I recently upgraded from a 1500 to a 2500 truck to tow my Roo 21SS. I had to get a new shank to drop my ball down about 4 inches. Today I went to the Cat scale and had everything weighed and would like to get feedback on how it looks and if I need to make any adjustments. I believe the height is pretty good as the camper is pretty close to level. Maybe the front is 1/2 inch higher but it depends on where it is sitting. Here are my weights.
With camper hitched with w/d bars in place:
Front axle - 3860 lbs
Rear axle - 3940 lbs
Camper axles - 4440 lbs
Truck without camper:
Front axle - 4160 lbs
Rear axle - 3060 lbs
When hitched and the bars attached the truck rear drops about 1 inch at the wheel wells. The front rises about 1/2 inch at the wheel wells. From my calculations the tongue weight is 740 lbs and the weight of the camper is 5140. Tongue weight is a little under 15% of trailer weight.
Do I need to tweak anything? Maybe shift a little more weight to the front axle? Everything seemed to handle great but this is the first time I have set up one of these hitches. The dealer did it the first time. Here are some pictures of my setup.
