what a horror story! remember your gvw of 9999. even the newer model 11500. did they recertify the chassis to 11500?
by adding all that stuff to the bow, you'll well exceed both. then the manufacturer can blame you for overloading it.

good luck.

Not worried what the mfg has to say on their piss poor build and design. Out of warranty anyway.

And actually I think when I am done I will have better GVWR rating than they list now on and may I quote "same frame design" from the 9999 to the 11500...yes same frame per Lippert. Think I am going to have my local fab shop move my axes back and sub frame it as well.

Might just unload it. It's a thought process. But right now I am going to add/move or otherwise do what I have to to make it a safe tongue weight to pull.

I just finished reading the entire thread and you sir have a huge amount of patience. You should write a book.

I too was concerned about tongue weight and started researching. The more I read the more I felt I needed something quick and easy to weigh the tongue. Sure the bathroom scale leverage do the math seemed a bit more complicated so to make a long story short I purchased the Weigh Safe hitch. I loaded everything I take camping including two 660R Quads. I checked the scale and moved the quads as far back as possible along with my fuel and water containers. The photo depicts my fully loaded adjusted weight. I hope everything works out for you and your family. Thanks for posting your ordeal, I'm sure others will benefit. Tipping my hat off to you!

My father had tongue weight issues with his Stryker 2912. Just wasn't enough. Barely 11% empty. Toys had to be loaded over the axles.

Not to mention going through 2 sets of tires before I noticed the tie downs in the RV bolted through the floor and the bolts stuck into the wheel welk. The damn tires were hitting them and the belts were separating.
