    Default Which hitch?

    It looks like this trailer had a weight distribution hitch. Here is the part that is on the trailer. Any idea what make/model I need for the truck half?

    Go see Six Roblees or Trailer Craft.

    Or take your pick......need to figure up trailer weight tongue weight and then we can get to work.

    I will have to do some more checking but here are the specs for the current version of my trailer (24' model) but mine is a 2004.

    I have a 2009 F250 CC/LB Diesel with factory tow package to include trailer brake controller. The picture is the existing welded brackets on the trailer. I am hoping to ID what brackets they are so I can by the truck side 1/2 of the hitch.

    Those brackets are generic, they will work with any weight distribution hitch that uses a chain from the bars to the trailer.

    Eazlift Prostar looks to be the most economical hitch but they are only rated to 10,000 lbs and my trailer grosses at 10,500 from what I have found online. I imaging a few passes over the scales could sort out my trailer and tongue weight.

    When I bought the weight distribution hitch for my boat trailer I went up one size from what I needed, I got a 15K pound rated hitch to tow 12K boat and trailer. If there was ever a place to spend a bit of extra money it would be in a trailer hitch.
