If you go with the Hensley or ProPride you will not have any sway to control, I know everyone says they are expensive but they are the best.

I don't think it has ever been proven on this forum that the Anderson can get all of the lost weight back on the tow vehicle front axle, especially with trailers that have heavy tongue weights. Since the OP is pulling with a 3/4 ton truck, a bit heavy on the rear axle is probably not a bad thing, but I would still be concerned with the lost weight on the front axle.

I have a very similar setup, 2014 Ram 2500 and a Surveyor SC321BHTS and use the equal-i-zer. Very very happy with it

Got a $100 off trade up from Blue Ox at Goshen two years ago. Got tired of the noise from the Eqalizer system With sway bar I had. No noise, no sway now. Blue Ox tech set mine up, but walked me through it as he installed it. Love the system. Have a 34 foot TT and 2500 Chey HD.

I use the Reese sway control weight distribution hitch w/ a single additional anti sway bar. You do have to disconnect the anti sway bar when backing up. It's the best system I've had.

I use a Hensley Arrow and have done for years. Yes, it is expensive but it works! Many years back, shortly after purchasing the unit and before they built the new bridge, we were traveling from Flagstaff, AZ to Las Vegas very early in the morning. Prior to crossing over the Hoover Dam we were stopped by Homeland Security for inspection. First question I was asked was, "How the hell did you get here?". "What do you mean?" this crazy Canuk replied. "Well the road is closed" I was told. "Didn't see any signs" I said. "Why is it closed?" I asked. "Severe cross winds topping 80mph" I was told. Kicking my nice new orange Hensley Arrow, I said, "Well, that bugger was a good investment then!" A year later, west bound and crossing the Mojave Desert in wicked winds. Semi's were drifting all over the road and there was even one on it's side in the median. Even though we could feel the wind, we never swayed and always felt I had complete control. Recently installed it on our Flagstaff V-Lite and expect to get the same performance but we do require an exchange 4" off-set hitch bar and different Frame Brackets. It is the best Sway eliminator I have ever used!

I have a Lacrosse 308res and use a Reese dual cam. It took a little fussing with it to get it fine tuned but then you are set. Adjustments don't change. I'm happy!

Had a 29 ft surveyor trailer and used the equalizer 4 point sway and it worked awesome. Very little sway even in windy conditions. The style of truck u have can play a role also in trailer sway. I prefer to have a tow vehichle which has a higher weight rating

I currently have a LaCrosse 327RES and a F250 so the setup is very similar to your unit. I have a 14,000/1400 Equ-al-izer that I had on a different trailer with a heavier tongue weight. Overall I am happy with it but it did take a few different attempts to get it dialed in. I use their grease and lube mine every time and have the pads on the L brackets. There is very little noise but everything is heavy to lug around.

My concern with the Andersen ( I have never actually seen) is I have read that they donít do well with the longer-heavier trailers.

If was starting out now I would look very hard at the Blue Ox that has been mentioned.

Has anyone else heard this about the Andersen Hitch? I was getting ready to pull the trigger on a new hitch setup but now 2nd guessing. Right now it down to the Reese Dual Cam and the Andersen. Any thoughts on those with a 37 foot 10,000 lbs trailer?
