Tongue weight is a constant and does not magically disappear.

Why would we measure the tongue weight at the end of the shank when the tongue ends at the ball coupler. Or if we are asking if the PP/H hitch adds weight, why would we not compare the weight of another hitch with a similar length shank to the PP/H configuration? Why do other designs not use a long shank if it reduces tongue weight? Pat

Will Pro Pride Hitch Add Tongue Weight?

Thanks, Andrew


It adds 200 lbs. My factory tongue weight is 903 lbs. With the ProPride attached, including the stinger, it measured 1100 lbs. using a tongue scale and verified on the CAT scales.

Did you validate the 903 lbs with a scale?

Unfortunately no. I did not have the scale before the PP was installed. However, I know the shipping weight of the PP (including stinger) is 200 lb. I was actually surprised when the scale read 1,100 lbs - mathematically confirming the advertised tongue weight. Plus the fact the CAT scale showed an increase of 1,140 lbs. on the rear TV axel with the weight distribution removed confirmed the tongue scale reading. I consider anything within +\- 100 lbs. close enough given the large potential for inaccuracies across the measurement methods. That being said, the shipping weight of the hitch is most likely very accurate.
