The camper is a 2016 Wildwood 26tbss with a hitch weight of 815 if I recall..
Any input appreciated and thank you and sorry if this has been asked before!
How far you pulling it tomorrow? Empty and dry or wet and loaded? Ours runs about 5500lb dry and enpty. We brought it home 30 miles wo WD hitch. Our truck is beefy and handled it but thevset up, with 1000 WD hitch is IMO essential when we hit the road loaded.
If the pickup is a short trip, use the hitch you have if you are running empty and see how it feels
