When we bought the trailer, the dealer sold us a complete hitch kit for it, set it up wrong
. Had to pay a hitch place to do it right and made the dealer re-imburse me for the setup fee. But that's another story!
It is a Reese Pro Series. The round bars have a sticker on them as follows
"1,000 lb weight distribution, 10,000 lb GTW, 1,000 lb hitch weight - 2 bars"
These bars obviously won't work with dual cam because there is no detent on the ends. Just flat with holes for the chain u-bolts.
I'm wondering now if the hitch is almost too light for the trailer anyways! I haven't gotten a chance to get the actual tongue weight yet, but the trailer info says 880 lb tongue weight.
Will new Reese bars with the detent (likely in the 12,000 GTW range) fit in the hitch head? Can't seem to find any info on the size of the ends.
I'm hoping to not have to buy the whole thing, but just go with new bars and the cam assemblies.
This learning curve for hauling TTs is getting expensive! And I have zero confidence in any advice from the dealer!
Too bad the dealer isn't worth anything more than taking people's money!
Thanks for any advice.
