We use weight distribution hitches now. Up until a few years ago there was a company called Stinger that made helper wheels. They are out of business. When all is said and done, a W/D is far better than helper wheels.
On another note, back in those days, no one worried about how fast they were going to tow up a steep grade, then again, they didn't have the I system either.
