Can't decide between Blue Ox Pro Sway or Equalizer 4 point Anti Sway

Cannot decide so hoping I can get to pro and cons on these two. My biggest concern is sway. Will one of the two do a better job with helping to prevent sway? I know its not 100 0/0, but I'm sure one will do better than what I had on my old TT, the ProSeries WDH kit with friction bar. Thank for any help you can offer me.

Haven't picked up TT, should be coming soon in soon

I meant "Blue Ox Sway Pro" lol

I only have experience with the blue Ox and it's wonderful. Very easy to adjust. I've passed and been passed by many tractor trailers and have never had the trailer flinch... I'm buying another blue Ox for the new trailer as I have not one bad thing to say about them.

People are going to have opinions but most likely they owned one or the other and can't help you "compare". Personally, I towed my 36' Outback using the equalizer hitch many miles up and down I95 and never has an issue with sway control. If I had bought another TT instead of the 5'er I would use the equalizer hitch. The company has great customer service too! Had a question, called and promptly answered.

I for one have the Equal-I-Zer hitch and am very happy with it's performance. That said, I have a friend that has the Blue Ox system and swears by it. In my opinion, both will perform and do what they're advertised to do. Not sure if you can go wrong regardless of your decision. Good luck and happy camping!!

When I bought my trailer it had a blue ox on it but it was underrated (800lbs). I Told the previous owner to keep the hitch, knock off some money, and I bought a 1000lb Equalizer. I see so many trailers with underrated bars. Whichever one you get, make sure it's rated appropriately.
