The original receiver hitch on my truck has a rating plate with two sets of info
1. weight carring says 5000lbs ...600 lbs tongue
2. weight distribution says 12,000lbs 1500lbs tongue
does it say with a weight distribution hitch it is rated for a maximum of 12000
pull weight and 1500
maxium tongue weight....?????
I am just double checking...trying to decide if i want to trust this OEM hitch or replace it with a Class IV Curt hitch ....
I have had the original hitch twist off once and replaced it with another OEM when pulling my previous airstream.and then pulled it another 50,000 miles
Having just purchased another airstream with a GVWR of 7300 lbs and a published tongue weight of 900 lbs.... I am wondering...It has a hensley hitch and previously i had a equalizer.....
and i know, on my previous airstream ..a 25fb ,after weighing it...i had a tongue weight of 1200 lbs.....so i believe this new trailer will have at least 1200 lbs on the tongue.....
so what do i do????
