Tips for Towing a 2006 Dutchmen Kodiak Travel Trailer with a Husky Center Line Weight Distribution


I’m looking to install this on a 2004 Silverado 2500 HD pulling a 2006 28 1/2’ Dutchmen Kodiak. Any application issues or suggestions?Thanks

The Husky Center Line # HT32218 is a great product that I believe you'll be happy with, but there are some things to note prior to purchasing a weight distribution (WD) system.

When shopping a WD system you want to find one with a Tongue Weight (TW) range that the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your towing setup falls in the middle of. To find the TTW of your towing setup you will need to add the TW of your fully loaded and ready-to-go trailer, which you can use part # 5780 for, along with the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your tow vehicle. Keep in mind that a properly loaded trailer will have a TW that is 10-15% of the loaded weight of your trailer.

You'll likely be close to the 800 lbs - 1,200 lbs TW for the Center Line # HT32218, but if you find that you don't hit that range once you're fully loaded then you can use the smaller Center Line # HT32217 which has a TW range of 600 lbs - 800 lbs.

I have attached links to some of our helpful articles on travel trailer towing that you can check out as well.
