Weight Distribution Hitch 23IKSS??

Hello - I just purchased a new 2016 23IKSS and was wondering if you folks have any recommendations on a WDH. I have a 2007 Toyota Tundra. This is our first TT, we have been camping in a highwall pop up.

I'm in the same boat as you. I have a 2010 Tundra and just traded in a Rockwood HW277 for a Roo 23 IKSS. I use a 4 point equalizer and like it so far.

Equal-I-zer is a very popular brand here and on other sites. Personally I use the Andersen WDH and love it. Very easy to install, hook up and disconnect from. It's only around 60lbs to boot too.

I use the Equal I Zer for the last two campers. It's heavy so I leave it attached to my truck, but it works very well. My shins have been sacrificed many times, when the hitch is attached!

We just bought a 23WS and after looking and searching online, we went with Blue Ox SwayPro.......,I think we'll be happy with it.

4pt Equal-i-zer for pulling our 23SS for the past 10 years, with zero issues.

Reese Straight Line since 2008. No issues and no sway. It's all I ever used so I can't offer comparisons. It was simply the set-up the dealer added on my first RV. The hitch and the bars are heavy; I can tell you that much.

Thanks for the feedback. Did you go with the 10K system? I am thinking that would be good with the 658 pound TW, unloaded, and give me some extra for stuff in the truck itself. I did see an 8K unit from fastway that is rated up to 800lbs for TW. From what I was reading if I go too high the ride will be very rigid. Looks like I can expect to spend between 500-600 on the hitch, the 8K unit is 300.
