If I remember correctly, Cox told me several years ago that tongue weight on a bumper pull is maxed at 20%, and on a gooseneck it's maxed around 25%.

You got any pictures of yours?

I was thinking of a swinging door but that sounds much simpler.

You want it as smooth as possible to keep product from hanging up on it. Their last few bodies came from dejana. If I get a chance I will slide by there and take a few picks on Monday as I will be in that area.
