I have a Palimono PU Camper and want to pull my Harley in 6X12 enclosed trailer. I will need an 18" Stinger for the Class IV Hitch. If I use a Weight Distributing Hitch wuld this setup be ok?

I did it for ten years with a 6.5x10 trailor and just the 18" extention with out any issues at all. Two bikes and all the gear, ramps etc. GO for it. Scotty. Oh I did however use cables instead of chains 1/2 inch vinel covered coiled. I found the chains were hard to keep from dragging.

I would not hesitate to use the 18-inch stinger by itself.

I have towed many different trailers through the years, and at one time I manufactured them.

I have a 42" extension and tow a 7x14 enclosed V-nose trailer (all aluminum so light curb weight) with bikes. Two HD bikes would weigh a bunch more but I'd still do it. Curb weight of my trailer is 1800 lbs and I've pulled it with 2 550 lb sleds in it. I will not tow my 23' boat with the camper on though, that is 7500 lbs and the tongue would simply be way too heavy.

Towed my 2000 lb boat with Ford factory hitch on my F350 on the end of a 48 inch Torklift super hitch dual tube. I didn't have the Superhitch at the time so only one tube was supporting the boat. The boat only has 130 tounge weight. It didn't tow very well for the short distance I went. I did have a 24 inch on my last TC and a 4,000 lb boat. It towed very well. Make sure your hitch is strong enough. You may not hurt the extension, but could tweak the truck frame or hitch. I'd not worry about your situation though. It sounds fine.
