I am looking at a newer travel trailer that has a hitch weight of 914 pounds, which is only about 16 pounds below the max for the tow package on the titans. I assume this is dry hitch weight since it is the weight listed on the spec sheet. I know it is very high for most travel trailers but this is a V front which I heard is common with those types. Now if I use a weight distribution hitch will that allow for more hitch weight on my truck since it actually does spread it out? Or is it still best to maintain the manufacture specs of 930 pounds? Any help would be great. The dry weight of the trailer is only 5402, so that is not a problem. I really like the trailer but don't plan on getting it if I can't store anything up front since it would add weight to the hitch. Thanks

That's part of what a WD hitch does so yes, you can have a much higher tongue weight because the WD hitch will take some of that weight off the rear end of the truck. I believe mine is closer to about 1200 LBS on the tongue. You can also change the tongue weight by how you store stuff in the trailer.
