Unfortunately, Youroo's not too far off. There's tons of opinions on this topic.

My own personal preference is "If you have a heart attack at the price, it's probably the better hitch."

We have a Rockwood 2703WS TT and 2008 Toyota Tundra 5.7L. I use an EZ Lift WDH with 1000lb leveler bars and a single EZ Lift anti-sway bar. I have absolutely no issues when towing. My previous TT was a Keystone Sprinter 25' and I had no towing problems with that rig either.

I can only relate my experience. I suspect that there are not many people out there that have experience with multiple systems to provide a good sample of opinions.

We have an Equalizer 4 Point Sway Controller that I use on my F150 Supercab to tow a 24' TT. You can look on ETrailer .com and they have a Video on how to set it up. It is rather expensive, but I saved around $200, by ordering it over the Internet. WAS shipped the next day, Only wish I could remember Whom I ordered it thru??

Without knowing your TV or all the parameters of the weights it is a little difficult to make a solid suggestion. Most will tell you Propride for top of the line units and equal-i-zer for midgrade-ish.

Research your weights of the TT and TV then do a search and find what others have been told for a similar set up. Did you buy the TT at a dealer lot? Did the dealer offer anything or tell you anything?

With something in the 600ish or less TW category, I'd seriously look into the Anderson, though. BTW, I purchased my Equalizer from RVWholesalers. I actually ordered one previously from another dealer to save like $20-best price I could find online. It was banged up, had paint missing from installing bolts and looked like someone had attempted to install it. Sent it back and went with RVW. Received it quickly and it was actually new.

I have the Camco Eaz-Lift Trekker. Works great on my W#indjammer. Comes in three different weights.

Just purchased a Rockwood Windjammer 3029W from Funtown RV in Cleburne,Tx. Anyone have any problems with this particular trailer. Got the equalizer hitch on it and had no problems towing it home.
