Will a Hitch Extender with Weight Distribution Cause Trailer to Sway


I have a 36foot long travel trailer and plan to use the # TLE1521 Tork Lift Super hitch 21inch to tow it behind my 2007 Ram 2500 truck. I wanted to put the tailgate down so I could put my motorcycle in the bed of the truck. I use the Reese cam Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 15,000 lbs GTW, 1,500 lbs TW and currently have very little to no sway when pulling with my regular hitch. My question is, will my trailers tendency to sway increase with the use of the 21inch extension?


Expert Reply:

Adding length to your trailer setup shouldn't increase the tendency of the trailer to sway as long as everything was done properly. If anything now the truck has more leverage over the trailer due to the increased tongue length. Usually it's shorter trailers that aren't sitting level or have improper tongue weight that are going to sway.
