Weight Distribution System For Trailer With 4400-lbs Total Weight Capacity

Question:

Interested in the Curt Weight Distribution System w/ Friction Sway Control - Round - 10,000 lbs GTW. We have a 2014 Chevy Tahoe and will be pulling a 2015 keystone hideout travel trailer model 185lhs. Dry weight of trailer is 3327 lbs....with 1068 lbs additional load capacity. I added 100 lbs additional for tongue weight to account for dogs in the back of car. Think this product fits the bill? Also, any special tools required for installation?

The best way to determine what system will work for you is to know what your total tongue weight is. The total tongue weight is the tongue weight of your fully-loaded-ready-to-tow trailer added to the weight of any cargo you place behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. You will then want to find a system where your total tongue weight falls near the middle of the tongue weight range for the system. Getting a system that is too small will be useless, but getting a system that is too big will result in a stiff, uncomfortable experience.

If your total tongue weight is between 550 to 750-lbs then the Curt Weight Distribution System # C17322 would work well for you. If you find your total tongue weight is outside of those numbers let me know and I will be glad to make a suggestion that will work best for you.
