A weight distribution hitch does not reduce your tongue weight, it only transfers some of it from the rear axle to the front. If you exceed your tongue weight, you will quickly exceed the GVWR of the Armada.creeksidemike said:I am looking at a Crossroads Cruiser CT32SB trailer and the trailer has a tongue weight of 1200lbs. I know the max tongue weight is 1000 lbs but I of course will be using a weight distribution hitch. Having said that will the weight distribution hitch reduce the overall tongue weight on the trailer to less than 1200lbs and I would be ok? Looking for some feedback to see if anyone else has tried more than 1000lbs.
