I'm looking to tow it with a diesel Jeep Grand Cherokee with a 720 lbs tongue weight (would like to stay under 620 for the dog and weight distributing hitch which will lower the 720), and a max tow capacity of 7,200 lbs which most definitely won't be the limiting factor.
Any real world numbers out there for the 2016 model (which had a significant jump in tongue weight spec)? Also, with the wheels as far back on the trailer as they are would 10% tongue weight target be too little to prevent sway? In my head it would seem the further back the axles are on the trailer the better from a sway perspective....
Thanks in advance, looking to snag one sometime in the next month while they're still left.
Hey to you and welcome to the forum.
"In my head it would seem the further back the axles are on the trailer the better from a sway perspective...." while true, the tongue weight would increase significantly.
