Looking for suggestions on anti- sway bars for the Vibe

Hi all- looking for any suggestions on the brand of anti-sway bar will work best with our Vibe 268RKS. Got the TT on order- didn't purchase the anti away bars yet. Any feedback would be great!

Thank you!!

Cyndi

I would suggest a WDH (weight distribution hitch) because it does two things...prevents sway and helps keep too much weight from pushing down on the hitch ball. Even with our strong winds in Colorado I've never felt the trailer swaying around very much.

Our dealer suggested the Equal-i-zer hitches on both RVs we purchased from him and we really like it. (But if you've never set one up you may want to have your dealer do it for you.) 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!)

Thank you ColoradoRick!! My husband and I really appreciate the info! Went to an RV show this past weekend, looking for accessories, etc.and talked to a guy selling Henderson anti-sway bars- but those were about 2500.00! I knew there had to be another option!

Thanks again!!

I highly recommend the Equal-i-zer 4 point. I negotiated with the dealer to throw one in when I purchased my 286rks. Makes towing the Vibe a pleasure with my F150, very stable!

Equalizer brand

I cannot believe how much better that brand is than all the other famous brands I have used in my 51 years of towing!
Get it your troubles will be over.

I also have the 4 point Equal-i-zer wdh works really great. Ya I looked at the Henderson anti-sway bars price did it in. I tow a 35 ft tt so I'm happy with my system. Later RJD

Bought a 1000/10,000 Equalizer 4 point last year to use twice. Would never consider anything else although there are cheaper hitches. Good reminder ~~ it needs to be put on Craigslist on a warm day.

I think, maybe, you meant to say Hensley.
