looking for a new WDH for my new flagstaff 831 RESS

Hello Everyone, We just purchased a new 831 RESS . I will have to buy a new WDH . What is the best WDH for this trailer? I will be towing it with a 2015 GMC Sierra HD 6.0L gas . Rated to tow 14500lb.

Welcome and congrats on the new Flagstaff! With a trailer gvwr of 9421 lbs, I would get a wdh with integrated sway control. Equal-i-zer 4 point sway control is very popular. Reese dual cam or reese strait line are also very good. The reese dual cam can be a bit more difficult to dial in but is a good hitch. I would get 1200 lb bars for these hitches. These are the best bang for the buck. If you want to spend big $$ then look at pro-pride or Hensley arrow. They are top of the line. Do not get friction sway control for that size trailer.

You will not be disappointed if you purchase a Hensley hitch. Research it and call the factory. Also, a reconditioned unit is considerably less expensive and comes with the same lifetime guarantee.
Travel safe

X2 on the Equalizer 4. It works. It's simple. It's affordable. The dealer wouldn't go any lower on our (used) TT price, but they included the E4 WDH & some other stuff for "free"... Our TT is 8,250 ready-to-camp w/tongue weight close to 1200 & I feel no sway even in high winds, semis passing, etc. even on our last trip to the Smoky Mts.

The pricier WDHs are to fix problems associated with underrated TVs. Your TV is a good match for this size TT. Flagstaff 831 RESS appears to have a nice roomy floor plan for the weight. Enjoy!

The dealer sells the Reese dual cam and he also

Is there any good web sites to price out the Reese and the Equal-i-zer 4 point sway control ? Sometimes it just comes down to price.

Booniey,
I'll sell you a 10,000 lb equalizer 4 point sway control for $200 plus shipping. We used ours 2 seasons and now have a 5th wheel and not needed. NEVER had a sway issue when using one of these.

Blue Ox For Sale

I have a Blue Ox Swaypro hitch for sale. It was purchased last summer and was used for one major trip to the western US. This hitch is noiseless, easy to hitch up and eliminates sway. Another great choice is the Equalizer. You can't go wrong with either. I actually have both so one has to go and I've decided to keep the Equalizer. Please let me know if you're interested in the Blue Ox. It has 15000 lb bars.
