We have calculations for tongue weight and pin weight, anyone from the weight police have a reverse fiver towing calculator?

The original post from another forum mentioned something about Bakken so probably Montana, North Dakota or Canada.

I could actually use something like that. I wonder how much it costs.

I have a 5th wheel and a suburban. Itís currently parked permanent but I might need to move it if the river floods (which has happened in the past). I would just be moving it across the campground though.

The campground doesnít have any way to move it either.

Yea, I actually found a thread about it in the product review forum on this site. I bit pricey for the number of times I might actually need it.

I’d be better off just finding a friend with a 5th wheel hook-up on their truck.

Makes sense. The review threads are always interesting- something always smells fishy about the person doing the reviews. They're overly enthusiastic about the product and always seem to have some kind of tie back to the company/owner even if they're "just a friend". And then there is the flipside- everyone else views this as a solution in search of a problem. I can imagine so few scenarios where this might make some sense that it's hard to see both sides of the coin.

They need a reverse WDH, something to add weight to the back of the Suburban.

Side note, I bet that Suburban can do one heck of a burnout with the trailer hooked up.
