I personally use the Reese Dual Cam 2 hitch and love the fact it combines weight distribution and active sway control. After setting it up, all you do is connect the weight bars and your system is ready to tow. [emoji6]

Yes I am. Gave me the option when I purchased the travel trailer to get the equalizer finance with the vehicle for $1000 I just thought that was expensive. So now I have to buy the equalizer bar out right. I know there are different name brands was wondering if anyone had any experience with the fast way or the Husky

I have a Fastway e2. It works well enough. I put equalizer bracket jackets on the L brackets. Make sure you know your loaded tongue weight and get the next size up. https://www.pplmotorhomes.com/search?query=Fastway+e2

ID:	51384Equalizer gets my vote. Best money Iíve spent. Upgrade from a husky round bar the dealer sold me. Only had one friction sway bar. Had all kinds of problems. After switching Iíve had zero problems. Attached is where I bought mine. Best deal I could find.

The Best hitch is Propride . I have a 1500 Ram and a 30 foot whitehawk with this setup words can't describe how great this hitch is totally eliminates sway .

As ynpmoose stated, I picked up an Equalizer from the Facebook marketplace and I think it's great. I didn't want to deal with chains and wanted quality. My two friends, Google and YouTube told me about the quality of the Equalizer and how it works. They were right.
