Hey everyone. Noob to the site. The wife and I just purchased our first ever camp trailer. We opted for a 2013 Forest River Shockwave 21FSMX toyhauler. It should be in in a few (short?) weeks.
I've towed quite a bit in the past but this will be my first experience with a TT. I obviously want to do it right. I was wondering if anyone had any feedback on what WD/anti sway setups I should consider. Are the $500-$600 units really worth the extra penny over the $250-$400 units? (stupid question?...probably).
Through my searches it seems as though the cheaper units are simply...well....simpler (chains and friction pads vs spiffy bars and fancy cams) . Should I opt for the higher end units or will the lower priced units work just as good?
I'm still real green in this area so take it easy on me. These questions have stemmed from only short spurts of browsing sites like etrailer.com.
My truck is a 2004 F150 with 5.4L and 3.73 gears, a 9300 lb tow rating and 1400 lbs payload. And here's the trailer specs if this info helps with the input:
Also, what weight ratings would be recommended to have the proper setup for my trailer specs?
From what I've read I believe I will be getting a Prodigy P2 BC. Any input
on that aspect also welcome. Thanks guys!
P.S. Forgive me if a simple search would have answered all of my questions and cured cancer. Feel free to post links to useful threads if felt necessary.
