I use a Reese equalizing hitch with 1000 lb bars.
On another forum, I saw a post that stated a 1/2 ton truck should never tow a trailer of this size. That is why I posted the question.
I can't imagine not being able to handle that tongue weight unless you have things loaded to the gills.
There are plenty of folks that think a 1/2 ton can't tow a scooter...
