I have Blue Ox and it works great for my setup. I have had no issues with it. None.

Yep, once your TV and HTT is loaded-up for camping you will benefit from a properly sized/adjusted WDH. I also agree that a sway control device is a smart move..., even in applications where a WDH isn't required.

I had the Blue Ox on for a season and it was fine. If you don't think about which way you are turning the lever and put it on the wrong side (hard to explain), it will snap you forward when it releases. The unit is heavy so I made sure I could pick it up okay (I'm small female) before I purchased it. The disadvantage with the RPod I had was that it sat so low and the bars curve downward so they scraped in some instances turning in places. I am getting the heavier bars now to accommodate the WhiteHawk 21FBS I'm in process of purchasing so since it sits higher, I'm thinking that won't be an issue. And let me tell those of you who argue that you don't need weight distribution and sway system for lighter trailers that they make a difference. I "went without" for a couple of years and once I'd added them, I felt much safer when the big auto carriers blew past me on a windy day!

I've had two Equal-I-zer hitches with two different sized trailers. Been using them for over a decade and have had great towing experiences with both. Very stable, easy to use, no sway.
