Part of the problem is the sway bar mount. Looks like whoever welded it put it in the wrong location. The geometry is off. The way it is currently setup, when sway occurs (which really is just like a normal turn), the sway bar is not getting the proper stroke.

IMHO, you should have asked the dealer for the more capable 4pt Equal-i-zer.
Great Advice !!! E4

Properly adjusted you could take 50-70 lbs off the rear axle. Maybe put a little less in the box of the truck. I would get a different hitch. 4pt equalizer or a blue ox. I towed a grey wolf 26dbh with a half ton ram and a blue ox. No problems at all.

Thanks to everyone for the help, input, and advice. After a lot of reading I feel like although my trailer is long all the weights are well within my TV capability. Your comments have reinforced my thoughts that the WDH isn't properly adjusted. I'm going to tweak my current WDH and trailer loading to ensure good tongue weight. If that doesn't help then I will go with the equalizer hitch, if still not like I want it I'll add airbags, and then change tires. Anything I'm missing?

Can someone explain to me the difference in a 4 pt Equalizer hitch and his E2? I have the Equalizer and his E2 appears to be the same with the exception his bars are round and then flattened on one end. Setup process appears to be identical. I'm just curious and would appreciate an education.

OP, have you gone through the setup process, measuring you truck heights before and after as detailed in the instructions?

I'm wondering what is more "capable" about the Equal-I-zer? I have towed two different rigs about the size and weight of OPs TT with the E2. The only significant difference I can see between the two hitches is about $300.

Please enlighten us... have you owned and towed both systems? Seems like that's the only way you could have a meaningful opinion.

Just curious.

Happy Camping

No I haven't gone through the setup yet. Plan to this week, I trusted the dealer because he has always done good work in the past but I was obviously wrong this time.

As far as the difference between the e2 and the equalizer from what I have read the e2 only offers sway control from the friction created at the L-brackets or two point sway control. The equalizer has the friction control from the L-brackets but also has some sort of built in sway prevention at the hitch head for a total of 4 point sway control. I really don't understand how the hitch head works but it get great reviews. If I can't get satisfactory results after setting up my e2 I will go that route.

Best thing you can do is get the instructions out and redo the hitch setup. Then make any adjustments needed from there. Once set up then you can decide if you need tires, shocks, air bags, or a different hitch.

Best Anti Sway Hitch!

Never too late, consider changing to a Husky Brand Center Line model hitch. On my 1200 return trip from factory pick up, I did not even know I was towing a trailer aside from the truck's higher RPMs. No sway even as Semis passed!


It is more expensive than others, but the best out there bar none - IMHO and first hand experience. It has active anti sway vs reactive.
