WDH Selection/Considerations

I had a previous post regarding pulling a travel trailer with a 2021 Tahoe and I received some great info. I have a follow-up question regarding selecting a WDH. The 2021 Tahoe has a 120.9 wheelbase, 8400 lb. towing capacity, 1834 lb payload, and 5677 lb curb wt.. If I go with the Rockwood Mini Lite 2104S (22'4", 4841 lb dry wt.), should I seriously consider the Hensley/ProPride or would I be fine sticking with something like an Equalizer 4-point/Blue Ox Pro/Andersen? Same question if I go with the larger Rockwood Mini Lite 2507S (25'11”, 5471 lb dry wt.). Thanks.

Never use dry weight, If you can not pull fully loaded GCWR don't buy it. Be Safe, don't risk your life despite 20 odd people say it pulls well.

Looks like that specific trailers GVWR is 6774 lbs from what I can find. You’ll be just fine with 22’ long. I also think you’ll be fine with a equalizer/blue ox/ Anderson.

Assuming proper loading with trailer wt./tongue wt./payload within the tow vehicle and trailer's specifications, would it be fair to say that a Hensley/ProPride is more necessary when a trailer is too long for the tow vehicle's wheelbase or for those who understandably want that extra margin of safety should they get into a dangerous situation?

IMHO, Yes.

All 5 hitches you mentioned would be fine. Get what you are comfortable with. Don't base your decision solely on other peoples opinions.

I have pulled a pop-up camper for many years, but never a travel trailer, so I really don't know what I am going to be comfortable with!
