    Hello and welcome. Wisdom, DON'T go with an extension. Those things chage the stress's on the frame and void frame warranties. If you were going with a smaller trailer, you might be OK, but the trailer your talking about is going to be heavy. Don't do it.

    If your only moving 4 or 5 times a year, take the hitch out of the truck. Let it hang off the kingpin while not in use.
