SuiteSuccess Posted March 10, 2016 Report Share Posted March 10, 2016 Several years ago we bought a Jayco Eagle 27BHS for our kids and grandkids to use. Have been pulling with my F450 with no issue. SIL and daughter bought a Ford Expedition EL 4x4 with heavy duty tow package which they want to use for the trailer. Specs of their Ford show towing capacity of 9200lbs. Hitch is Class IV but tag on hitch limits tongue weight to 920 lbs. Jayco empty weight is 6200 lbs and cargo at most is 300-400 lbs if that. Jayco literature and everything I could find on the internet says minimum tongue weight on a trailer should be 10% (~650lbs) while most recommend 15% (~975lbs) which exceeds hitch recommendations for tongue weight. Their suspension is rated for the weight and they have a 3.73 differential. Are they probably OK with weight distributing hitch? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
