No Sway Weight Distribution Hitch

I want opinions on Andersen No Sway Weight Distribution hitch. I have one and I love it. I hear people talking about other brands like Hensley and Reese etc.. I have a mid size pickup and a 21 foot Coachmen travel trailer. Being new to weight distribution hitches (Jan 2018) I went through a few different types before finally to the one I have now. It may have been poor decisions along the way till now. The first was when I got my trailer in January 2018 and it was a friction bar. This was a nightmare in towing it home with nothing in the trailer. I then went to local RV repair shop and bought a Fastway E2 round bar sway weight distribution hitch. I thought it was a good decision until I was heading south on I-5 and in Oregon I had the white knuckle experience. So after changing the washer set up and hoping for the best I waited till I took the trailer in for some warranty work and the service manager says it wasn't sway control hitch. So I buy my third one Easy Lift one that uses both bars and friction bar. After I got it and looked to see how it worked I didn't like it. So after I got the trailer home for the winter I started to research on what type would work the best for me. My problem, physically I'm not, leaves me on what I could lift. There were a lot of hitches of all different designs. I watched Youtube to see how each one hooked up. I felt the Hensley took too long to hook up. I looked at the other brands some of which had bar issues. So I decided to take chance and I found out through trial error that the last one does the job for both keeping the trailer level and no sway issues.

From what I understand, the Andersen is the way to go if you want a lightweight hitch.

I have the Fastway E2 Trunnion hitch (Square bar) and really like it. It's a heavy pig though..

The service manager either lied to you or doesn't know what they're talking about. The E2 is a WDH with 2 points of INTEGRATED sway control. Not as much as its big brother, the 4pt Equal-i-zer though.
