Weight Ditribution Hitch OR NOT

I am trading in my 2010 28 ft grey wolf bunkhouse kitchen slide out for a 179 R-pod, how many of you R-pod users use a weight distribution hitch, I have a 5.8L big ram hemi, I am considering using the hitch I currently have that I used for my grey wolf, I have plenty of power, but from your experience from towing how was the ride for those who don't use a weight distribution hitch to those who do.

I use a WDH sway bar setup on my 181g with a Ford F150. A lot of our owners do end up going with a setup like what you already have and what I'm currently using. The Pod performs really well with that type of setup and it's a very smooth tow.

thanks, I figured that is what a lot of other R-poder's do.

We had a WDH from our Airstream, towed the pod a couple years on the factory hitch, no real issues, but decided to try the WDH, and have not towed without it since. Ride is much improved.

We tow a 177 with an Expedition.
