YW!!! I have used the Reese DC (original u bolt model and new version) without any complaints. And a buddy had the Equal-I-Zer 4 way system, no complaints there either. You can't go wrong with any of those three. While I don't have any first hand knowledge of the Reese SC system (Motorbreath referenced this also), I did talk to a guy that had the system for an enclosed trailer he hauled a drag car in. He said he had absolutely no complaints. Would buy the SC model again without hesitation! As Motorbreath mentioned, the SC model uses a brake pad type pad (replicable) for the friction against the bars. I almost went with the SC (even having owned the original DC) because of the easier set up, but in talking to Reese they swayed me (pun intended) into the DC again. We pretty much pack the same way in the trailer, so I wasn't concerned about needing to re-adjust the DC. Only thing that does vary is if we take firewood and how much we do take depending on how long the trip is. I do try to keep the firewood as close to the cab as possible though. I do need to check the set up in the spring after adding the rear cargo hitch/bike rack/bikes.
The only complaint I guess I could say about the DC is the dealer did not mount the cam arm brackets like they should have on the trailer tongue. Brackets don't sit quite right. I will be looking at what I can do come spring when our trailer comes out of winter hibernation.
What is the msrp of the trailer optioned the same way per Jayoc's website? You should be able to get close to if not 30% off msrp (pretax, title, license, etc), possibly more. Can't recall the exact % off we got, but it was just over 30% if I remember right. That included the Reese Dual Cam (1500lb bars) w/ the Reese Titan 2.5" shank.
