My setup yielded a TW of about 200 pounds.Trying to figure out how to reduce the tongue weight. Already moved the spare to the rear on a bumper with swing arm, moved e front box back against the trailer box, mounted the propain bottle on the rear quarter panel and have the rear stabilizer jacks mount the both rear quarter panels. The RTT is slightly aft of center but the batwing sticks out more forward than to the rear. Have a lithium ion battery in the tongue box along with an ac and a solar charger. Also have some empty water tanks under the front of the trailer box. Will try moving the RTT back a bit but can't go too far. Any ideas?
I want to spread the load a bit, rather than 4 contact points.Simple . U bolts around the frame of the rack through the top of the trailer deck.
Ouch... 22-25% TW is quite a lot. In reality, only thing that you can do is somehow hang fore stuff aft of the point where the axles bolt on to the body.My scale stops at 325 so I don't know how heavy it is with water in the tanks. And yes, there are 2 20 gal tanks under the front of the main box and a 9 gal between the axles. No place to mount them at the rear of the trailer and when we travel, have the main box full of stuff.
I am not sure what ones there are using. But if you dig back to older posts there where a few different versions that others did. I know one of them shared all the info for where to get his.Does anyone have some lengths of the gas struts used in the Habitat kit? What about the weight rating for them? I am looking at installing some on the trailer for a large CVT tent up top but not a fan of dropping almost $400 on the kit.
