To drive 30 miles is not a prob w/ur setup,even without,the fancy hitch,drive slow and ur trk would be just fine......SLOW is the operative word...this is assuming u r an experienced tow-er,and u will have the trailer brakes connected...

Absolutely, the electric brakes would be hooked-up and used. My biggest fear (and I haven't hook the camper to the truck as of yet) is how low the back-end of the truck will sag. I may need the WDH for that more than anything else. I'm really torn on what to do with this one. I don't want to spend the money for something I many only use once, but at the same time I don't want to throw all safety out the door either.

Thought your TT would have been towed to your permanent site by someone else by now

Oh, don't use this towing service located somewhere out of Missouri:



Anyway...., with a proper TV a 1,000lb rated WDH would be required at a minimum for the 26BH (ignore the dry/unloaded weights, even for your particular case). To just "get by" with any under rated WDH, even with a proper TV/TT combination, is asking for trouble.

No, not yet. If I did have to pull it, it wouldn't be until mid-November.

Is there a reason your worried about using a 600/6000 vs 1000/100000 they are pretty much the same price, or ought to be.

This is where I got mine from them. There really is not a price jump until you get up to the 1400/14000 model Equalizer.
