Might want to post type of TV. So those familiar with the WDHs can address the question better.


My 228 has a tongue weight of 515-530 lbs, and installed rear suspension air bags to keep the truck level. Is that an option for you?

I believe you can install air bags and not void out a lease. Ones like Firestone do not require any drilling, just remove the aux spring (aka bump stop), and place the bag in its place. When turning it in, remove them, or maybe the lease company will appreciate the install for resale.

I am not familiar with the fastaway brand.

I like my equalizer. I use a 1,000#/10,000 model with my pop up.
