How to Determine if a Vehicle Can Use a Weight Distribution Hitch  


Can I use a weight distribution system on my 2015 CV Tradesman? I have a 2inch class 3 reciever.

Most likely yes, you can use weight distribution on your 2015 Ram CV. However, you will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to make sure your vehicle is rated for weight distribution. There also will be a sticker on your hitch that lists this info as well.

The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use.
