TV hitch weight rating vs TT tongue weight
I have a 2004 Lincoln Navigator with the tow package and self leveling air bag suspension. Ratings on truck are 8850lbs MGTW and 885lbs max tongue weight.
The trailer we want is rated at 7910lbs GVWR, 6090 unloaded vehicle weight, and 910lbs dry hitch weight.
All the numbers seem okay but I'm concerned about the hitch weight. Should I be concerned, am I correct in assuming I can lighten the hitch load by load placement in the trailer? It's so close but that little bit has me worried.
And I do plan on using a weight distributing hitch.
