Tom, there are a few threads in this forum regarding hitches with many different views; also type in your trailer type and see what pops up while you are waiting for a specific replay to your question. Type in the search section and see what you get.

Welcome to JOF

Based on the potential "loaded" weights of the 23B, IMO most will fine a WDH would be required. Here is a recent JOF thread on the very same 23B subject:

If you have any further specific questions on weights or WDH's, you may find starting a new thread in the "Towing and Tow Vehicles" sub-forum will produce additional replies.
