I have a 2020 max tow with a payload of 1865 and have a Grand Design 2400bh on order. Hitch weight is 505, dry weight is 5700 and it's 29 feet long. What hitches do you guys run?
Dry weight means nothing. 7500 GVWR. Hitch weight will be close to 1000 pounds. Make sure the hitch gets set up properly AFTER you get the camper.I have a 2020 max tow and have a Grand Design 2400bh on order. Hitch weight is 505, dry weight is 5700 and it's 29 feet long.

What spring bar rating do you run? Fully loaded I am close to 8k, and use an Equalizer 10k bar. I have air bags to help stiffen the rear.I tow a 7000lb Lance with an F-150. I have the Equal-i-zer WDH and it does two things: It moves about 300 of the 1000 lbs tongue weight to the front axle, and it inhibits sway. Coupled with sway control in the truck and 14% of the trailer weight on the ball, I don't have any sway problems at all.
It's easy to hook up, and I've tweaked the settings a bit to optimize a) truck level, b) trailer level, c) bars level, d) 30% of tongue weight is transferred to the front, e) truck doesn't squat, and f) don't have to jack to the moon to install the bars. I also added helper springs to the back to a) reduce squat and b) improve ride quality when towing.
Make certain you have at least 10% of the trailer weight on the ball, 12% is my minimum. This is a significant factor to control sway.
I can't see dropping a grand or more for a fancy hitch, but that's me. I'd have to try both and see/feel the difference to warrant the expense.
