I was emailed by someone today and I really didn't have a answer for him that had a reason why. Maybe someone here could help. Trailer 410 lbs tongue weight TV 500 lbs hitch weight rating When he bought his trailer the PO gave him a Reese WDH that he used with his Dakota pickup. I looked at the pieces of the WHD and didn't have the correct answers The round tube spring bars are marked as 550 lbs .......... is that each? The mount is rated for 12000 lbs max trailer. I think that this hitch is way too big for his setup. I asked if his pickup settled when hitched up and he told be he towed the trailer home without the WDH and the truck retained its original bumper height. I'm just guessing here, but I think he has a 1,100 lb WDH ....... thats for a lot of tongue weight! What do you think? He also asked if a WDH could be used with only one bar? I really don't know.
