I find it interesting that Grand Design provides a left/right weight amount. That would be good information to know on my trailer.

512# difference, I guess since it loads out at 14k, 512 more on the left is irrelevant.

The kitchen slide is heavier, that's why the left side is more. My Momentum is the same way.

Nothing that 512#s of Bush's beans on the lite side won't cure and make for an interesting camping trip.

That 512# difference grows to even more difference once the fridge and pantry are stocked. I haven't weighed it side to side when loaded for travel.

When loading the basement I load the heavy items i.e generator, tools cast iron hibachi etc. on the passenger side.

This particular vehicle doesnít have the 5th wheel hitch prep, so an additional computation will be required.

Thanks,

I seem to remember the option weight for the fifth-wheel prep package was ~106 lbs (for 2016 trucks). I'm guessing the B&W would be in the same ball-park. I like that 5990 FAWR. I wish I had ignored the Ford ordering guide and upgraded my front axle. The standard 5200# rating is too close to the empty axle load for the truck. It seems like a 1-liter soda on the dash can push you over 5200.

I pull a 6k landscape trailer around town daily and tight turns that put the trailer suspension into similar conditions as the image above are required to maneuver tight city streets and cul-da-sacs.

Last year, first time in 22 years, I broke my very first stub axle. I have no idea when it happened but fairly sure it was in an area of road construction that required many tight turns just prior to pulling over for a quick stop at a shopping center. I didn't know the rear tire was missing until I stopped at a shopping center and was walking back to my truck and trailer and noticed the following.



Please don't make it a habit of making those tight of turns or you could be in for a set of these.



The above image is a standard 3500# axle and 10" electric brake kit, I replaced the equalizer and all shackle straps at the same time since I was this far into the suspension. Total cost of parts above, $350, about three hours of my labor and a welding machine was required to make the repairs. I would assume a 5k axle setup would be more expensive to replace.

You would go with the B&W vs the Ford Factory 5th Kit?

The factory 5th wheel goose neck kit fits nicely, that is the one I would use.

The B&W is the one most trailer dealers install.

I agree that the Ford kit is nicer but would probobly be more than a B&W unless it came factory installed.
