Question Blue Ox

To all of you who use the Blue Ox SwayPro hitch; What do you think of the hitch, does it work well, & any other reports on this hitch would be greatly appreciated.
Upgrading to a larger TT & this is what the dealer recommends.

Thanks for any info

Only had one voyage yet with it this year. About 160 mi trip. Felt better than the wdh only I had used on my 23ikss for its one trip last year. Next two trips are a 500mi round trip and 1000 mi round trip in July. Previously had a 21rbss and just the wdh with never any sway. The 23ikss with just the wdh set off the sway warning light on the dash and shut down the engine. Never saw that with the 21rbss for the 5 years I owned it. There are a lot of equalizer owners on the forum (same price range) that sware by them.

We have had the blue ox sway pro for two years now on our 26' V-Lite. We've put approx. 20,000 kilometres on the trailer. No issues with the hitch.

OK, clarification, no throttle response and engine reduced to an idle while driving ~65mph.

We have the Blue Ox sway pro and are VERY happy with it. We recently pulled our Wildcat MAXX 28RKX ( 33' travel trailer) from Seattle to Iowa, 2,000 miles with my 2011 Ram hemi. We were hoping to have our airride 2015 Ram Laramie for the trip but it was not delivered yet.
The hitch is a dream to use and really does a great job. Yes, you can tell when a semi going 20 mph faster than you passes, however, there is no sway and the hitch does a great job of distributing the tongue weight. I HIGHLY recommend this WD system!!!
