Newbie needs help WDH for single Axle 154BH
I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with deciding if we should get a WDH for our new 154BH which is a single axle. I have seen on a few forums that it could bend the A frame, is this true?
I am the one who does the computer research in the family, but my husband will be driving the truck (2014 GMC Sierra 1500). He thinks we need a WDH to help with the sway. He drives a box truck for his volunteer job but never used a trailer. Would we be better off just getting sway bars instead of a WDH (with sway control)?
I have read Andersen hitches are great, but is it safe with a single axle TT?
Our dealer and a local RV service business are both saying they would put on a E2 WDH, not sure what size bars. I am assuming they are referring to a FASTAWAY brand. I think the dealer said 1,000 but this seemed too high for what I have read.
I know there are round and Trunnion, and both are 2 point. Is that enough or do we need the 4 point instead? I heard the Anderson is better since you don't need to disconnect before backing up, is this true?
If we get the sway bars only is it something a couple of novices can install, or should it be done by the dealer?
We have 2WD long bed, so the manual says Max trailer weight is 10,200 and GCWR is 15,000 so we are well within the weight issues. The 154BH is GVWR of 3450 lb.
Max tongue weight for TV without the WDH is 800, vs 1200 with.
I have also heard about airbags, is this a better option? Brand preference? How difficult are they to install?
I have learned a lot in the last few days, but still feel like I am over my head, this is all a new world to me. Any advice you can give me would be helpful.
