I've got the AWDH and running with the TT in my sig. Does a great job with sway, but I agree it didn't do much for putting weight back to my front axle. I've got a relatively light trailer though so it's not too bad.

I just got the straight line and am trying to get 100% return to the front with no luck (so far). I guess I'll stay away from the Anderson if that's a problem witt them. Thanks for the info.

Hi I hope this post is not to old. I bought a new 2012 V- Lite 30WRLS in 2013 at the time I had a 97 F250 super cab 8ft. bed 4X4 Diesel. I had the dealer install a Fastway E2 hitch. I towed the trailer without any problems. in 2014 I bought a 08 F250 super cab 8ft. bed 4X4 Diesel. The trailer does not seem to be as stable as it was with the 97. I took it back to the dealer to see if the hitch needed to be readjusted because the o8 is higher than the 97 was. They seems to think everything was ok. I still do not feel that it is right. I also get a little motion at about 62 miles an hour. What I'm after is do you folks think the Anderson hitch would be better? I know it would be better for connecting and unconnecting. It is a pain jacking the trailer up after you have the hitch connected to put the bars on.

Sounds like you need to go through the setup and check everything out. You are correct with the taller truck can make a big difference on how much weight is transferred to the front axle
