I can't compare it to anything but I've towed several hundred miles with mine. It clonks a lot a low speed on turns...anyone know if that means I cranked it up too much? It's pretty tough to both engage and disengage the arms. I'm in shape so it's not a personal strength issue

Use the tongue jack to raise the truck and trailer before trying engage and disengage the arms

Thanks Jay. I was already doing that (would be impossible to engage without doing it) but was more surprised at the noise I was getting when most folks say it's quiet

Dealer was going to "throw in" an old chain style hitch by Husky.
I got him to order me a Centerline TS.
After the first 200 miles, I'm happy with it. No noise so far.

I have the same issue. Took me forever to get this dialed in to correct sway. Dealer install was horrible white knuckle ride. I think I have it now but I had to use 6 washers and raise the trailer brackets. Now takes a lot of effort to get the bars on and off (even after jacking all the way up), but it does control the sway. And it makes a lot of noise. I also noticed a lot of wear on the bars on the top where it meets the trunion. Am I over-stressing this hitch?

Husky Center Line towing system?

I have the centreline Ts and I found that the bars were getting harder and harder to move when I was hooking up. I took the unit apart and found that the paint had come off and was causing the part the bars fit into to jam up. I cleaned up the paint and put it back together and now it works like when I first got it. I am not 100% happy with this hitch, like was said I am finding a lot of ware on the L brackets, I had a fastway E2 on my previous trailer and it did not ware this fast. I am also seeing the chrome is coming off the ball, is any one else seeing this?

After a 4000 mile trip I can say it works well and controls sway. I can tell you to keep tinkering with both the hitch angle and the L brackets till you get it dialed in. You want just enough tension to transfer some weight and control sway, but not so much that the bars are hard to connect and disconnect. I do see some wear on top of the ball as well, and it does creak and moan a lot more now. But I don't hear it on the highway, just at low speed when turning.

Thanks. Mind if I ask what your setup is like? How many washers and how high are the L-brackets? My trailer is slightly shorter than yours though.

I have 1k miles on my husky setup and I think it works well. I do believe it could be tweaked. Maybe when it get a bit more brave. It is noisy and the torsion bars due wear but it think that might be by design. I will post pics next time it's hooked up.
