I don't see where any extra sway control coming from on the Blue Ox, other than any other standard WDH? I am thinking I would still use friction bars.

A stadard 14k WDH with two anti sway friction bars? You would want to loosen the friction bars before backing up. Also they make a lot of noise... I nick named mine Moana's.. Usually I leave then loose till I head out of the campground then sinch them up..

Blue ox claims to have built in friction anti-sway without additional friction bars.

They claim it has four friction points, although I don't get how it works.

And I ordered the curt class v hitch with 16000 lb gtw and 2400 two for my truck. That should suffice.

Interesing I saw where they say the anti friction is (where the bars go in) but they don't show how it works.. On my Friction bars I bet there 10" of movement or more...

I know exactly what you are saying. Equalizer says the same thing, but last time I checked metal on metal wasn't a great resistance.

I don't know how the blue ox friction works but the friction bars have a brake pad type material sandwhiced around the meatal bar..

I have the same hauler as 11243 and it a very heavy camper. I am towing with a 02 Silverado 2500HD D/A. Before I bought the toy hauler I replaced the stock hitch with a B&W 16,000lb tow rating and a 1600lb tongue weight with the Reece Dual Cam Sway Control. Works great and I have never had the hauler sway not one time. loaded and ready to go with both of our cruiser bikes in the back I am right at 12,000 lbs. The truck seems to handle it with no problems.

If you already have two friction bars, I don't think more sway control is the answer. It is too easy to load TH's too heavy behind the axles. I was having sway problems with my 30WR when I first got it, but they went away after I started loading more gear in the front bedroom and the bed of the truck, instead of just throwing everything in the garage. I only one friction bar.
