Pin weight was only 1700lbs. Trailer gvwr 15,500.
That being said, we've had no troubles other than our aforementioned Louisiana roads. I'm going with Timbrens.
1700 lbs pin on 15,500 lbs 5er is less than 12% pin weight, normally pin weights on 5er that heavy runs 20% plus. What model 5er gives you than low of pin weight?
My 11,180lbs 5er has a pin weight of 2780 lbs and that from weighing on scales and not guessing.
