What's enough tongue weight? No less than 10% of the trailer's total loaded weight needs to be resting on the hitch ball (tongue weight). If a trailer weighs 1800 lbs. total with its cargo, no less than 180 lbs. needs to be resting on the hitch ball. 15% max.
great point

computeruser They do tow things surprisingly well, and are a pleasure to use in confined spaces compared to a full-size tow vehicle.
