    I'm gonna pull a rental travel trailer from Vegas to Moab in October. The trailer weight doesn't worry me, it's the tongue weight. I hate having my truck nose high. What kind of tongue weights are you pulling W/ OUT weight distribution? Any pics would be awesome.

    The first thing I;d do is re-distribute the weight in the truck to get the tounge weight down to 300-350 lbs. You generally want the tounge wieght to be apprx. 10% of the trailer weight for good control.

    With the weigh properly distributed you shouldn't need a weight distributing hitch.
