Don't forget to get the lubercation it will help to cut down the friction noise.

hitch for 268rks

Cyndi, we just picked up our 268rks on Monday at CW of Tampa and got a Husky hitch that uses the torsion bars as sway bars.I think that is how they explained it. They put it on and adjusted it for us We are full timing since Feb 1. Traded in 264 Sur veyor. Very happy so far! Hope your experience is as good!

Robert and Ann- you are full timers? That is great- my husband and I will be full-timers starting sometime in November this year! Pretty excited. Thanks for the info on the Husky hitch! Happy, safe travels!

The Husky Center Line TS is a wonderful Weight Distribution Hitch with built-in sway control. I have one now and I like it much more than my previous Reese Straight Line.

We purchased and installed a 10,000 lb Equalizer 4 point hitch on our Vibe 268 RKS as well. Works awesome!

When not camping, I store the entire hitch inside the camper on a few pieces of carpet so I don't forget to bring it when I go pick up the camper from the lot. (Which I may have done...a few times!)

Best setup IMHO. Convinced a neighbor to trade his old friction sway system for the Eual-i-zer hitch. He has thanked me many times.

Look at Etrailer.com if you are looking for a hitch, etc. Great Customer Service...talk to someone and tell them what you have.

We bought a Blue Ox set up from our dealer this past year and we pulled our trailer from Michigan to the Northwest Territories and back and it never ever swayed a bit and we were in some high winds in the prairies and on lots of poor quality roads at times in the territories. Blue Ox was a bit more money than I liked but I am really glad I have it now.
