Recommended Weight Distribution Hitch For 2020 Winnebago Minnie 2201MB W/ 800-850lb Tongue Weight


When weighing my travel trailer at the CAT scale, my axle 26.9 ft Winnebago Minnie 2201 MB weighed 4780 lbs axle weight. I used a tongue weight scale purchased through etrailer and I know my tongue weight was between 800-850. Do I add both the weight from the CAT scale and my tongue weight to get my total weight of the trailer? The sticker on the trailer says the trailers GVWR is 7000 lbs and the dry weight is 4900 lbs

Yes, you will need to add the tongue weight of your 2020 Winnebago Minnie 2201MB to the axle weight of 4780lb to get the total weight unless you unhooked the trailer and put it on its jack on the scale.

Since your tongue weight is between 800-850lbs a perfect weight distribution hitch is the Fastway e2 Weight Distribution w/ 2-Point Sway Control - Trunnion - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW # FA92-00-1000 which works with tongue weights between 600-1000lbs, and it has built in 2-point sway control to keep your trailer going straight down the highway.

This hitch does not include a hitch ball so you will need either 2" hitch ball # A-90 or 2-5/16" hitch ball # 19286 to match the coupler on your trailer.

I included a video of the # FA92-00-1000 for you to take a look at.
