If its tongue weight is within the rating of the hitch without WD, I wouldn’t even bother with WD. Our travel trailers are delivered new all over the country by one ton pickups using a simple ball mount. Just my humble non professional non advisory opinion.

I agree.

For gods sake you have a F-350. You could move a house.

If you can't handle a few miles, on a wind free day, to the place to get it fixed then you should not be on the road at all.

I don't see why you would need one at all. But, I am an old farm hand that moved many, many, livestock around all day long without a WDH. I didn't even know there was such a thing until I joined this site.
