Do I still need to use the two support bars which transfer part of the trailer weight to the frame, or can i just use the heavy duty tow bar and the anti sway attachment?
Trailer weight is max 5500 lbs for this trip
Thanks in advance
Whether a weight distributing hitch is needed is a function of tongue weight and max trailer weight ratings on the hitch and receiver. There should be two (one with WD and one without).
I am SURE the 12K rating is with WD. Whether you need one at 5500 depends on the "not with WD" rating. I believe my 2500 GMC's rating is 5000 pounds without WD hitch.
