Equalizer and couldn't be happier as we are a tad close on our weight limits. We asked many, many questions of the factory before making our choice. They were very helpful.

Eaz-Lift is what I have. It works fine for me. The chains are kind of pain to deal with when the RV is not on level ground and I am hitching up. It does the job though so I have no plans to spend any money changing it for something else.

I run with the Andersen hitch. TV is '07 Chev Silverado 3500HD XC LB SRW. TT is a 2015 28BHBE smooth wall. The setup tows very smooth, but all weight removed from front axle is not returned to it.

I have one from harbor freight. Laid side by side with my SIL's equalizer they are identical. I'm sure out of the same China factory. Just different decals.

We use a "Draw-Tite" with 12,000 lb. round bars. When I purchased it years ago the dealer said "You don't need that much hitch" I said "Yes you are right but, I won't have to upgrade it if I change trailers" That and the friction sway control have worked well for us.

Reese 1200 lbs. Heavy Duty Round Bar WD Hitch. We used to use a friction sway controller as well, but after we got a full sized truck we don't need the sway controller anymore. Our trailer is 20' foot long and weighs less then 6000 lbs. wet.

Equal-i-zer hitches are made in the USA.
