I am pulling the same camper with a F250 7.3L desiel. Tried taking it home with just the reese hitch with one sway bar attached and liked to have lost it due to sway. Had a Equalizer 4 pt WDH installed and have towed the camper several times on the interstate without any problems. Definitely recommend the Equalizer....

Love the camper by the way. Still trying to figure how to Stabilize it better when set up but that's another issue.....

I don't think you can go wrong with either an Equal-i-zer or a Reese Dual Cam. Both have their fans.

If your current WDH could accomodate a Dual-Cam add-on kit, I'd go that way to save money.

Otherwise, if you are getting an all-new kit, it really seems like the Equal-i-zer is easier to engage each time, and has a large following.

I'm just in the process of setting up my Equal-i-zer, and probably need a longer shank than stock. See my recent thread in "Towing".

I like the Equalizer. If you get one, buy the one that one that is at least 1200 lbs if not higher. That way you don't have to buy a new one if you upgrade to an even heavier camper.
