I was using a 2001 Tahoe with 150,000 miles until last week. It did the job but struggled on hills and the dealer didn't adjust the Equalizer hitch properly so there was some sway. Just got an 08 FORD F250 6.4L Diesel and it doesn't even know the trailer is back there.

We use a 06 F350 diesel. It's overkill but it feels safe! Get a good weight distribution hitch too. Makes all the difference even with my large truck!

Yes, have an Equalizer E2 Weight Distribution hitch which works well.

Firedaniel, have you tried steady fast yet? We have the same issue with a family of 5 and our choc lab, it rocks a lot at night.

Installed last weekend makes a huge difference in the driveway. We are going on vacation the first of June for 10 nights. Should have a good report then.

How difficult was installation and how much did it cost?

Pretty straight forward. I didn't like the self tap bolts so I used grade 6 where it attached to the frame. Drilling the frame was the hardest part. Cost was $300 if I remember. Check out their website.

Good luck

Thanks, did you need a special drill or just a special bit?

No just a regular drill. It actually comes with a bit. But you will probably want one alittle smaller. It's pretty easy.

Very helpful info, thanks. I think I'm gonna get one because ours moves a lot with the three kids in the bunks. I've got girls but their not petite!
