Good deal, sounds like you are doing it correctly. Shoot them an email or give them a call. They are pretty good at replying (better at phone than email). Tell them of your current situation with the E2, and ask what their solution is. They have high rise shanks for the Equal-i-zer, in addition to their standard shank.

I just reviewed the trailer specs on the 338RETS.
- unloaded tongue weight is 13% of the unloaded TT weight.
- Therefore at max gross trailer weight of 10,950#, your max tongue weight will be 1433#.
- You should be using 1500# WD bars on whatever hitch you decide to use.

Others on this thread are right. With this trailer, your excursion is going to run out payload capacity before it runs out of towing capacity.

good luck and have fun.

I really appreciate everyone's reply. Once I read the 4th post I relized I might be overloading the hitch didn't relize it was by that much. Looks like I need to be putting money away for the hensly or the other one just have to decide which one now. Thanks again for the help

If you can't stomach the $2,500+ for the Hensley/ProPride (which I can't), then the Equal-i-zer goes for $550, and the Blue Ox goes for $600. Both are great solutions.

Or a Reese Straightline with 1500# bars goes for $502 on Amazon.

The existing class 3/4 receiver hitch on your TV is most likely rated @ 1,250# tongue weight, 12,500# tow weight with a WD hitch. If your tongue weight is 1,400# then you also need to replace the existing receiver with a class 5 2.5" receiver.

From what I understand, most of the manufactures shanks bolt spacing is the same for the hitch head, 1-1/4".

The Reese Titan shank is very stout if you end up replacing your receiver with a 2.5" model.
