Xterra towing M-190XR

New this forum, hoping to pick up some tips on my NTU Rockwood M-190XR. I recently purchased a 2009 Rockwood M-190XR and have some questions.

The seller states it needs a 2 5/16 th's ball, in the generic Rockwood owner's manual, it states Freedom series trailers with a 2 5/16 th's require a class IV. Seems like over kill for a 2200 something # dry weight trailer.

I don't currently have a WDH, my Xterra has a 500/5000 # rating. Do you think I will need a WDH?

As soon as you put anything on the deck of that trailer, plus stuff for camping, you will definitely need a WDH in my opinion.

Thanks for the reply. I am driving several hundred miles to pick it up. The seller has pulled with a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited without a WDH. In theory, the Xterra has more capacity. I plan to come home dry, so if the specs are right, I should be fine on tongue weight.

I plan to get a WDH, but do to the double stack frame members, I am hesitant to buy one without seeing the trailer up close. I think the Reese Strait Line WDH should be a good fit, integrated sway control at a 600# max tongue weight. I don't plan on towing with a quad, just bikes, cooler, firewood etc., but assume the trunnion bars can be swapped out for heavier load.

At any rate, I will bring several ball sizes, a sway bar adaptor plate and a friction sway bar. Hopefully no surprises on the way home.
