Best Weight Distribution Hitch for x19h?

Hi all,

We are hoping to pick up our brand new x19h in about two weeks from Richardson's RV in SoCal.

Almost everything I know has been gained from participating in this forum, so I am hoping that someone will share some ideas on the best WDH for this towing configuration.

Thanks!

Cheapest you can find on ebay. Craig's list for good used one as well.
With you're weight I only use a regular hitch with a 1/2 or 3/4 ton truck. You can add a sway control as well.

With a SUV I would go with an Equalizer brand hitch they are not overly expensive and provide sway control as well it should serve your setup well. If you choose this route make sure you ask specifically for that brand, almost every dealer and person will confuse an Equalizer with a weight distribution hitch. Equaulizer is like Kleenex is to tissue.

I like the Equal-i-Zer too. I like my hitch, Husky Centerline, it works great but is very heavy. If have been considering trading to an Equal-i-Zer myself.

Even under "maximum" loaded trailer and tongue weight (@ 15%) conditions a 800lb rated WDH would be more then enough.

That's maximum weight, anything under that is ok.
