I am wondering about the hitch or is it something we live with?????
From what I've read most dealers just stock 1200lb bars and train their sales staff that the bars are good for all tongue weights up to 1200lbs so there is no reason to use lighter bars.
As many on this forum know this is wrong and for your 22' you should be using 400lb or 600lb bars.
