My father in law is attempting to over come a too large 34' camp trailer with his Ram 1500 swaying like a beotch.
He ordered one of these: I'm thinkin he will be hurting himself or others as his truck is too small. No matter how much shit he tries.

Honestly I see that shit as a band aid to a much more serious problem. With all the bolts and crap there's more chance of a failure.

Try a blue ox. I switched to one over a traditional weight distribution hitch and the difference was night and day.

I had an 86 3/4 ton 2wd Chevy. 350/400 combo. I pulled a 12k fifth wheel, I used some one ton rear leaf springs under the rear end. Handled the weight just fine. Also worked good for pulling the cab over camper and the botë. Rode a little stiff unloaded, but not unreasonable.

Maybe upgrading the rear springs to 3/4 ton would help.

Looks pretty level but that truck is maxed out throw some grades at it and it’s only a matter of time, engine, tranny, rear end, brakes.
