This is on the Equal-i-zer 4 point hitch. Where the bars plug into the hitch head, there area two squared receiver boxes that are torqued down to 75lbs and greased top and bottom as a front pivot point for the bars. This does provide some resistance to pivot, I actually have to have the bars in to rotate the boxed bar receivers.

Thanks! Now I see it..... I finally found a photo large enough to see the difference in the hitch heads. I went ahead and ordered an Equalizer, and will let the dealer sell the E2 to someone else. I'm sure the E2 is okay, but not up to the Equalizer according to everyone I heard from.

Just returned from our week vacation in FL. This was my first long trip with the new Equal-I-Zer hitch. The trip there was effortless and cut my stress to almost nothing. The "push pull" effect of the tractor trailer trucks passing was no longer there. This reduced my stress level to almost 0! I was so comfortable towing that I found myself in a one hand on the steering wheel position as I forgot the TT was there (when I realized, I went back to proper driving).

The trip home was the usual for this location, rain, wind, and thunderstorms. Last year with my old WDH and friction sway control, we got tossed around on the bridge over the bay outside Pensecola, FL on I-10 (when I decided to upgrade the hitch). Well, got to the bay and it was storming so hard that I didn't even realize we were on the bridge. Never even flinched going accross.

I will say it again, spend the money on a good hitch! You will enjoy your TT so much more! I learned the hard way!

Took possession of our Shasta Revere 21FBS LE today
had a heck of a time getting the Reese Dual Cam HP installed.
The Shasta Revere has a huge A frame and made for a tricky installation. Seems ok now, on the 1st link but still have to get the anti sway system on which should bring it down to the second link. Question is: why do I feel pull and tug while driving? like jerking?
