WDH for 23ikss

Just put down payment on 23ikss, now I need to get a wdh. I like the equalizer for 10k max trailer, but would love to get some experienced input. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Yup. Equalizer is without a doubt the way to go.

Yep. You've already got it figured out.

Another vote for the Equal-i-zer 4-point. Its all I've ever used on a trailer and no real reason to change for me.

offering a contrary opinion...

I dont care at all for "friction" type of sway. I have the Reese Dual Cam setup and love it.

...Well (technically) I believe that the Reese DC uses friction, too. This is a picture that John Barca over at rv.net put together a few years ago to explain how it works.

But, I agree with you 100% that the Reese DC is a really great hitch and much better than a basic WDH with one or two friction sway bars

yep, the Reese DC uses friction also.
but, with the Equalizer, you don't have drill any holes in the A-frame, which you do have to do with the Reese.

Aye... but I doubt I live long enough to wear out either the cam or the hitch bar.

Not saying its better or worse, mind you... Just saying that it is another option, and that some people have good experience with them. And I think I prefer having the hitch solidly bolted to the frame rather than merely clamped. Again. personal preference.

We just got the 233S and it was my first time pulling any type of TT. They installed the Reese Dual Cam and was really happy.
