Just a heads up on the 27DSRL, you may want to consider at least a 1,000lb rated spring bar based on some JOF members posted comments on their loaded 27DSRL tongue weights.

The 2015 27DSRL has a published UVW of 5,435lbs, for actual shipped UVW add another 400lbs, plus cargo of 600lbs (conservative estimate, no fluids) = 6,435lbs

Note: The yellow sticker on the side of the TT will have the actual shipped UVW.

The 27DSRL is a 31ft long TT, so a 13% to 15% (of gross) loaded tongue weight range would be recommended. Based on the loaded TT weight of 6,435lbs = 836lbs to 965lbs (13% to 15%) would be the recommended loaded tongue weight range.

Just food for thought.

I have the BXW4007 which have a tongue weight rating of 750 lbs - 1,000. The #750 is the minimum if exceed TW of 1000 then I need to move to a #1000 spring bar. I am not sure of what effects an under rated bar has. It seems to do the job of leveling the TV. The spring bars have 2~3" of deflection which is not excessive. I was questioning the under slung hitch head, who here may be using that
