Need some help here folks… new TT 2014 Surveyor Cadet, dry weight is 3789 lbs. I’m estimating 4500 Lbs total with propane, batteries, spare tire, awning and full water tank. So roughly 5000 Lbs/ 500 TW on average loaded with our normal traveling equipment.
My TV is a 2009 Ford F150 SCREW 5.4L 4x4 with factory tow package and Hopkins “Agility” brake controller. The profile as is sits pretty level to the eye. However, I know I’m running max on the weight carrying capacity of the hitch of 5000/500. I've been reading a lot on the Reese WDH’s and thinking I'll be going to go that route based on reviews and price. The problem is I'm racking my brains on how high of a rating I should go to.
Any insight on how I should evaluate my particular needs? What would you experienced guys recommend? 6000/600 or higher? How high is too high? What Reese set-up with sway control would you recommend? Should I even bother getting one yet? Run it as is and see how it goes?
Thanks for the help.
