For the tongue weight gurus!

These hitches have a built in scale for tongue weight and allow for leveling the trailer with generous drops. Looks neat but have never personally used one. Might be cheaper to get your truck/trailer on a set of scales but some will find the peace of mind comforting (if this gizmo works as advertised!).

The Weigh Safe Ball Mount system will only give you "static weight". It is not adaptable to any weight distribution system, so the "best you can expect" is to install this scale on your receiver, hitch the trailer, get your total "static" tongue load, then unhitch, install your WD hitch, rehitch and apply your WD bars. You won't be able to get any weights with the WD hitch on the rig, so all you'll know is how much the trailer tongue weighs "sitting on site, ready to connect to the tow vehicle.

Some may find it "reassuring" most will find it is very limited in functional use, sort of like having a 100 piece puzzle with 10 pieces missing.... YMMV.

I think if you want to know your tongue weight there are less-expensive ways. For example:
2019 Cougar Half Ton 26RBSWE - "Bertha"
2019 GMC Sierra 3500 Denali HD 6.6L Duramax TD, CC, 4WD, DRW - "Mr. Beefy"
