Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could help, I am new to caravans.

We have just bought a Jayco Expanda Outback caravan and need to pick it up in eastern states. I would like to sort out the load dist. hitch before we go (from WA) and also the trailer brakes.

Does anyone know what LD hitch is best suited to this caravan with a 200 series landcruiser?

Also any suggestions on trailer brakes, and how they are done?

Personal preference basically. Providing that the caravan has a standard ball type hitch.

The Hayman Reese seems to be the most popular WDH.

Trailer brakes will be electric so get a reputable Auto Lec to fit one of the better known brands such as Tekonsha. Hayman Reese also have one.

When you talk to Hayman Reece, make sure they understand you have a 200 Series. There is a special model for it.

Tekonsha Prodigy is about the best. Get your Toyota Dealer to install it so that all the important wires are avoided and there's no issue in the future with warranty.

I agree with these guys above ,Hayman Reece WDH and I went the Tekonsha Prodigy but the H/R is also good Just make sure you do need a WDH as there not cheap,heavy and some times not necessary ?

Regards John.

Are you sure there is a special for the 200...??? I think you have to get the max. drop which is 150mm. But anyway, even with the lowest drop you still have to fiddle about to get the van/200 level.
I have a 200 with an underslung Jayco Sterling and at delivery, I tried Coast to Coast, Reese (USA) and HR. HR was the only one with max. drop as above that would work.
I have a Tekonsha Prodigy but it is all I have ever had so can't say whether it is best....!!!

Don, I believe you have to ask for the "150mm" offset. Maybe that's just part of their range. I haven't got mine yet so just going on what I've read. Sounds like you've got the right one.

cheers
