Hitch recommendation

Hi there! I have tried to search the thread for an answer, but I am getting a bit confused. We are looking to get a 154BH Baja. I will be towing with a 2005 double cab tundra. The dealer is trying to sell us the Equal-i-zer® 4-Point Sway Control hitch. Is this a good set up? Do you have a recommendation for another hitch?

Any information is appreciated! Thanks

I use a Blue Ox Sway Pro WDH and love it. It works great and setup is pretty simple. I actually just ordered a new one for our new camper (new camper is an underslung coupler).

You won't be disappointed with the Equalizer!

Huge fan of the Equal-I-Zer hitch. Have never had a problem with it. That being said, there are a lot of very good hitches on the market. I guess it depends on who you ask. But basically, they all do just about the same thing.

I agree with TWO723: I'm an Equal-I-Zer hitch fan and owner, too.

Although basically all weight distribution hitches do the same thing, they use different anti-sway methods.

I agree as well. There are a lot of good hitches. Just make sure you get both components, sway control and weight distribution.

I wouldn't use anything but the Equalizer on a bumper pull trailer. It's a top notch setup with lots of adjustability, easy to use, and has great built in sway control.

The Equal-I-Zer system is very good. Couple minor down sides are if you buy a bigger trailer you will need to buy a completely new system as you can not buy just the bars. The other is when compared to the Reese SC system (very similar to the 4 way) the Equal-I-Zer hitch head does not have as much fine tuning adjustability as the Reese hitch head does. But as I mentioned, very minor.

But you can not go wrong with either system!!!

Good luck with the new rig!!!

I have a blue Ox sway pro and love it. Easy to set up, and if you upgrade to a larger trailer all you need is new bars.
