2000 Ford Expedition Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 8k Trailer


Hi there... I have a 2000 Expedition 5.4L V8 engine. It has a tow package with the following specs: 5000lb weight carry and 8800lb weight distribution. I am looking at purchasing a Creekside Travel Trailer this is rated at 6800lb dry and 8000lb fullly loaded. What weight distribution hitch would you recommend I purchase from you in order to safely allow my vehicle to tow this travel trailer? Thank you for your assistance and guidance on this matter.


Expert Reply:

Based on the weights you listed for your travel trailer the weight distribution system I would recommend is the Reese Trunnion system part # RP66542 that you referenced.

This system has a tongue weight range that would match up perfectly to the tongue weight your trailer would end up having when loaded.

For a 2 inch ball you would want part # A-90 and for a 2-5/16 inch ball # 19286.
