Weight Distribution for a 2015 Ford F-250 and Trailer with 1,600 Pounds Tongue Weight


I have a 2015 Ford F250 Super duty, Lariat, Crew Cab, 4X4, 6.7L diesel, regular bed, FX4. I tow a 35 foot rear to coupler measurement trailer, 10160 lb. GVWR, Dry Tongue weight 1225 lbs., plus two 6V batteries 120 lbs., two 30 gal propane tanks fuel weight 60 lbs. Front storage hold 200 lbs. and hitch weight on the tongue? 1225+120+60+200+hitch weight= 1605 lbs. plus hitch weight. Could please recommend the correct Reese hitch and other components. The hitch is a 2 1/2inch with a 2inch drop.


Expert Reply:

Based on the amount of tongue weight your trailer has (1600+) the Reese Strait-Line weight distribution system, # RP66075, is one option. It is rated for 1,000 to 1,700 pounds tongue weight so as long as you stay within that range this system will work.

To get to that maximum capacity you will need a 2-1/2 inch shank with the system, # RP54977. And for a ball you can use # 63840.

Another option is the Blue Ox SwayPro system # BXW2000 which is rated for 1,500 to 2,000 pounds tongue weight. This system includes a shank so you will just need the ball # 63840. I have linked a video review of this system for you. I have also included some links on weight distribution and determining tongue weight for you.
