Hi, The Manual says that the PP is designed to tow w/o the need for a load distributing hitch. But it also says if you want to use one to consult your trailer dealer. I have a 2019 PP with OEM hitch and tranny cooler. I put a deposit down on a R-Pod 189 last week,. But an MRI the next day showed some back issues and I am seeing the orthopedic surgeon Monday. So I got my deposit back. I did not want to have a brand new trailer and not be able to take off if I have to undergo any procedures and then rehab, which I have had to in the past. That being said, I discussed the issue of of a weight distributing hitch with the RV dealer and they said, w/o really pushing, they thought is would be a good idea to install one. But they also said I could try it w/o one and have one installed later if I chose to. I decided I was going to go ahead and have one installed. Considering the trailer was $25k and the PP is $40k I felt it was worth the extra $ to be on the safe side. They recommended the Curt load distributing/anti-sway setup. It allows you to back up w/o disconnecting the setup. They also recommend the Prodigy brake controller. Both of these are available on Amazon for much less then the RV dealer. They said I could buy both and they would install at a nominal fee. From what I understand though, the controller is an EZ install. You just have to adjust it to your setup.
Please let us know what you decide and how the R-Pod tows with the setup you choose. The 195 is quite a bit heavier that the 189 I was going to get so it will be helpful to know how it all works out for you. I hope you enjoy your trailer. We will get ours in the Fall for sure.
