Are you asking about towing behind a motorhome?

If so, then whole car weight matters, but only if it exceeds your hitches capacity. If you are flat towing, there's no hitch weight. If you're dolly towing, then the front end of the car does put hitch weight down on a ball.

Or are you talking about triple towing?
