I have not checked yet, but my understanding is that 1200lb is the max for my truck with weight distribution. I did switch to LT tires which made a big difference in handling, but I have been assuming my tongue weight is about 1000lb since my WD hitch levels the trailer (1000lb bars).
I was planning on getting it weighed while hitched to my truck, but I cannot seem to find private scales in my area (Waterloo, Ontario). From what you say, I will do this ASAP, and post what I find.
EDIT: I just noticed from your previous post that your tongue weight was with fresh water tanks full; since you have the Elite package (jealous
) you have 80gal capacity versus 40gal in the standard model (mine), so add about 700lb of water slightly in front of the axles. This could easily add 100-200lb of tongue weight, but I am still going to weight my configuration to verify I am within capacity. On another note, I suggest you look under your trailer to see how secure your fresh water tanks are, my single tank does move from side to side quite a bit when I tow with ~10gal in the tank (toilet breaks while on the road!).
