Proper Spring Bar for Vintage Cruiser 23BHS
We’re downsizing from a Pioneer QB300 (just under 7000 lbs, 806 lb hitch weight) to a Vintage Cruiser 23BHS (4253 lbs, 480 lb tongue weight), and I’m planning to keep the weight distribution hitch I have. It is a Husky Centerline TS, with the 800-1200 lb spring bars. I’m wondering if I can use the spring bars I have, or if I should look into replacing them with the 400-600 lb bars.
I believe some manufacturers list a “weight redistribution” amount on their trailers, I’m unsure if Gulfstream does, though (and we don’t have our new trailer yet to look). Hoping someone here can help me be prepared for when our trailer does arrive.
