I have a 2015 Forest River Rockwood Premier 2516G with dual propane and dual batteries.
I want to get a weight distribution hitch. However, the dual propane tanks sit on a tray that sits on top of the trailer's A-frame at precisely the point where WDH brackets are supposed to mount.
The options, as I see them:
- Use side-mounted brackets.
- Raise the propane tray so it doesn't block standard WDH brackets.
The advantage to #1 is it requires less modification; I don't have to figure out how to move the propane. I just have to drill the frame and mount the side brackets.
The disadvantages to #1 are: I have to drill the frame. Also, side-mount brackets require that I use the trailer's tongue jack to lift both the trailer and the vehicle so that I can attach the chains. That's hard on the jack. And finally, those brackets are always an extra purchase.
I would prefer option #2. I could probably fabricate a riser out of some jerry-rigged wood or metal brackets. But I've seen mentioned in another forum
that there may be a bracket recommended by Forest River.
Has anyone made this modification? And where do I find these brackets?
