I have the Blue Ox WDH with 1000# bars for an underslung coupler (Jay Flight 28BHBE). I have to lift it quite a bit to get the number of links I need to level the trailer and truck out. It depends on your tongue weight, I have around 800-900lb with a 7300-7500lb trailer according to a local scale.
This is my first TT and I have been very careful to setup the hitch properly. It seems to work well in normal conditions, but I have definitely experienced sway under windy conditions. I cannot imagine any sway control system which would completely eliminate sway, if the wind picks up you should reduce your speed to accommodate or pull over.
A few times I have driven a bit too fast (over 110km/h) and it definitely felt twitchy with my 1500. I keep it between 100-110 km/h and all has been good thus far.
One thing the Blue Ox has going for it over competing hitches is convenience. I have have it setup without help in less than 5 minutes. The overall construction is also high quality, with grease fittings and a heavy duty finish.

Drop hitch on Ball, clamp the hitch on Ball, place bars in the hitch holes, place chain on Bracket and turn the wench. When turning the wench to lock the chains, the TT & TV level out.
