Reese SC WDH Setup

Anyone out there tow with a Reese SC WDH hookup? I was able to get my saleman to upgrade to that for free over a standard Reese WDH. Any thoughts or comments on this hitch? Comments at eTrailer seem promising.

Reese SC Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion - 10,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW Reese Weight Distribution RP66151

The SC is similar to the Fastway E2 with just sway control points at the spring bars and hanger. Probably not as good as the Equal-i-zer 4 pt. that has both the spring bar and hanger friction, as well as a damper at the spring bars and hitch.

The unit in the link handles up to a 600 lb. tongue weight......make sure your trailer tongue is under that weight.

I have one of these Strait-Line Weight Distribution w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 10,000 lbs GTW, 600 lbs TW Reese Weight Distribution RP66072 and it's been fantastic.

The expedition is 'too short' in the WB department according to 'the chart' and formula everyone posts for a 28' trailer but I've towed over uneven pavement in construction zones in rushhour in the rain with concrete walls on both sides, been passed by many a trucker and never ever not once had a sway issue.

I can make tight off camber turns - forward or backwards without any issues (other than some groaning)

I had the standard before I up graded. I've researched quit a bit before I bought. I believe that hitch is a lot better than the standard.

I believe he said he ordered me the 800lb bars. I hope they aren't too stiff. We will see.

One of the reasons why I went with this hitch, besides they carry Reese products, is that it is expandable and changeable. I should be picking up the trailer in the coming weeks when my work schedule allows it.
