You will want the tongue weight(weight on the ball) to be 10% of the total weight of the trailer.

Nice score btw.

Looks really cool. You even have stereo speakers in the sleeping chamber!

Detach it from your ride and walk it away until it looks far enough..

Great catch! I like the 2\3in foam pad that comes with it that's cool.

Good idea, I thought that the PVC was for flotation =D.

Are you gonna clean it before every ride? like bleach or clorox to get the mold out?

I'm thinking, based on what I don't really know anything about , that you want at least the length from your receiver tube to the edge of the rear bumper as your tongue length. Think of a "L" shape...

You could park the 80 and roll the camper up perpendicular to the 80 and measure the distance that way as well.

As for switching out the hitch...Depends if you plan to drag it and drop the trailer somewhere before the wheeling starts or if you plan to pull the trailer through the trails. What you have now doesn't really like too much articulation. The scoring on my ball from the popup after getting it into Area BFE @ CM10 tells me I pushed it to the limit just doing that little amount of "wheeling"
