Just my 2 cents. I have the Andersen and love it.

2 more cents. I had a TT that weighed 6000#. I towed it with a RAM 2500 without sway bar and towed GREAT. The weight of the truck held it in the road with no sway at all.

I had a 4500 lb unit I hauled without sway bars on a k1500 , but I did have a wdh installed. Without wdh it was white knuckle driving as I did that once.

just as important as choosing the right hitch, is knowing how to use it. I've seen so many people hook and unhook the weight distribution bars with their bare hands. Might as well leave them at home if you aren't going to put tension on them as intended. Plenty of videos on YouTube that will show proper hookup procedure.

propride is the best. Guaranteed no sway and lifetime warrantee. little pricy and worth every penny. I pull a 30ft with Silverado 1500 and it pulls like a dream. No more white knuckle trips. Plus the hitch holds it value quite well. my 2 cents.

Agree with dave1971. Put some weight on WDH.

I have and Equlizer with sway control. Just finished a 3,000 mile trip and it worked great. Would highly recommend. Trailer is 36 feet long and towed well when passed and on windy days.

I am preparing to set up my Reese Dual-Cam and WD hitch. I have read the instructions several times to make sure I am familiar with everything. A couple questions, do I need to put the normal gear I haul in the bed of the truck (generator, fuel can, etc.) before I set up the WD hitch? What about the gear typically carried in the trailer, including fresh water?

I would try to get fairly close to my trip travel weight.
