I have a Centerline hitch with #1200 bars and it works excellent with my 28DSBH.

I met a fellow RVer a while ago who had the Husky Centerline hitch. He was quite pleased with the on-road performance, but said when hitching up, the TV and TT had to be in a straight line or else it was a real bear to deal with. The anti-sway hydraulic cylinders fight you. In fact Husky has even come out with a safety lanyard to keep the spring bars from swinging out and hitting you in the leg when you release them. Yikes!

Have you experienced anything like that?

Can't say that I have had the bars swing out at me. You do have to be aligned straight to hook up or unhook but I have not found this to be too much of an inconvenience. In order to hook up/ unhook you have to raise the tongue up quite high to take the pressure off the bars. This makes it much easier to release the bars.

Blue Ox Sway Pro is another really good hitch that has not been mentioned. I doubt it performs any better than the other big names but hitching and unhitching are really easy. Easier than older round bar hitches I have used.
I wish I had experience with the Equil I Zer to compare it to....

Cheers
