Can Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount Be Used With Weight Distribution System  


Hi, Is it possible to use the WS6-2 with a weight distribution hitch? I have a 2008 Toyota 4Runner V8 Limited 4WD Auto Trans with OEM Air Suspension. I tow a trailer weighing 1,700 lbs with a Jeep on the trailer weighing 4,220 lbs. for a total weight of 5,920 lbs. I sometimes haul other vehicles and the built in scale would be handy, but I need a weight distribution hitch. Could you recommend a weight distribution hitch with or without the WS6-2? Thanks,


Expert Reply:

There are no weight distribution systems designed to be able to use the Weigh Safe 2-Ball Mount, part # WS6-2. All weight distribution system require a shank and do not attach directly to a ball mount like the # WS6-2.

Based on the numbers you mentioned I recommend a weight distribution system like part # C17322. This system has a maximum tongue weight capacity of 1,000 lbs and a maximum towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. The system includes sway control that helps when facing high winds and large passing traffic. The system also includes the shank that has a maximum rise of 2-1/2 inches and maximum drop of 1/2 inch.

If you need a tongue weight scale I recommend the Sherline Trailer Tongue Weight Scale, part # 5780.
