Atlanta Area Tow Experts

Andrew T is often mentioned as a towing expert in Ontario. Can anyone recommend someone that is at least competent in the Atlanta area? We would like to have our hitch arrangement adjusted but don't know where to go.

D-I-Y is about the best way to go. The "CAT Scale" thread is a generic must-read (non hitch specific, overall). CAN AM excels at custom hitch receivers, but a name brand hitch and "ordinary" TV can be set up by about anyone if following hitch and vehicle manufacturer instructions. Videos online as well.

Rough it in at home (level ground) using fender measurements, and then spend a couple of hours at a truck stop using a CAT Scale to dial it in (restore Front Axle to the unhitched weight with the TV loaded for travel values). The scale work is the part which really matters. TV tire pressure, etc, is also from that.

Dealers have no real interest, IMO. They'll sign off as "good enough" a combination that still needs work.

If the Jeep Commander is what you are using, then contact Andrew_T for his insights as well.

There will be a group of us camping at Hard Labor Creek SP on Nov9-11 if you would like to join us. I am sure collectively we can answer questions for you and help with your setup.
