Has anyone installed a WDH on their EcoDiesel? I grew up on a farm where we regularly towed 10k pound trailers but always used the bumper mounted hitch. Is there a significant advantage to these? What brands have you used?
That's the brand I was looking at as well. I'm trying to understand how any light truck manufacturer can sell a truck like this without this hitch if it's basically a necessity, which from all accounts I've read say it is.
A WD hitch doesn't get installed on your truck. It's fits into the receiver of your existing hitch. It contains the ball and a couple of long bars that get attached to the sides of the trailer tongue.
You need a distribution hitch if your load makes the back of the truck sag. It levels the entire rig, distributes the load across both axles of the truck and the axles on your trailer more evenly. It also helps with sway.
A trailer place should be able to give you a good recommendation and will also have the hitches on site for you to see.
