Weight distribution hitch

My pup is a hw276 at 4k full. Question is can I get a wdh for a 10k full load? I'm planning on getting a TT in a yr or 2 and would like not to have to get a new wdh

I have an E2 10K on my Vibe about 3600 lbs loaded. The only issue you may run into is the the bars are so stiff with only 500 lbs (guess) that the rear of the TV will feel very stiff over bumps, this depend on what you TV is. with my minivan it really mad the back end stiff but with the RAM 1500 I don't notice it. You need to make sure also that you avoid going through large dips as this may stress the popup frame.

Ty happy vibe. I'm trading my current tv (explorer) next yr and getting a ram 1500 or f150. So that's something for me to consider too. Never thought about a dip stressing the frame.

Heya Kinma. Say it is not so that your thinking of selling the popup. That is a great unit you have.

I fun the equalizer 1K/10K bars with my my current pop up and it is fine. As mentioned deep dips put lots of stress on the metal. But this cannot be avoided.

You can dial down the amount of stress on them by adjusting the settings. You can always do that.

Vin.

Hey vin. Yeah we ll be keeping the pup for another yr or so but we don't like having to open just to load the fridge and let's not even start talking about the awning. But we are liking the FR Roo 233s (hybrid)

If you are planning to use one on a pup, than transfer it to a TT, I believe you would change out the bars, starting with a lighter set for the PUP and then a heavier set for the TT.
