Recommended Weight Distribution System For Grand Design Imagine 2950RL Trailer


Our tow vehicle is a 2016, Ford F-150, 3.5, V6, EcoBoost...our travel trailer is the Grand Design, Imagine, 2950RL model. The Grand Design spec says the GVWR is 8995 lbs. with a tongue weight of 795. What weight distribution and sway control would you recommend? Thank you,


Expert Reply:

For your 2016 Ford F-150, I recommend the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW # RP66074. This system has a total tongue weight range of 600-1200 lbs. The total tongue weight is the loaded tongue weight of your trailer along with any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck.

The Reese Straight-Line uses hot rolled spring trunnion bars along with cams to keep your trailer straight. This is the only system that actually actively prevents trailer sway. The chains allow you to micro adjust the system for your driving preferences while still keeping the sway control active. On turns, the cams are overcome by the bars and slide freely and then automatically realign for straight driving. This system also allows you to back up without disconnecting the system.

For this system you will need a hitch ball like # 19286 and I recommend a locking hitch and coupler set like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver & Coupler Lockset - 2" Trailer Hitch Receiver # e99039.
