[QUOTE=ttavasc;411494]The GVWR on the Baja is 3750 compared to 3500 for the standard model. My yellow sticker shows a weight from the factory with full propane of 3015 leaving 735 for cargo. The Baja has a 30lb propane tank compared to the standard model's 20lb which when full is about 17lbs heavier. I tend to run a little on the heavy side - I've added a second Group 24 battery and I keep at least 5-6 gallons water in the fresh water tank for use when traveling and will increase that some if needed to keep a consistent tongue weight. My most recent CAT scale at the beginning of this season shows a loaded trailer weight of 3685, trailer axle at 3260 and a tongue weight of 425lbs which is just under 12% of loaded trailer weight. On longer trips such as when we head south to Utah and Arizona I like to push the tongue weight up to closer to 450lb.[/QUOTE

I understand thank you for the info, I just couldn't understand how it could be so much heaver

Also have the Husky WDH with Friction Sway Control.

This is about as basic as WDH get, and since the dealer "threw it in" to get me to sign, I'm sure it's the cheapest on the market (but also may be high margin). The biggest plus to the system is that it can be used with successive trailers with only an upgrade to the carrying capacity of the bars. Also the ball height has a pretty broad range of adjustment. Dead simple to operate and use.

The sway control I only use for highway; don't bother for short local trips where I won't be experiencing higher speeds. It IS a pain to always remember to remove it when backing, but not all installations require this, so test when you first get it; have a spotter watch while you jackknife left and right to see if the WDH closes or opens completely. My hitch/tongue geometry is short enough that this does happen.

Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the help; i have decided to spend the extra $ and get the integrated sway control. Probably go with the Husky TS Centerline. Cheapest place online is amazon. anyone know any other good sites; e trailer does not carry the 400 to 600 lb tongue weight model

Thanks Again

can anyone tell me what the frame dimensions are on the 174bh? Husky has a carriage bolt kit available to use when installing hitches to frames less than 2" wide

My 2015 195RB is 2" wide and 4" tall. I would imagine that the 174BH is the same.
