I've never experienced any sway with my current set up, but I am going to go up from 1000 lb bars to 1200 lb bars when I buy the new WDH.

I was able to find your original post, Mike. Thanks for sharing the additional info!

And thank you, Frank, for posting the floorplans for comparison sake. The visual helps to make sense of it all.

Bottom line, at least for my cirsumstance, I feel comfortable now knowing the Equalizer with 4 point sway control will work for my trailer. Thanks all!

I'm glad you found my orgingal thread. I posted last night at work and was not for sure on how to insert lnks.

I've been told on other forum's that I probably should go with the 1200 pound bars because of all the weight that is going to on the hitch. The 2010 ads claimed that the V Lite or Windjammer with the kitchen in the front had a 950 pound tongue weight instead of the now claimed 750 pound weight. Most people have come closer to a 1100 pound tongue weight.

Our 3006W finally arrived and we picked it up yesterday. We went with the 1200lb Equalizer 4-point system. This fit perfect with no mods being made to the trailer or truck. The tongue on this unit is 958, which is why I went to the 1200 rated hitch.
I will try and post pics once we get to our destination.
