Guys, I'll get to reading all of the 90 some posts in due time, but just want to get opinions from those who have used them....


I just bought a 2014 Jay Flight 28BHBE (7042lbs dry and 700lbs dry hitch). On my previous RV I had a husky WD setup + a friction sway control... Now want something better. Looking here and there and I can't seem to find good reviews that compares the 3 main in the industry:

- Husky Centerline
- Reese Dual Cam with WDH
- Equal-I-Zer

I'll be going for a 1000lbs minimum capacity and would like to have a system that is:
- less noisy as possible (as road noises drive me crazy!!!)
- you can back up without disconnecting
- Gives great sway control (the friction system I have now was not the greatest....I found out that maybe my RV hitch weight was too small, so back end too heavy which enduced sway...but...)

Anyone used one model then the other?


I was leaning towards the Husky Centreline because of the active sway control as opposed to the ones that have a reactive control... and I don't really mind the "having to be in a 5degree to straight angle" to hook up.

Thanks

The Reese HP Dual Cam WDH (Reese Strait-Line WDH) has "pro-active" (not reactive) integrated sway control...., this is accomplished by the constant force of the WDH spring bar tail radius being applied over the Cam surface. With the constant force over the cam surface the Reese Dual Cam system is always working at keeping the TT towing in a straight line behind the TV.

Thanks.... Yes I just noticed the cams on the Reese systems.... Is it a noisy system with the chains?

.... no chain noise with the HP Dual Cam because the spring bar is the only component that moves, the Cam Arm and snap-up bracket chain are stationary even during TV turns. A little Vaseline (no grease) over the cam surface keeps that area quiet with the heavier tongue weights (1,200lbs plus), and some grease in the ball mount spring bar sockets just about eliminates all the noise.

I've towed through all the lower 48 states and 3 Canadian provinces with the Hensley.

I use the husky centerline and can't say enough good things about it. I think it's worth it's weight in gold with controlling Sway etc

It looks like an amazing setup but the price is kinda out of reach!

Husky. Seems to work well, although I've only driven it home from the dealer (about 6 miles). Question: is it suppose to moan like that when you go around a corner?
