1,000# TW Weight Distribution Hitch on a Roo

Has anyone been able to use a 1000/10000 WDH on a Roo 23ikss

I have a Camco 1,000/10,000 EZ-Lift Bar setup I am giving to a friend, he was going to use it in his used 23ikss, my question is has anyone used one on a Roo with a 600# TW?

I told him to get an Anderson like mine but he can't spend anymore $ so I am giving him my Camco? Just wondering if it is too much for a small trailer. I had it on my Shasta 33 which was 900# TW and 7,000# trailer weight.

I am using a 10000/1000 lbs e2 hitch on my vibe 6501. Only 3300lbs and 400 tongue weight. Used it with a minivan and now a RAM 1500 with no issues.

I use an equilizer 4pt 10k wdh. Guessing on tounge loaded closer to 700 or so, works fine. Works better stiff with the softer f150 rear suspension.

I've been using an Equal-i-zer 4pt WDH 1000/10000lbs, on my 23SS, for nearly 10 years now.
The 23SS's weights are close to the 23IKSS,

I am using the same Camco 1,000/10,000 EZ-Lift Bar setup for my Roo 19. The dealer set me up with the hitch so my Explorer could pull the Roo which had no problems towing. It was a great setup at the time.

I am using a 1000# Trekker on my 23IKSS and an F150 and I love it. Tows like a dream, no sway at any speed or road conditions, nice and level, fully adjustable for changing tongue weight and truck load and since it has solid bars instead of chains I am more stealth than many in the CG.

I went with E2 1,000/10,000 for my shamrock m18 planned on using as we grow into a bigger camper down the road price was the same as lower weight system, no disadvantage going up.
