I believe you hit on something with tires. I was just at a Goodyear store who sells
Endurance Tires and the new tire has 65 Max in huge letters on the sidewalls. For
Over a year we ran 80 cold and popped rivets. After the repairs I lowered to 70 and noticed interior items not bouncing around as much
Iíll go cat scale the truck before the trailer is hooked up. I know from better weight I was not over weight on the front axle. 5 washers were in the head pin
I do not have an answer to your original question but we have not had any issues with our 2017 27'FC and an Equalizer hitch. We have yet to pop a rivet, though I keep thinking we will! We have mostly been on reasonable roads but certainly have hit some poorly repaired bridges that bounced around things on the inside (cushion on the floor). So I'm not convinced that the hitch is inherently too stiff.
We towed for the first two years with an F150 and the last 18 months with an F250 diesel.
