I've had my Andersen for a couple of years and it has been great. I now have a Wildcat 5er being delivered to me mid-March. I just bought the Andersen Ultimate Fifth Aluminum for it and will be selling my Andersen WDH then. My orig tow vehicle had a 600# hitch weight limit and the Andersen WDH was the lightest weighing best performing WDH I could find. Highly recommend for your case.

Did you get the 4 point of the 2 point? Dealers in my area really like to sell the 2 point because many people don't know the difference. Most dealers around here try to charge $600-$750 for a 4 point, but you can get them online much cheaper.

Equalizer hitch

What is the difference between the 2 point and the 4 point hitch?

What I call the 2 point is actually a Fastway product called the E2. Many people use the term "Equalizer hitch" when talking about any weight distribution hitch, probably because they think of it as "equalizing" the weight on the front and rear axle of the TV. But, an Equalizer hitch is actually a certain brand that controls sway by creating friction points on each sway bar at the head and at the mount on the trailer, thus 4 points of friction. The E2 uses friction only at the 2 mounts on the trailer- no friction at the head.

Real Equalizer:

Equal-i-zer® Hitch - The “American Original” with 4-Point Sway Control™ and Weight Distribution

Fastway E2:

Standard basic chain type WDH that is NOT an Equalizer:

Hitch

Okay, I know what you are talking about. I previously had a equalizer bar with sway bars but when I purchased my new Windjammer, I had to get the new 4 point Equalizer HITCH.

There are lots of considerations when buying; tow vehicle, budget, trailer length.

A shorter tow vehcile such as an SUV coupled to a long trailer will require sway control.

FWIW - I bought the Fastway E2 Trunnion and it works well for my set up.

I like the Equalizer WDH. It provides both WDH and sway control.

Equilizer 4pt I have. It was 444 online somewhere and etrailer matches prices and beats it by 5% I think is what I got it for. Also you can back up without taking it off.
