Yes, I called BAL/NORCO, they are the ones that made the frame, they said it's ok to use a weight distributing hitch as long as the spring bars are not over 1,000 lbs. I am using 800 lb. bars, I had a set of 600 lb. bars but they would have been to lite.
I called Jayco and they said that the hitch height for the 221 is 22".
I ended up setting the ball height on my 1500 truck at 23 1/4" this extra 1 1/4" allowed for the truck squat when loaded.
We like our 221 very much, I wish you the very best.
