Could you reverse your stinger mounting as shown below and adjust?

Fonzie,
Reversing the stinger won't do it because the trailer sits 3 inches higher. I would lose strength in the attachment as the bottom part would be empty.

I went ahead and cut off the extra 2" from the bar. That should get me over those higher speed bumps they sometimes use in the campgrounds.


I also have confirmation from Sean that he has finally shipped out 3/8" shim plates for my trailer. That should fix the WD issue and prevent them from bending outwards again. I will post an update once received and installed.

Uhduh,
You are right, the Hensley hitch bar will not fit (confirmed by Hensley).

And yes, the breakaway cable is attached directy to frame, not to the receiver or related parts. That one was obvious!

And finally, the 700lbs on the tongue is within my payload as all cargo travels in the trailer. Only have wife and kids in the car (total of 550lbs including myself). The ride comfort has not been an issue this far. No excess bounce and never bottomed out.

I believe Sean's email program blocks some Canadian email addresses. Had same issue. A phone call took care of it.
