Yes it is correct. I do have the max tow with the 6.5 bed. I know I'm close to max limit with this trailer as I was with previous TT and my Suburban at the time. May have to keep it close to home for awhile until DW can be convinced we need to upgrade truck which I was thinking about most of the trip.

FWIW, I towed my 35ft TT with my Excursion using a Reese Dual Cam hitch. Never any issues, and I do 4000 miles in 2-3 weeks, so lots of driving. Properly setup any hitch will provide a safe towing experience.

We are now into a motorhome, but we did own a travel trailer that swayed all over the road with the large SUV I had as atow vehicle. It was our decision to try the Hensley hitch and that made all the difference to allow us to continue a sway free drive. I do know if I was ever to go back to a travel trailer it would have either a pro pride or a Hensley hitch hooked to it. They used to have a money back warranty if you didn't like how it performed. What have you got to loose? It will make your towing experiance comfortable.

The success of hitching up “first time” decreases in proportion to the size of the peanut gallery.

One time camped waaaay out north of the Middle of Noplace I backs in going to stop and get out and look and gentle “thump”. Chit! I’ve hit the hitch and knocked it sideways! Noooo!

I jumps out and look. I had hit it so perfect I closed the latches by hand.
