Default weight distributing hitch for 2720

I have ordered a new Trailmanor 2720 with swing-around hitch.
I plan on using a weight distributing hitch.
The "Draw-Tite" spring bars are 30" long.
Is there any interference between the swing-around hitch & weight distributing hitch?

I have a Reese round bar WDH and a swing tongue TM and haven't had any interference between the spring bars and the swing tongue components. Draw-Tite and Reese are two brands of the same company and, AFAIK, hitch parts are pretty much the same for both brands. I would be very surprised if you have any interference between your WDH and tongue's swing parts...there have not been any such reports here at TMO.com since TM introduced the swing tongue beginning with, IIRC, the '02 models.

Same here. I have a 2720SL, swing tongue, and Reese square (rectangular) bars shaped for the dual-cam, and there is no interference. I'm sure TM took this into account before putting the swing tongue on the market.
