Ahh, close but not close enough. I have a 5 year old Curt WD am willing to let go for $75 includes 2 5/16th 6 mo ball. But New Haven-ish would be as low as I go to part with it. WD itself did great with my last HTT which was 2 ft shorter yanking with my suv. Once I pushed 25 ft. It got a bit scary without sway.

I appreciate your offer.

You really should consider the Husky hitch. It is inexpensive and does a great job of weight distribution and sway control. It is also very quiet.

So maybe they should've sold me a different hitch. The Equalizer keeps the trailer totally in line, though. If I ever go bigger in a trailer, I will keep the hitch, after all I have gone through breaking it in!

I believe my hitch is a Curt, but very similar to the Pro Series that was referred to. My Bars are sometimes difficult to disconnect from the hitch on the truck. We usually just pull the pin and take the entire assembly off the truck and lay it by the trailer. I suppose it could possibly be stolen that way, but then there is no huge hitch sticking out from the truck to bang your knee on. My wife and I don't have much problem picking it back up and stabbing it into the receiver. Maybe in a few years we will feel differently about this.

I have a Curt and used it for 5 years on my last HTT. It is just wd and no sway (you can add the Reese bar or bars to it). Never had any issue pulling that 22' trailer. The IKSS swayed since day 1 pulling it home. So bad it threw the sway light on the dash and cut engine power. Thought it was the setup the dealer had done (also the completely full tanks of water they left me with after the PDI). Played around a bit with it for our only trip with the camper last fall. Still swayed like crazy. Did some more configuration changes in the spring. Helped a little but not enough. So I bought a Blue Ox. 3 long trips since. No more sway.
