I have both an old fashioned reese and an old fashion husky wd hitches to choose from, one i had with the old TT, one came with the new TT. I towed with both and never had any sway...Dealer is telling me I should sell both used and buy an equalizer, but that seems like a lot of money considering I never had swaying...WHAT WOULD YOU DO? Buying it would mean less site fees and less fuel to go camping...

I suppose it depends. If the old systems have the proper sized spring bars and tow ratings for the new trailer and have sway control I see no need to buy the Equalizer.

Looks like Reese and Equalizer products are dominating the voting with 50 votes each.

I am using the same Reese pro system my dad bought 35 years ago V-5 trunions with an Eaz-lift sway. It has to have well over 75,000 miles on it.
I have a new adjustable head shank for it.
