    Hey all, my old lady and I are going to be looking at a couple campers today and early this week. Most of which are 21-24’ camper trailers with a dry weight around 4000/4500lbs.

    I want to pick up a 2-5/16hitch at my local tractor supply but I’m unsure how much of a drop I would need. I have a bone stock 17’ SR5 TRD CC 5.7 with the tow package (9,900lbs cap.)

    Just seeing what you guys are running with similar size/weight camper trailers.

    Look for a weight distribution hitch. I have the equalizer, but they have many options for drop downs. This will give you sway control and load balancing across the truck.

    Won’t really know how long until you measure though.

    Local availablity for a weight distribution hitch doesn’t look good for me right now.

    Probably should have looked into this beforehand lol

    Does anyone have any experience with the Curt WDH?

    Check etrailer.com out. They gave me free shipping on the equalizer and it’s like 100lbs of steel. Not sure when you’re needing it though.

    Can’t beat free shipping!

    Potentially I’ll be needing a hitch this afternoon so I’ll have to pick up a standard one to get it home if we buy it.

    Luckily It’s only 20 minutes from me

    If your buying a camper have the dealer recommend you a hitch. My trailer is significantly heavier than the one you’re thinking about getting so I went with a dealer installed weight distribution hitch.
