongue Length=Width of Tire×2\text{Trailer Tongue Length} = \text{Width of Tire} \times 2

2. Advanced Formula

Optimal Trailer Tongue Length
=(Width of Tire 1+Width of Tire 22)+Distance Between Tires\text{Optimal Trailer Tongue Length} = \left( \frac{\text{Width of Tire 1} + \text{Width of Tire 2}}{2} \right) + \text{Distance Between Tires}


1. Basic Calculation Variables

  • Width of Tire: The width of one tire (in inches).

2. Advanced Calculation Variables

  • Width of Tire 1: The width of the first tire (in inches).
  • Width of Tire 2: The width of the second tire (in inches).
  • Distance Between Tires: The distance between the two tires (in inches).

Calculation Example

1. Basic Calculation Example

Variable Value (inches)
Width of Tire 20

Using the basic formula:

Trailer Tongue Length=20×2=40inches\text{Trailer Tongue Length} = 20 \times 2 = 40 \, \text{inches}

2. Advanced Calculation Example

Variable Value (inches)
Width of Tire 1 18
Width of Tire 2 22
Distance Between Tires 10

Using the advanced formula:

Optimal Trailer Tongue Length
=(18+222)+10=20+10=30inches\text{Optimal Trailer Tongue Length} = \left( \frac{18 + 22}{2} \right) + 10 = 20 + 10 = 30 \, \text{inches}
