Is Equal-i-zer hitch Worth the $

Hey guys, I had my deal on a 27dbk go south. Now I got a new one going with a little local dealer for the same unit. Thinking about ditching the pro hitch set up that come with it and going with the Equal-i-zer. Is it worth the extra $. Also what model (set up would I need)? It 700 lbs hitch weight and 6500 trailer.

My trailer specs are about the same as yours. I love mine. No sway, even in strong cross winds, and can't even feel semis going by.

Itís a good one. Not the only one, but if you have the cash I would based on reputation.

That's what I use to pull my 2104S and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Just be prepared for the groaning and popping when backing up!

I got a good deal for one off Craigslist. The P O had bought a bigger trailer and needed the bigger hitch. Worth looking.

It is noisy in the turns but works.

The Equal-i-zer 4 point WDH is top notch and good value in my opinion. For a 6500# trailer, the 10k Equal-i-zer would be just fine. The best price I could find when I bought mine was at RVWholesalers.com.

It works on our TV/TT setup as I never have experienced any sway. It is the only one I have used so I can't say how it compares to others.

Agree that the 10000 lb equalizer will work well.
