24' dutchmen kodiak looking forward to getting back out there this season.
WDH, 3.73 and Ford Brake controller. Now looking at stiffing up the rear a little, maybe Airbags or RAS, just starting to look
Have you done tires yet? Makes a world of difference moving to an LT tire with stronger sidewall and twice as much air in it.
Your trailer likely has low enough tongue weight that you really only need the sway control on your hitch. Assuming it came with a friction slider bar that is.
Yes, for starters, you'll be adjusting the height on your hitch.
Thanks for the info. If I could get away without using the leveling/weight distribution bars, that would be great. Just one less step. I actually never used the sway bar previously. I have not taken the trailer out on a true freeway as of yet, though. Mostly back road highways.
What other factors may I have to consider, now that I'm using my truck?

Yeah, wear out the factory tires then get LT's, that's my plan.
People may think they don't need a weight distributing hitch, but the difference in the quality of the ride makes it a necessity for me. I can't stand towing without one, regardless of the tow vehicle. It will calm down any "porpoising", and tie things together, giving your "rig" an integrated "one-ness" feel. Try towing with and without one, and you should notice the great improvement a WDH gives you.
( It amazes me that people aren't willing to spend an extra $300 on "insurance" for a WDH on a rig easily worth upwards of $40K, $50k, ...)
