I put one of those solid bars through the front on my camper one time, I think that was $400.00. That was the first time I did something stupid to a camper but not the last time

Thanks for all the great responses. I'm sold on the idea, the RV dealer where we're picking up our camper sells the Husky Centerline TS and the Equal-i-zer, but the Equal-i-zer is priced over our budget. That's why I'm hoping to get some input from you guys about the Husky TS.

Get the WDH. After you've towed a couple times, take the spring bars off and tow a few miles. You'll quickly realize the good sense you had when you got the WDH!

Ok, I'm sold on the Equal-i-zer. Am working with the dealer so they will install my hitch if I bring it to them. Thanks for all the input.

Do not trust the initial dealer setup. The TW could change significantly after you load up your stuff in the camper.

If the dealer sets up the WDH, have them err on the side of assuming TW will increase, after you load in your stuff. Then, when you actually get it loaded, use the manual to check the settings yourself. It's not difficult to make small adjustments to the amount of weight distribution. But you do need an hour or more, as the head needs to come off of the shank. As long as the dealer does the initial setup correctly, you should not need to adjust the L-brackets on the trailer. Those only need adjusting if they are way off.
