Weight Distribution System Recommendatio for 2016 Forest River Stealth


What sway bar hitch do you recommend for this? I have a one ton Dodge mag cab pulling a 2016 forest River Stealth 19 9999gvrw fully loaded .

The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use.

If your trailer when fully loaded is 9,999 lbs that would mean the tongue weight is going to be between 1,000 and 1,500 lbs.

The best solution would then be the part # RP66075 which has a tongue weight range of 1,000 to 1,700 lbs and features only sway control to fight to prevent sway before it starts. For a shank you'd then want the part # RP54977 as you most likely have a 2-1/2 inch hitch installed on your truck.

For a hitch ball you then would want the part # C40085 which has a 30k capacity.
