TT is going to be 2017 hummingbird 17rb baja dry weight is Aprox 2800.

Tongue weight for the TT is 315

I've had two Blue Ox WDH setups and have been very happy with them. Not sure if they have a hitch for your setup but I'd check with them if I was you.

Like my Andersen WDH. Need a power tongue jack to make it really simple and easy but love the light weight and lack of bars to lever into place. I pull and 195 with a Grand Cherokee Overland.

I am really liking the Andersen! And the reviews. I need to find best place to order will probably need the 6 or 8" drop with a 2" ball I think. Does the hummingbird use a 2" or 2 5/16" ball?

Blue Ox Sway Pro is the way to go. Easy install, easy hitch-up, quiet and best of all Made in USA.

I have about 2,000 miles on the Draw Tite hitch that was set up for my new Jayco 195 RB. The dealer set up placed the tongue about 2" nose up. I redid the setup so when hooked, the tongue is nose down to about 1" below center. Redoing the setup is a very good learning process and allows setting the hitch to your particular situation. The Draw Tite is rock solid, even in windy conditions and makes driving a pleasure. Good luck..

The Hummingbird is a new TT, so not a lot is known about it. Check what Jayco says about the Hummingbird. It is a vey light trailer the tongue might not be strong enough for a WDH. You might only be able to have a mechanical sway bar.
