My question is with a dry tongue weight of 750 and a potential loaded tongue weight over 1000# do I need a 1200# hitch or is that overkill?
Thanks for the help
IMO, Go heavy (up to the hitch limit for your truck's receiver).
One day you might want to upgrade to a heavier camper/tow vehicle.
WD hitch's don't go bad... Mine is still in the shed (have a 5th wheel now) and use it occasionally. Never know when you might need to tow your brother's Backhoe to his farm.
