Buying WDH From eTrailer

Hey everyone

Looking to upgrade from my Eaz-Lift 48053 1,000 lbs system with a single sway control to a better system.

Equal-i-zer WDH w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW

or

Equal-i-zer WDH w/ 4-Point Sway Control - 10,000 lbs GTW, 1,000 lbs TW

Seems like eTrailers prices fluctuate throughout the week (seems strange but could be based on supply). But I haven't purchased from them before, but I people speak highly of them.

I was curious if they typically run any sales before the start of camping season?

Thanks

Not sure about the sale pricing.

I bought my hitch from them. I had lots of help from them in advance. I had issues with the shipper causing some damage to the hitch body sheering off grease zirks (blueox). Etrailer was quick to try and address the issue but ended up having me deal with the manufacturer because of the damage. I recieved everything fine in a timely manner with RMA labels for the return and I was very happy with their service. Etrailer did follow up to make sure everything worked out ok.

I also bought some reading lights from them that were backordered. You may want to make sure they are in stock because they don't always tell you if they are backordered and you end up just waiting. I was in no hurry for the lights so I did not push but it took 3-4wks to ship them. I did receive them and all was well without any additional follow up.

I went with the heavier hitch setup and very glad I did but it depends on your tongue weight.

Happy camping and good luck!

Shop around, but etrailer is fantastic with customer service in my past.

I've had good luck with them over the years. I'm using a Curt Tru Trac w/ 1000 lb bars now. Four point sway, does decent pulling nearly 33 feet. A little cheaper than equilizer when I bought it. All kinds of options when talking hitches...which is why I like Etrailer. They've got video reviews on almost every product. That, and if you have a question they don't have the answer to, they'll go open a box and measure something to find out.

Shouldn't you know which of these 2 you need? What is the GTW and TW of your current trailer?

Based on what Bikendan said, if the difference in the two options is $27, I'd just go with the larger one
