A week ago, I picked up an abused '73 Sovereign
. It came sans the WD bars, although it has the attachments on the two parts of the tongue "A-frame" to attach bars. There is an anti-sway bar, but nothing on my hitch to which to clamp it. I have an F250 Super Duty 4x4. I used a straight (no drop down) bar with a 2 5/16" ball. The trailer and truck were level...and I drove the 70 miles to my house -- carefully. I stopped after thirty miles at the first tire store on my route to put four new tires on it, 'cause the two on the front axle were riding on the bias ply!
I have two questions (for now): How do you determine the tongue weight? Are pieces and parts of old WD hitches available, or should I be thinking an entirely new rig.
