Weight Distribution Hitch w/ 6 Inch Drop For 12,000 lb Trailer


Torsion bar hitch. Do you offer a hitch that will drop 6” from a 2020 GMC 2500 Denali Dura Max. Requires 2 5/16” Ball and with torsion bars?? 12,000 loaded weight including trailer.


Helpful Expert Reply:

By torsion hitch and torsion bars, I believe you are referring to a weight distribution hitch, and there is an option for one that will allow a 6 inch drop. So long as your 12,000 lb trailer's total tongue weight - the tongue weight of your fully loaded trailer plus the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of your truck - is no more than 1,500 lbs, you can use one of the following weight distribution hitches, depending on if you want sway control or not:

- Reese Weight Distribution Without Shank # RP66131

- Strait-Line Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control - No Shank # RP66130

- Curt Welded Weight Distribution Shank # C17123

- 2-5/16" Hitch Ball # C40030

Both weight distribution hitches are for total tongue weights between 800 lbs and 1,500 lbs, and the shank will give you a maximum 8-1/4" drop.
