Iím sure this has been answered but I could not find a definitive answer? Is it not a good idea to have a wdh that is rated over my toy hauler weight? Iím picking up a Evo 178 rt. Itís a small toy hauler. Sticker says tongue weight of around 500#s and dry weight of around 3500#s. I have found a used Equalizer wdh that has a tongue weight rating 1400#s. Obviously overkill but it seems like a good deal. Again my question is... is this too much hitch for my setup? And why?
Hard to say since you didn't provide any information on what you are towing with, neither in your post nor in your profile.
If you've got a 1 ton, then you may not need a WDH. Your vehicle's owners manual should tell you when you need a WDH.
I would say that a 1400lb WDH is overkill for that trailer. A 1000lb WDH would be more appropriate.
