anti sway weight distribution for 25ULD?

I plan to purchase a new 25ULA. I want to use an anti sway weight distribution hitch, but I don't know if it will interfere with the front cap. Has any one installed one of these on this model?

Check your trailer tongue and see if you got nothing on the tongue in the 28 to 30 inch range from the ball. If so you can use a equalizer 4 point sway hitch. They are a great hitch.

I hope you have a "real" truck as a tow vehicle. This model has the heaviest TW of all of the Work & Play bumper pulls and ours is the absolute heaviest TW with the Onan 5500 in the nose cap (TT's only receive the Onan 4000) ... the only one I have seen with this combination, but it was a special order. Yes, had to replace the OEM receiver that was only rated at 1,500# TW. This hauler requires 1,700# rated TW rated equipment.

... none of the Equalizer's have the TW capacity for the 25ULA.

Huh, I didn't think anything was heavier than our 30WLA. We use a blue ox swaypro WDH with our dodge 2500 diesel. Only problem over the last 3 years is a lost pin and I "replaced" it with a extra drill chuck and 100mph tape.

... yup. Advertised "standard" equipped 30WLA unloaded hitch weight ... 1,390#. Advertised "standard" equipped 25ULA unloaded hitch weight ... 1,594#.

I was surprised too when I started researching the 25ULA's and, equipped as ours is with the Onan 5500 in the nose cap, even heavier. Our hitch choices were a Blue Ox or a Reese Straight-Line ... the only ones reasonably priced with a 1,700# TW capacity. We went with the Reese and love it.
