how the E2 can be awsome at controling sway, i mean side to side sway or if you prefer fishtailing ? My understanding is the the up and down movement is controled at the L bracket where the bars are sliding back and forth , but there is no friction point at the hitch head on the E2 as far as i know so the E 2 cant do a lot for fishtailing , maybe there is something there that i dont understand ?

Yes there is side to side friction on the L brackets. The weight on the bars themselves help prevent sway

My bad you are absolutly right, however the E4 is superior according to equalizer because of the additional friction point at the hitch head.....thanks for the correction !

I would say it's your hitch. Never used one so I can't comment really on how good or bad the hitch is. I pull a 33 bhds Whitehawk with my F150 5.0 using a Blue Ox Swaypro with no problems. I watch my speed when towing and never go over 62 mph. Max weight on my trailer is 8600 but probably only tow with about 8000 max. Do I wish I had a 250or 350 yes, but as an everyday driver usually putting 15k plus a year mile wise city driving wouldn't cut it for me. I average 12-12.9 mpg towing and 17-18 driving around in the city.

I use a sway control only on our set up and may go to a WDH in addition to it. I do find that it lessens the sway considerably when I have it connected, although it has an annoying groan from it when we turn.

This may help for your cat scale search
