looking for advise on best place to buy and brand of weight distributing hitch. not looking to cheap out, but want good deal on a brand anyone has had good luck with. I liked the trunion style bars better with my racecar trailer, but whats best for a 27' travel trailer??

I use an Equal-i-zer and it does a good job. The best price I've found is Rvwholesalers. Be sure to get one with built in sway control. It makes your life much easier and also works better than friction bars. You need to know the TW of the RV you're going to use it on in order to get the right bars for it.

Equal-i-zer is a nice one, specially for the price. That's what we use to tow our 34ft trailer, and it does a great job at both weight distribution and sway control. It's also pretty easy to hook and unhook.

the top selling and most positive comments WDH's are the Equalizer and the Reese Dual-Cam.
i love my Equalizer and the price was way less than the Reese. but Reese has come out with an Equalizer-clone that's cheaper. forgot the name but haven't heard much feedback on it.

I use a Equal-i-zer with our FR Rockwood 8317SS. I would recommend this hitch set-up to anyone. I was skeptical at first since I grew up with the old style system (friction sway bar set-up) but was amazed by the difference. Bought mine from RVWholesalers with my trailer, shopped around but they had the best price.

I use the Reese WD and sway control system with 1,200 lbs spring bars on a 8314ss. Works nicely.

Dual Cam & Equalizer

I used the Reese Dual Cam on my last TT. A 30 foot RVision Trail-lite. I use the Equalizer with the heaviest bars they make on my 34 foot Sandpiper. I like the Equalizer performance a little better and that is with a much heavier and longer TT.
I also found that RVWholesalers had the best prices on the equalizer.
