Transferring Hitch to New Tow Vehicle?


Towing a 2019 Sport 22FB with an Equalizer brand hitch

Traded my Tacoma for a Tundra

I'm sure I'll have some adjusting to do but how do I proceed initially in regards to ball and hitch height? Should I just hook it up and take those measurements as being under load a consideration or try to match my previous TV ball height to start?

I read and watched videos on Equalizer's web site and it doesn't give me a starting point, only minor tweaks once close....

Any other advice welcomed.

Went from Highlander to Mercedes GL for new 22. Measured ball hight on Toyota and then put on MZB and found it was 2 inches lower. Drove MZB to dealer with hitch and they lowered it. Husky brand and simple for them to drop the ball down one hole

We recently installed our Equal-i-zer on our Tacoma. On the Equal-i-zer page buried within the support section, a couple of menus down, there are some measurements and guidelines you take to get your initial height settings for the ball on the shank.
We found this got us really close and into the right holes on the shank, then it was fine-tuning from there:

Hope this helps, and congrats on the Tundra We've loved all of our Tacomas over the years!

PS: Though you should measure your own Coupler Height, the coupler on our 19' was at 17"...

I towed a 22 Sport with an Equalizer hitch. I found out that with proper loading of the car and trailer I didn't need the hitch anymore. It tows fine without the hitch and of course it is a lot easier to hitch up.

Reused the Hensley Arrow hitch from our 2013 25FB International Serenity onto our 2015 23D International Serenity we upgraded to 15” wheels and the same size Michelin tires we had on the 25FB. Used same 2007 Mercedes ML320 CDI turbo diesel tow vehicle. No adjustments were necessary. The 23D scales 6,069 pounds camping loaded and the Mercedes is happier with that load.

Short Answer: Measure your height from ground from old one, then match that to your new one.
