I've got the Equal-i-zer 10K and have towed up to 7K (car trailer limit) with good results. No sway even in our high wind area. I have traveled with tongue weight from 10% to 15% and have not noticed any difference - but this is behind the 11,300 (unloaded) motorhome.

Thanks for the reply. My trailer has a rear cargo rack that can hold up to 200 lbs and the front and rear cargo storage is pretty equal do to the under bunk storage. Also grey water tank is behind axel so lightening the tongue weight by 100 lbs may not be that difficult if needed.

Thanks for all the responses, I'm feeling much better about my trailer / vehicle combination. A lot of people have recommended the equalizer, but haven't heard much about the other hitch I am considering which is the propride. Any thoughts on the propride with my vehicle and trailer? Also would 11% tongue weight with the equalizer be enough tongue weight?

TW is supposed to be around 10-15 percent when properly loaded. That'll be fine the the eq 4pt

Well you must have read the reviews of ProPride on their website? I have mine since 2011 and have no complaints and no sway at all. I have not pull with the equalizer so can not give you a proper feedback comparison. It will work with your vehicle and trailer but it is 100 lbs more of tongue weight......

I have never used the Equalizer or Propride but I can't say enough good things about my Reese Dual Cam set-up.

I have this WDH in conjunction with this sway control

When I used to tow our TT with my Dodge half-ton, it was NIGHT & DAY difference. Without it passing tractor trailers and wind gusts would make the trailer sway behind my TV but with it I could FEEL the difference. My TV & TT would move but together (without swaying).

I have since upgraded to a F-350 and having a vehicle that weighs more than the trailer makes a world of difference but I still use the WDH & sway control set-up. It is that good...

I don't know the propride but did tow my Windjammer with Expedition and Husky WD for two seasons. It took few trys to get the hitch balanced for best comfort, but towed great.

I tow a Grey Wolf 26RR with an Escalade ESV and a Pro Series 10K hitch. The hitch weight is about 750 lbs ....max payload is about 1550 and max hitch weight is 1K. Loaded trailer weight is about 6900 lbs. We carry most of our stuff in the trailer to prevent going over payload/axle ratings and it tows just fine....
