We have an Equalizer. We bought it because that is what the RV dealer had available to sell us. I have never done any research on these hitches, so I have no idea what is out there. Seems to work fine for us.

My only complaint is the creaking and popping noises while turning.

Who-knows-what brand hitch with a couple of Reese spring bars. Bought at auction on an opening bid ($5.00) because I thought I knew what it was....

Turned out it was parts from 2 different hitches and needed $125 in chains and clamps.

Works great!

I went with the Equalizer 4 point with sway control. Have had no issues at all with this and when the big trucks go by there's no suction action. Having them come head on no sway at all but I do have mine set to within 200lbs difference for front and back weights. Set up is everything on an sway bar config.

I have an EAZ-LIFT 1000# bars did not see that on the poll.

I have used it with two small trailers less then 6000# with no problems.
