Have the Reese 16k and just got back from camping and the DW said out of the clear, "This sure does seem like the trailer tows much better than the tt did. No noise, no bouncing, banging or anything." I have to agree with her, it is a pleasure towing the 5er with the Reese Revolution Sidewinder and the Reese 16K non-slider.
Don't know what issues you had, but don't think either Reese or DrawTite are junk.
I do know that adding shocks eliminated the porpoising/dolphining completely. The trailer follows the contours of the road and does not exagerate or continue bouncing like it did without the shocks.
