Hitch size

Bought a E-Pro19FD, 390 lb TW, 2800 dry, 3890 GVWR. Buying a Husky Centerline TS . The come in 400-600 or 600 - 800 TW. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with these, and which would perform better. I understand that weight on my truck, on or behind the rear axle will add to the TW. ?

If you assume up to 15% of GVWR on the tongue that puts you just under 600LB, if it were me then I would go with the 600-800 bars to ensure sufficient WDH capability instead of not enough.

For some of the Husky hitches you need to have a minimum trailer weight of 4000# for the hitch to work correctly. I think itís the one with the hydraulic pistons with it. I canít get the manual to download right now but I would double check that before you buy just in case.

The hitch that Mopwr4me references is the Husky Centerline HD system which utilizes compression cylinders. OP is purchasing the Husky Centerline TS, a four-point anti-sway hitch design. This is the hitch that I use.

I went with the 600-800 lb bars for my trailer which is 5,200 lbs on the road with a tongue weight of 780 lbs (measured with a hitch scale).

For my trailer’s hitch weight, the 600-800 lb bars provide very effective weight distribution to my tow vehicle's front axle. Using the 600-800 lbs bars (for my trailer's weight) produces a relaxed towing experience, even at the top range of the hitch's rating. Using heavier bars than needed may produce a stiffer ride for the truck-trailer combination.

My advice to OP: for your E-Pro 19FD, go with the model rated for 400-600 lbs hitch weight.
