Rockwood 2905 SS on order & and a question
We just ordered a '14 Rockwood Ultralite 2905 SS and can't wait. However, I'm a bit perplexed by the stated specs, particularly the hitch weight.
First things first, my tow vehicle is an '08 Land Cruiser. It's rated at 8,200 lbs. max tow and 850 lbs. hitch weight.
The 2905's tongue weight is considerably higher than similar trailers in the same line and of the same size. Here's a breakdown:
2905 - 5267 lbs trailer weight / 754 lbs. tongue weight;
2902 - 5865 / 668
2904 - 6074 / 611
2909 - 5709 / 603
I can't figure out why the 2905 has considerable more tongue weight. Are the stated specs usually correct? The 2905 and the 2909 are almost identical. The only difference is the kitchen is switched to opposite sides. The only thing I can figure is on the 2905, the kitchen looks to be a little more toward the front (perhaps 3-4 feet). Could that be the difference? It's just a bit confusing that the lightest of the 4 has much more tongue weight. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
