The object behind wd is this
as you load the hitch with tounge weight you lighten the front axel weight.
ie. you scaled at 5220, put a big trailer on the bumper pull and you may weigh 4800 on the front axel. you use wd in this example to get that weight back on the front.
but yes for what I am pulling i am not taking much if any weight off the front axel to utilize weight distribution
now I need a bigger hauler.
the wife and I love the hauler we have. I wanted a 5vr but did not want 40ft of trailer. The only 5vr's I could find that fit our needs were 40ft...from a reputable company If someone made a 30ish ft 5vr hauler with open garage floorplan they would sell. My only other option was a custom cargo trailer conversion, they are spendy,heavy and offer no plush nor storage. My buddy has a 32ft mirage by balboa. Nice hauler, but all his grills, chairs and other accesories are on the floor of the hauler...not my style
