is it alright for this combination
asked by: Jim B
When choosing a weight distribution system and sway control you will want to use one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses your trailer tongue weight when loaded and ready to tow plus the weight of any gear loaded in the tow vehicle behind the rear axle.
Trailer tongue weight is usually 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight when it is loaded and ready to tow.
You will need to determine the trailer tongue weight of the 1965 Ford Mustang on the trailer, loaded and ready to be towed and any weight you will be hauling in the rear of your Kia Sedona behind the rear axle.
The 2006 Kia Sedona has a towing capacity of 3,500-lbs so that will be the most you will be able to tow with your vehicle. Even if you have a hitch that is rated for weight distribution it will not increase the towing capacity of your vehicle.
I looked up a 1965 Ford Mustang and it showed a weight of 2,500 lbs for a 6 cylinder and 2800 lbs for a eight cylinder. If you will be towing the Mustang on a trailer the weight of the trailer would have to be below 700 lbs to be able to tow your Mustang on a trailer with your Kia Sedona.
If the numbers that I researched match the numbers that you have and the trailer weighs less than 700 lbs, let me know your total weight of your trailer ready for towing and I can help you find the correct weight distribution system for your application.
I am including a link to a FAQ page on weight distribution that will help answer some questions you might have.
