I have a SwayPro WDH with 1000lb spring bars which is what the SwayPro 1000 is and it works very well for me since I got it set correctly. I have no sway or suck when a truck passes me. It's the only WDH I've ever used so I can't compare it to others but I really like it.

One thing I found good was that when I bought a new trailer this year that was a couple 1000lbs heavier than my previous one, I didn't have to buy a new hitch all I had to do was upgrade the spring bars. I was able to adjust the height of the ball using the existing hitch receiver and ball mount. Hooking up is easy also, the spring bars are very easy to hook up by using the tongue jack on the trailer to raise the rear of the truck.

I also inflated my P series tires to max inflation.

I may be upgrading to LT tires as well.

hmmmm.... I have the same 268rks vibe.... I had the understanding that the spread axle would be better.. its worse?
