then why not order the Equalizer from RVW. $447 with free shipping.
you'd save almost $250. that's where i and many others have ordered theirs from.

Thanks everyone. Like I said I'm new to having a TT. Actually still waiting in it. That's just a price at another place. I'm not purchasing there.

Sounds like most people like the equal I zer.

Like I said, I don't think you can go wrong with either the Equal-i-zer or the Reese DC. RVW sells the Reese, too.

If you are new and you order yourself, see if you can negotiate your RV dealer to install the hitch for you as part of the delivery process or for a very small fee.

Its not hard to do by yourself, but the Reese will require some drilling into the frame and the Equal-i-zer requires you to own or borrow some special tools. Here are the instruction manuals for both (Reese and Equal-i-zer).

I would prob go with the equalizer brand myself and the p2 controller is one of the best I have ever used personally there is a better hitch anti sway system for sale used in the classifieds or it was anyway. just like the hensly arrow a little over kill for what you have just bought but go any bigger and prob perfect.

http://www.propridehitch.com/product...ol-Hitch-.html but pricey

and higher yet lol but the best there is http://hensleymfg.com/

I have to join the consensus, in that either are great.
I prefer the P3, but any Prodigy is a good choice, as well.

That's right. An LCD screen and some interesting diagnostics with the P3. The actual controller is the same.

I can only speak of the Equal-i-zer, have the 12K/1200 unit and it works AWESOME! Had zero issues using it with our 35' TT, never experienced any problems with crosswind, passing trucks, etc. etc. Was a bit fiddly to set up correctly, infact, after initial setup I had to re-do it with camper loaded as it really did change from empty to loaded. (Yes, instructions tell you to set up with TT loaded but it was brand new when I installed, did not have a chance to load it up!)
If you are in or near DFW you can buy mine! We no longer have the TT and I have a 5th wheel on order.
