Maybe a dumb question , but how do you weigh the weight behind the TV rear axle? Some trips in the future I maybe adding a 700 pound atv with a row of firewood in front of the atv up against the cab. Would two different weight rated bars be a ideal set up for this depending on whats in the truck bed ?

No. WDH kits have a very wide range in TW and still be effective. I use a 10k Equalizer for about 750 lbs TW, and I hear you can go lower than that.

Size the WDH kit for the maximum condition, then make adjustments if the "effective" TW will be significantly less.

As far as how to weigh the stuff behind the rear axle, we're talking about what cargo you put in the bed, behind the axle. Just estimate it.

Thank you for all the help. I'm going to give them a call tomorrow. Wish the E4 came in 8000.
Has anyone even ordered from www.pplmotorhomes.com before? Their prices are pretty good.

rvwholesalers is very popular for the Equal-I-zer, but I have also heard of people with good experience from pplmotorhomes as well. Check them both.
