We just went thru that whole thing ourselfs. We have/had an Harbor Frt. WDH and it has done fine, but we wanted to upgrade with our new TT, something with built in sway control. Was looking at the Blue Ox sway Pro, Reese Straight Line and the Equalizer. Yes !!! Price is a factor, but more than that i wanted to get away from having chains, so that let out the first 2, and although the equalizer has many pos. reviews, most all commented about the noise.
So we stumped onto the Husky TS WHD $399 from Amazon. it's a newer hitch by them, looks like a copy of the Equalizer, says quieter, and an all newer/better design,lifetime warrentee , and i liked the tongue rating at 800 to 1200 pounds, since ours is around 900.Max tow 12,000. The few people i could find had all pos. comments on it, so we bought one.
Just arrived a few days ago from Amazon, was worried about the weight and shipping it ups, but arrived great, fantastic packaging, even had plywood on top and bottom of the box and everything in it's own styrofoam compartment.
Have not install yet, but looking at the quality, this thing is a hoss, everything solid steel, no stamped parts/plates, all powder coated ( which some say will flake off ).
Since we have not used it yet, no input there. Hope this may help you !!
Next trip is not until the end of Oct. so, won't know till then !
