Re: Here's why I needed a Hemi

I wouldn't see why it would need it..... my WK non-airbag suspension of course has no problems, even when nearing the max tongue weight (same for WK2) of 785lbs.......

So, no doubt the QL equipement can handle it too.

I run around 10% tongue weight so in normal configuration it will have about 500lbs on the tongue. The QL can handle that without any issue. In fact, I know people that routinely tow 7000 lbs on the Cayenne's without an equalizer because for the first 4 years of production Porsche said weight distributing hitches were not compatible with the air suspension. Airstream worked with them a few years back to test and show that properly setup they work just fine. I think Porsche was afraid people would not adjust them properly and the air suspension would have trouble staying level. BTW, Continental makes both systems and yes, it can handle 700 additional lbs on the tongue without an issue as long as you don't go up and down a lot or throw another 500 lbs in the back (the compressor get's a tad hot at those pressures).

If I were to go above 500 or 600 lbs I would investigate a height distributing hitch but it tows just fine the way it is and the QL has no trouble keeping it level.

Re: Here's why I needed a Hemi

I recently purchased a weight distributing hitch but haven't tried it out yet. I ordered an Equal-i-zer Hitch (http://www.equalizerhitch.com) from etrailer.com. I settled on this one because it was one of the few that is compatible with surge breaks and I don't need a tongue pole adapter for my straight-tonge boat trailer. I'll let you know how it works out after I pull the boat out of winter storage :-)
