All fears have been allayed. Did a quick overnight an hour away to check everything out. The 184bh pulled great with no WDH or sway control. Took regular hitch and the Equalizer to our PDI. Service tech didn't recommend using that large of a hitch. Said it might be okay with the lighter weigh bars.

Actually, he didn't think I would need anything and he was right. Anything smaller than our suburban might need more control. No sway and no bouncing or bucking. Could hardly tell it was back there unless we were on an incline.

Next stop Degray Lake in Arkansas for 4 days next week.

Yea, I'm that good

I'll give you it was a short trip but it included Dallas traffic, mostly interstate, and a bumpy country road.

How long of a trip does it take to make you feel confident in your tow set up?

Clutch - it occurred to me that I may have read into your statement. I took it to mean you felt that wasn't enough time to evaluate the set up. Difficult to decipher tone in a written statement at times. My apologies

I almost said something this morning but I let it pass. The way I interpreted Clutch's statement was: "see, all you needed was a quick test to assure yourself all was good to go".

Inflection is difficult to assess in the written word.

You don't have to go very far or long to know if it is right. If it is not correct you will know right away.
