I had an Equal-I-zer on my Rockwood. It was good for weight transfer, ease of hookup and sway control, but it was noisy and the tongue brackets would creep. Progress Mfg. did not respond to my email about the brackets moving so I had them welded on. I now have an Andersen but have not towed enough with it to fairly evaluate it. If the Andersen does not work out I would consider another Equal-I-zer.

5er that's cheating. Maybe in two years I will look at upgrading, myself. We are talking about it now DW will win I see it coming. It's the only time I can correctly predict the future.

X2. It's now on my second RV. It is, however, the only one I've ever had so I can't do a valid comparison. I feel I am in good company with someone who ran a cow painted modified.

We have the Centerline TS. Our first WDH, so not much to compare it to, but it works well for us. Relatively quiet and yes, you can back up with attached. Somewhat heavy, but I (female) can take it off and put it on if need be.

Doesn't sound like anyone has had a bad experience with the centerline ts. I think for the price it's worth a shot. If cost was no option of course everyone would buy the best WDH money could buy. Glad there are others out there with the same setup that have commented.

+1 They also win Motorhome Magazine's Reader's Choice Award most years. Unlike some of the others, no need to d/c something to back up. I also bought the Sway Bracket Jacket that is designed to quiet the ride, but haven't installed them because I've never had any noise from the unit.

I am picking up a 2016 Heritage Glen 272RL later this month. The dealer has two WD/AS hitches he sell, Blue Ox Pro series, or a Reese. The Blue Ox is the more expensive of the two, and $700 installed. I did some research on the Blue Ox. Appears to be very easy to install and adjust from the videos I viewed. Dealer says he sell about 10 Blue Oxs for every 1 Reese, the Blue Ox is powder coated, and he believes safer of the two to operate.
