Weight Distribution Setup for 12 inches of Rise and Bolt on Brackets due to Frame Interference

Question:

I am towing a 5500 lb. trailer off a 48inch reese towbar extension Truck is 2015 Ford F450 trailer is Aluma 1026 I need: 12inch lift and 36inch to bracket mount on trailer I see: most spring bars go back 28-30.5 inches...so is there a system that will give me 12inch lift and 36inch spring bars?

Helpful Expert Reply:

We have one shank that can do 12 inches of rise. For that you would want the Curt part # C17125 flipped in the rise position.

Sounds like you have some frame rail interference above your frame channel. The solution for that is to use bolt on brackets like the # RP58305 which allow you to bolt to the side of the frame and not require clearance above the frame.

Considering the weight of your trailer the # RP66021 would be what you need as it has a tongue weight range of 400-800 lbs.

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