Bought our new-to-us Sienna van today, it is at the RV shop, plan to tow our Escape
to the Oregon gathering Friday, and the RV guy said the hitch is low (we could see that) but we should try it. Since it is at the shop over night, I don't know the clearance, he said we could buy a new tow kit with an adjustable ball from him - it is of course pricey.
We just got our hitch in March in BC when we bought the Escape
, it has weight
distribution bars, the kit he has does too, but I read on a Sienna forum something about air bags or air distribution kits, which we would not be able to buy locally or by Friday. Mike says we'll be fine even though we will be so low since we are doing highway driving and staying in a State Park, not likey to run into low spots.
I am totally confused - do air bags do a better job than weight
distribution bars? A different job? Which is better? The kit he has would raise the ball, but use same weight
We need some education here and suggestions on whether to go with the low clearance would be okay - better than buying something that is not the right solution.
