I suspect what some are actually trying to say is that although Toyota states a weight
at which a WD must be used Toyota also requires the truck and trailer to be level -so if the truck is not level & regardless of how much the trailer actually weighs, a WD hitch will be needed to level the truck or changes made to your trailers set up to lighten the tongue weight
until the truck levels.
I also suspect that some here realize that the model of Casita
you have purchased tends to be heavy on the tongue (more so than some other models of Casita's) and with two propane
tanks it may result in the truck not being as level as Toyota wants it. You did mentioned that you can actually see the back end of the truck go down when you hook up & even though the front appears to be firmly on the ground its possible that the truck may not be level. The concern is that if the truck is not level it can have an negative impact on the trucks handling under not so good conditions such as a wet road or a fast stop.
Sorry I probable didn't use the correct terminological in explaining that
& am sure you will make the correct choice. I just wanted to try and explain why some are still questioning the possible need for a WD and it may not be simple because they firmly believe in using them regardless.
