Make sure a WDH can be used with your travel trailer frame. Your frame may be too light in construction.

I have the identical TT and tow it with a '13 Toyota Sienna 6 cyl with factory towing package. The RV dealer (best one in Cincinnati area) recommended and installed an e2 trunnion style hitch head with spring arm bars and a Primus IQ brake controller. After many years of towing two Jayco pop-ups I was very apprehensive about trailer towing and stopping. I can assure you that what they installed was just the ticket - no sway or wobble, easy effortless braking and, so far, no worries. Be sure to take the time to get the right setup for your TV. Good luck!

Hi Pawntan,
I have a 2015 27DSRL pulled by a 2014 Toyota Tundra Double Cab. I did a lot of research on WDH and came to getting an Equalizer 10K hitch. I'm glad I did because once the trailer and vehicle were fully loaded it was or shall I say close to max weight. I'm about 1k from max out but I have everything needed for long trips packed and distributed equally through the unit. When we're on the road there isn't any swaying or bouncing even when passed by a big rig. Try [url]www.equalizer.com then do some extended homework. I personally would rather have more than less for safety reasons when towing.

We use the Andersen hitch. No bars and yes you can back up with it.
