Towing Safety Tips

2017 Chevy Silverado 3500HD

Now that summertime is here, you will likely see a lot more people towing things with their pickups—taking boats to the lake, hauling a trailer filled with building materials, and more. If you plan on towing with your Chevrolet Silverado this summer, here are some towing safety tips.

  • Allow more time to stop. When towing something, the weight of the trailer is added to the total weight of the truck. This means it will take longer to stop. Start braking sooner than you would normally and avoid hard stops.
  • Check trailer height. When hitched together, both your truck and trailer should be nearly parallel to the ground. Do not overload the hitch.
  • Check your trailer lights. With a trailer behind your truck, your taillights will likely be obscured. Make sure all of your trailer lights are working, even in daylight.
  • Inspect your trailer. Once you have everything hooked up, do a thorough inspection of your hitch, trailer, and anything on it. In addition, you should stop and check again after 1, 10, and 100 miles in case anything comes loose while driving.
  • Bring along trailer parts. Just like a car, a trailer can break down, too. Bring along a spare tire and any other tools needed to fix your trailer.

If you need a new pickup this summer, come visit us at Wilson GM and check out the full lineup of Silverado trucks.

Stillwater Farmers’ Market

Stillwater Farmers’ Market

Getting the freshest fruits, vegetables, breads, and other produce is only possible at a farmers’ market! The Stillwater Farmers’ Market only allows vendors to sell produce they grew themselves within a limited area. Featuring products at affordable prices, many of which undercut convenience and super stores, there are plenty of reasons to head down to the Stillwater Farmers’ Market.

All produce is 100 percent locally grown, which is better for the environment. Vendors are committed to providing fresh and affordable produce, like fruits, vegetables, beef, eggs, jellies, and much more. You’ll end up with so much produce that you’ll need a full-size SUV, like the GMC Yukon, to move it all!

Located in Strickland Park on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Stillwater Farmers’ Market is open for business until August 30th. Customers can also find the market at the Stillwater Medical Center on Mondays from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. starting on May 1st.

Come fall, the market moves to the Pioneer Square parking lot on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. In winter, the market heads indoors at the Cowboy Mall on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Skip the supermarket and head down to the Stillwater Farmers’ Market for your grocery needs! We here at Wilson GM hope to see you there!
