Thanks Radio for the explanation, and thanks 2008 Wildcat for the photo. I can see the forest for the trees now!

I personally like the Reese Dual Cam setup. I use it on our Excursion and 32ft. TT with no sway at all. the EQ while OK doesn`t have the resistance to sway like the Dual Cam offers. it has the detents in the bars to keep the TT centered, while the EQ just slides back and forth with nothing other than friction to try and reduce sway. maybe I am biased, but if you look at the design of the 2 you can see how the DC would be the better hitch for controlling sway.

The Reese system works fantastic, I agree with Dodge Guy, but I will say it again...IT MUST BE INSTALLED CORRECTLY. I just spoke to a Reese Rep not to long ago, he informed me that Reese are always testing there systems, in fact they test them, installed incorrectly to see what effects there are on the equipment so when they get calls from a customer they know how and why and how to correct your problem. I had a problem with my system and I E-MAILED pic to them and they told me what I had to do. The pic are posted on this forum. They are great people to deal with.

I have a reese dual cam setup, very well built, and Reese has been in the towing business FOREVER !! Also I just bought some Hellwig helper springs that supposedly won't effect ride quality unloaded, and help with level AND stability when pulling. Another brand is Super springs, but Hellwig was 100.00 cheaper !! Randy

Equalizer is notorious for being very loud (on every turn) because they work on friction for sway control. I'd look into the more expensive ones that use cams and not friction to handle sway. Sway control is almost as important as the WD part of the equation.

I have a Reese Pro series "Dual Cam" weight distribution hitch that works Fantastic. I had a "Friction brake" mounted from the side of the tongue to the hitch, and I no longer need that now. I also bought Hellwig helper springs just to stabilize the side to side movement. I believe you'll need either the airbags or the helper springs,(they do the same thing, basically) also, just for a better road "feel". Randy
