GeoFish,

That is the purpose of the WD feature of a WDH. It takes the weight off the tongue and moves it forward thru leverage to the front of the truck, unloading the tongue weight both forward and aft to the trailer wheels while leaving an appropriate amount on the hitch itself, depending entirely on your adjustments.

You did not give much informaton on your truck. Are you sure that the 11,300lbs is not GCWR Gross Combined Weight Ratio? This would be your truck and trailer total weight?

With your 27ULSBS fully loaded and your truck loaded I would guess your GCWR would be around 15,000 to 17,000lbs?

Does your f150 have a towing pkg ie....Heavy duty cooling, trans cooling, tow shift trans?

The Work and Play 275ULSBS is a nice rig. Your right about the gen and propane tanks adding to the TW significantly. I don't think it's unusual for the manufacturer to assume you going to be hauling 1000lbs or more when using the trailer they are designed that way.

Back to your truck. I would at least upgrade the hitch. The OEM hitch on my Super Duty was just 10,000 I upgraded to 16,000 and it does not cost that much for the extra assurance. I would also ad sway control. I run two friction bars one on each side with WDH. Airbags?

I found the 11,300lb specs you stated you must have a ecoboost? Impressive towing. Do you know what the GXWR is?
