Curt Weight Distribution System Recommendation for Trailer that Weighs 7,500 lbs


2014 ford f150 xlt 4x4 5.0 Will this part be correct to tow a 28 foot travel camper 7,500lbs


Expert Reply:

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.

Since your trailer is 7,500 lbs most likely your tongue weight is going to be between 750 lbs and 1,125 lbs. So the part # C17500 could work if your tongue weight comes in on the lower end of that. Otherwise you'd need to bump up to the # C17501 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,500 lbs.
