Yes, the smaller would be better. The camper brochure shows a dry hitch weight of 377 lbs. Add the battery and propane. This particular camper has the bed in the front so I don't see too much more weight up front except for the through storage area. Hopefully I can keep it below 600 lbs. I probably should wait to order. I'll check with the dealer next week for his thoughts.

On edit: Depending on what your tow vehicle is, it is possible that you may not even need a WD hitch. Our old Kodiak K215 had a loaded tongue weight of 500lbs +/- 20lbs depending how we loaded it, I towed it with my 04 F150 with no WD hitch and it towed great.

I'll second the Andersen WD hitch. It's the hitch I have now and I have had others. This hitch is clean, quick to connect, easy to use and makes no noise. You never get your hands dirty and it doesn't have to be disconnected for tight turns or backing. No sway, no problems.

Since it's relatively new to the market the dealer I bought my trailer from did not sell them. I ordered it on line and their service department installed it for me. The service man that brought my truck and trailer to the front of the dealership told me he had never towed anything so quiet (no snapping and popping while turning).
