Would this have been noticed had he had the WD hitch setup properly? or if he was using a HA? while the thing is all setup wrong......properly setup with a good sway control system, he may be OK.

Those Catalina's are heavy heavy heavy. Mine is 26' and I wish I had a 3/4 to pull with or gone with an ultralight of the same floor plan. Empty my trailer is 6450.

Wow that is what mine weighs fully loaded and I have a toy hauler with 106 gallons of fresh water.

Wow, it's a wonder he can turn a corner, can't imagine he has much for a contact patch on the front tires.

Probably has separate brake controls for the rear wheels like on a dragster to keep it straight or turn. LOL. Seriously though that is scary looking. That would be like trying to pull our new Wildwood 29BHBS (about 7600 lbs empty and about 35 feet long) with our 4 cylinder Tacoma. Don't worry, I am not going to try it, we have it on a site until it is time to get a bigger rig for hauling that beast.

Well, my Suburban is more susceptible to sag that a shorter wheelbase Yukon/Tahoe. A while back, I posted about hooking a trailer with 950 lb tongue weight to it without the WD before I put in my timbrens. So bare suspension with that kind of load, I'd get around 3" of sag.

This guy is way more than that. So either he is way over the 1000 lb tongue weight limit ( with WD), some part of the suspension is broken, or their WD setup is actually inducing sag because it's set up wrong.
