Bpenn. I have the Blue Ox Sway Pro for my 27 hfs I can't remember the exact rating but I believe it was at 12000. I do know the hitch set up is the same and the weight difference comes from the bars Towing with a 3/4 ton Chevy with the factory sway control Real nice set up and I can adjust the chains depending on how much I put in the garage.

Bpenn, mine is a Reese setup I think it is a 10,000 setup. Just like RFK said, I just set the chain links depending on if I was hauling ATV's or not........that was with my 24HFS I haven't been out loaded with the 27HFS. I really didn't notice any difference towing either TH, but having a diesel TV (2011 F250) makes a world of difference! I thought about getting a F150 EcoBoost with MaxTow about a year ago when fuel prices started climbing but I just could not get myself to do it. Once you have a diesel it's hard to go back!

I also use a sway control arm too, I don't feel I need it but a little bit more trailer security won't hurt anything!

When we got our first camper back in 2002 it was a used Scotty and this is what the dealership sold us and I really have never looked at any other setups or payed any attention to the weights (oops!) looks like I am still alright for now though! 12,000 weight rating!

That is the same set up I use. It worked fine once I added the friction anti sway bar.
