Here is the link for info: http://www.fastwaytrailer.com/e2/
You got enough truck for that trailer?

I have a new Outback on the way that's going to be around 7500lbs dry, and I'll probably go to a dual cam for that one.
I stumbled across the reference to the single friction bar I referred to in an earlier post; I know where I got the info from now....

Back in Sept '09 I had emailed our dealer regarding the major sway we were having with the Huskey WDH with single bar they installed. I had quoted a paragraph in the Huskey User Manual that came with the hitch. It stated that anything longer than 26' should have two stabilizing bars. Of course, it probably was just relating to their product.

I had an Equalizer on my first Jayco (232 HTT) and it worked very well. When I got my 32BHDS I went ahead and got a Hensley Arrow, which also works very well

We did have a failure with our Equalizer and there is an easy fix for this which I should post in a new thread
Finally remembered to start a thread regarding a fix for older Equalizers if they "fail". Here. Hope this helps

Planning to travel through the Rockies so wanted enough truck plus enough to handle a larger TT or 5thW if we wanted to up-size. So far I'd say it's "enough truck" :hihi:

I thought my old setup was good... till I added the H.A. What a difference.

I would love to have a H.A. hitch,
but alas, my budget does not yet allow for the $3500 cost.
