jlgail, I completely understand. With my first trailer I just got whatever was cheapest. The trailer was small enough that it seemed OK, but it really wasn't good in the wind.
Scott, brakeman, I just took delivery of the equalizer today and it looks quite nice. However, the "spring bars" look huge (I have the 1000/10000 model). These are just big, solid square bars of steel. I expected soemthing tapered or flat or something closer to my older bars. I just don't see how these things will have any "spring" to them with a 600-700lb hitch weight.
Do you guys notice the hitch being too "solid" and effectively locking your trailer tongue into place on the truck? What happens when you go up or down a steep driveway where the truck goes up with the trailer is still aiming down? I'm just a bit concerned that these are too thick somehow even though their calculator kept saying I needed this model. But maybe those big bars are springier than they look.
