WD Hitch

Take a look at ProPride. Trailer Sway Elimination | Sway Control | Truck RV Trailer Hitch Accessories | ProPride, Inc. I have had the 3P hitch on two travel trailers, one 25' and now a 35'. Wildwood 29FKBS. The 3P Hitch is the absolute best hitch on the market! Virtually eliminates sway. It's expensive, but worth every cent for the peace of mind you get. Check out what other's say on this forum and do a google search as well.

I'm really happy with my Equalizer 4PT setup, easy to setup and works well too. I found the best price online at RVWholesalers parts department and it was at my door in two days.

The Anderson has never been proven to replace all of the lost weight back to the front axle of the TV........at least that I know on this forum. If someone had a lighter trailer with a big TV, then the Anderson would probably be great. But it might not be the best option for a heavy trailer (with related heavy tongue weight) and an SUV.

I agree it will not do what it needs to for a TV that's to small to begin with .
you can't tow a 1000tw tt with a f150 and expect great results . those that try to make up the difference with a wd for their small tv are not going about it right . how ever my 2500hd can handle the weight , and a wd will just make it better , not compensating for the lack of a good TV in the first place . All the user reviews i've read on the andersen that have Good TV for the tt they are hauling love the hitch . of reviews i've read where people had problems either did not understand the andersen , have to small of a TV , or haven't even used it and can't grasp the concept of how it works . i've read where someone took a hammer to the lower plate because it was not straight with the hitch , when andersen says not to do that and how to straighten it , the Andersen has a tapered ball that goes through the mount , when pressure is applied to the lower triangle plate it does force the ball fwd and fits the ball squarely up into the coupler .

the friction material acts as the anti sway , you should not be able to move the ball by hand and the more force on the ball the tighter ie more friction created to handle the anti sway , and bounce . two of the biggest problems when towing , the weight distributions to a TV that is sized correctly to the TT the andersen seems to compensate just fine .
IMHO

I totally agree. ProPride is the way to go.

For me it was the safety for my family that sold me on ProPride. Priceless

I have the Andersen for my setup as well and it's worked wonderfully for us. But I'm new to towing and haven't tried anything else.
