2015 Outdoorsman EcoD CC w/6.4' 4X4
Yes the ideal is somewhere between 10%-15% whichever makes the trailer pull smooth and the weight distribution works.Question: isn't ideal tongue weight around 12%? So if they have a a 4k pound trailer and put 1k tongue weight, that's 25% and double ideal..
They went with a 1K tongue weight which is probably in the ballpark of what someone would be actually towing. The actual trailer weight didn't really matter for this demonstration. For an actual 1K tongue the trailer would be around 8K to 10K lbs.
