Question WDH's, what brands are best?

Has anyone used Drawtite or Husky?
The dealer uses Husky, the local hitch place uses Drawtite.
We will be towing a 4700 GVWR trailer.
Idk what to go with....this is all new to me, and is confusing as all h#%l!!!

I like my Equalizer! Equal-i-zer® Hitch - The “American Original” with 4-Point Sway Control™ and Weight Distribution

Most owners of a particular brand will swear by the brand they own, thus my vote for the Equalizer, as well. Love the ease of use with the Equalizer, though there are several good brands out there. We've never experienced even the first sign of sway towing our previous 6k lb, 22 ft Outback. We used the 10k hitch with 1000 lb bars, but upgraded to the 12k/1200 Equalizer for our new Windjammer.

the two most recommended WDHs, on all RV forums, are the Equal-i-zer and the Reese Dual-Cam.
there ones that are cheaper and ones that are more expensive but these two seem to offer the most for the price.
RVW has the best price, i've seen, on the Equal-i-zer. not sure who has the best price on the Reese.
i went with the Equal-i-zer since there's no drilling required and no chain links to mess with.

I don't think the Drawtite or Husky have integrated sway control.....that is very important.

I think Drawtite and Reese are the same stuff . . . . We like our Reese Dual Cam; never a hint of sway.

We also had the same set up as Kamp K when we owned a TT. Very easy hitch to use and the sway control did the job.

My dealer had the husky and so far that is what I have used and it has worked pretty well. My tt is about the same weight as yours and it works pretty good. I'm sure others are better but I have no complaints.

Yes, I think they are both owned by the same parent company.
