1,200 bars will be WAY too stiff for a 21SS. Get bars that are more closely aligned with your tongue weight. Trust me, I've been there. Made that mistake.

thats plenty of vehicle to tow the Roo - May want to verify you Hitch reciever is ok to tow the Roo - if not look on JC Whitney - I put a 15,000lb reciever on my dodge for like $225 shipped to my door because my stock hitch would flex when ever I loaded the bars to distribute the weight.

The Roo 21ss Dry Hitch Weight is 570lbs.
GVWR - 5,743lbs.

My 2306 Dry Hitch weight is 318lbsDry Hitch Weight318 lb. (144 kg )Dry Ship Weight3,646 lb. (1,654 kg )GVWR4,718 lb. (2,140 kg )Cargo Carrying Capacity1,233 lb. (559 kg )
GVWR - 4,718lbs.


After comparing the two weights - your Roo 21SS to my 2306 - I wouldnt go less then the 1,000 / 10,000 in a Equalizer - I cannot say for Reese cause have never used their WDH.

Once you start adding fresh water to the tank (If the tank is placed forward of the axles like mine is) you will get more tongue weight on top of the Batteries and Propane Tanks.
