Pulling doubles....

We're going to be pulling a boat behind our fifth wheel and I'm wondering if an equalizer hitch with sway control is necessary, or is it ok to use a hitch with just sway control.
Thanks

Be sure to check what state allows that. Illegal in Florida and many other states. The entire east coast from Florida to Maine it is not allowed. Also, check your manufacturers' warranty.

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant

welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. You didn't say what rig you have or how big a boat you will be pulling. I have never seen anyone use a WDH with a double pull I don't see what advantage there would be. Use a regular hitch with sway control and be sure to load the boat correctly to keep the tongue weight where it should be.

I've doubled towed from Florida to Ohio went by state troopers and have never been stopped. Law enforcement have better things to do than pick on campers.

They probably never looked up from their donut. In Connecticut, they'd stop you in a heartbeat.
