Do not Know
3. and since this is mentioned i'll assume axle weights have NOT be gathered. You assume correctly
i don't like the LOOK of either rig. Me neither
5. --??what are the bar ratings?? if they are 1000 or 1400 they appear WAY over flexed/angled... Bar rating is 1000 lbs
6.?-is that stinger a 2 inch drop or 4 inch drop? [COLOR="red"]It must be 4 inch[/COLOR
again the MEASUREMENTS matter, and the SCALE weights matter.
OR the wheel well heights can be used UNTIL the scale readings are obtained. I can do that
ok airhead ...
it would appear a 2 inch drop stinger will WORK well...
for at least ONE of the trucks...
in both truck pics the trailer NOSE looks HIGH and the screw jacks FULL UP.
and in neither do the trucks look LEVEL, or close to it.
i can't determine from the pics IF the haha is installed ideally (struts, jacks and forward droop)
but 1000 lb bars should be adequate for BOTH trucks and that trailer.
i think u need to get the 2 inch bar AND go over the INSTALL again, with the manual.
IF the trailer is LEVEL, then drops SLIGHTLY when hooked up using a 2 inch bar...
1-2 notches (inches) of turning the screw jacks should bring it back to level...
the truck needs HEIGHT measurements at the wheel wells before/after tensioning or ideally scale readings...
NONE of this really affects sway control inherent to the hitch,
but it ALL affects ride, tire and axle wear and steering control on the tv side.
there will be 10+ of this sorta hitch users at the opener, so U will get lots of advice.
i don't think howieE has a haha, but he does have a kayak...
