Hi, Azhiph, and
A 2010 Navigator receiver has a hitch capacity of 600 pounds with a weight-carrying (WC) hitch, and 900 pounds with a weight-distributing (WD) hitch.
If your Navigator has the heavy duty
towing pkg, then with a WD hitch and with nothing in the SUV but a skinny driver, without being overloaded you can tow a trailer that grosses up to 9,000 pounds or that has hitch weight of up to 900 pounds, whichever comes first. However, if you have the regular towing pkg, then the max trailer weight is 6,000 pounds and the max tongue weight is 600 pounds without being overloaded
Now pulling a TT with 550# hitch weight with no bouncing. If new TT is 750# hitch, will I get rhythmic bounce and if yes, what to do?
If your Navigator does not have the HD Towing pkg, then you cannot tow a trailer with more than 600 pounds hitch weight. If your Navigator does have the HD towing pkg, then you must have a weight-distributing hitch properly installed and adjusted for the actual wet and loaded tongue weight of your trailer. With a properly-installed and adjusted WD hitch, you should have no problem with rhythmic bouncing.
