I use the Equalizer and do experience some noise at slower speeds. Only really noticeable while driving through the camp on the way to the campsite as I like to roll down the window. Nothing excessive but it happens. I will say it is a joy to use and makes the tow more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

The Hensley although never having a recorded upset was closer to 3500 for what I wanted.
I don't plan on doing pilons on the highway with my trailer and between the sway control on my 2011 Ecoboost and the Reese dual cam weight dist system for 591.00 delivered to my door I think that at 55 to 60 miles an hour (cause I'm in no big rush to get where I'm going safely) the Hensley was a bit over priced.
But their owners seem to love them!

This was my set up.

I would like to bring one issue up and this is something you might want to think about.........Your reciever has two weight ratings, one rating is with out weight distribution and the other is with distribution. I called Reese about this years ago and the Engineer said that this was the first time anyone has ask this question, and the question was.....If I were to remove the spring bars on my hitch system and back the camper could this cause damage to the receiver and he said yes it could happen because now i would be on the low end of the weight rating of the receiver. It's one thing hooking up your hitch while parked but it is another thing towing or back up with out the spring bars....Just something to think about!

The above picture brings up another point. If your trailer hitch is mounted on the bottom of the tongue, the square bars pictured are the preferred method. However, if your hitch is on top of the frame, a round bar system offers better clearances. The bars pictured in Post 14 above are what I'm talking about.

Edited to add: looked up a picture of a Flagstaff, and it has the hitch mounted on the bottom of the frame. So the bars pictured above would be fine. Equalizer uses the same type bar set uo.

Excellent point. I did not know this when I got my Reese setup. My coupler is mounted to the top of the tongue, plus I have a 6" tongue frame. That caused the square spring bars to rub the yoke bolt during sharp turns. I now use a 1" raised ball to prevent the yoke bolt rub, the spring bars will still rub the yoke during sharp turns.
