x2 on bikendans recommendation of the 4 way equal-i-zer hitch set up. had the same set up on my old keystone copper canyon 31 ft trailer. set it up correctly the first time, and no more adjusting.

I'm with Dan...something like a E2 with sway control as the camper isn't that heavy or long. It's an easy install in the driveway in a couple of hours.

I have the Reese dual cam for my 35 foot lacrosse 318. Absolutely love it.

I personally wouldn't waist the money. That trailer isn't as heavy as a 21' bass boat and they are pulled everyday with smaller trucks. Yes it will change the way the truck will drive a little but so will putting a load in the back of a truck.

a high-profile TT will behave way differently, pulling through the air and from crosswinds, than a low-profile, aerodynamic boat will!!!!

that's like saying a breadbox will not be affected by air and wind, anymore than a bullet would.

i'm very happy with my 4 way Equal-i-zer. no drilling, no cheap friction bar and once mine was setup, never had to adjust it.

Not sure why people seem to forget the Blue Ox when discussing WD hitches with built in sway control as it is the most silent of the bunch and I would say easiest to hook up now that they went to the rotary snap up brackets.

I pull my 09 Rockwood Roo 23SS behind my 2500HD with just a ball. Don't think I will set up a WDH for this truck. But I will put the dual cam I saved from the travel trailer on it for when we pull with the wife's 5.7 Grand Cherokee.

We're talking about a 19' trailer that weighs half as much as the truck pulling it.......come on. People get a little carried away on these forums.

Ok went ahead and ordered the E2 Trunnion hitch, do you need to remove the bars when backing into tight sites? Thanks
