Question 250# tongue wt allegro strenghen 4 scooter

I just bought an Allegro 2007 34 TGA. The book says the tongue weight is only 250# which seems awfully low. If it is 250, any suggestions to beef it up or secure it better to the frame so I can mount a rack and a Honda elite sccoter.

is it 250 because of the hitch or because of the rear suspension most 5000 lb hitches have a 500 lb tounge rating if they are saying 250 I would assume it is the rear suspension reducing the tounge rate

it sounds very low on my artic cat silver fox 30 ft tonge weight is 1200 lbs
as a general rule of thumb you want 10-12 percent of weight on the tounge on my frame (front) near jack there is a tag showing total weight and tongue weight

be careful about the tag That is what the hitch is rated for does not mean the coach can handle that

Low weight probably does have to do with the Motorhome suspension. If you are not too heavily loaded you might be ok. I would never overload on purpose, but you may be very close. The new 110 Elite weighs about 250 lbs with fluids. The rack should weigh 50 lbs or so, so not a big overload. I'd call Tiffin or check with one of the guys ar www.tiffinrvnetwork.com. Safe travels
