Equalizer vs Andersen Hitch Which One ?
I have decided I am going to replace my old hitch setup that uses the friction sway control for either an Equalizer 1200 or Andersen setup. I have no issues with the old setup other than having to use a shank that is too long from a previous tow vehicle and having to remove the sway control when backing up so it’s time for a change.
My TV is a 2015 RAM 2500 Diesel and my TT is a Rockwood 2703 that loaded is around 7500lbs tongue weight is listed at 643 so I would guess at max loaded no more than 1000lbs or so which includes stuff I am carrying in the bed behind the rear axle. I am torn between which one to get I like the simplicity of the Andersen with 8” drop and it’s light weight and relative ease of setup. I like the Equalizer because I can get the 2.5” shank with the 6” drop down and tried and true design that gets good reviews I know it’s heavier and probably alittle tougher to get dialed in.
So I would appreciate any feedback both pros and cons of each setup.
