We have the Equalizer it works very well with sway and distribution. but it is a little noisy on the tighter corners.

One thing I've wondered about is the brackets on the trailer frame tend to move around a little. The bolts are not loose but I think the torque on the bars is pretty great so they tend to slide and twist a bit. I was thinking about putting a tack weld on them to hold them in place. Has anyone else had the same issue?

So easy to take on off and store - barely bigger than a normal slide in hitch---

The Old Quadrasteer is really a 6.0 3/4 Ton truck! It is no longer made,saying it is a 1/2 Ton is quite confusing to people trying to decide on a TV! Youroo!!

Just to further muddy the waters...

I've got a Fastway e2 setup - WDH & friction sway control; and it works very well.

Very similar to the Equalizer... Quick to take on and off, although it is a little on the heavy side.

Yes. I drilled a hole through the bracket and tongue member and put a bolt through. You have to watch for wiring inside and outside the frame.

If you never want to worry again get a Hensley. I know it's$2000 installed but it's trouble free.

PH, you are the expert. If you were referring to the comment I made... I have read on the forum that the mounting slips and then the tension changed... dunno really, just read it on the forum.

No just commenting on other posts that the only argument I've heard against the Anderson is it can't transfer enough weigh to front axle --In my use I can definitely see and feel weight transferred to front axles that's all

Great WDS system

WW going coastal this weekend 😄
