Another Equalizer 1000/10000 here pulling a 233S. Don't regret this at all & I hardly know the Roo is back there except for the drag.

Both the Equal-I-zer and Reese Dual Cam are solid choices. IMHO you would like either one.

Be aware that each of those brands offer a lesser hitch that you should avoid. They aren't bad hitches, but they are not in the same league. I can't recall what the Reese one is called, but the Progress one is the E2. It has two points of sway control versus the Equal-I-zer at 4-points. The 4-point hitch is more expensive but I believe its more effective.

Thanks for all your help Triguy, I was aware of the E2 and it seemed like a lesser product, though it probably would be ok to use. With as much as I tow and boondock, I am going to go with a little higher quality, I was just perplexed on real world weights.

Everyone else, thanks for your input and suggestions, I am trying to do this right as its my first TT (graduating from a tent and a borrowed popup) and I want to get everything ready and have my homework done before I drive the 2000 miles to pick her up!

Tori guys weights are real world, mine are based off website numbers. I would go with the real world users over my calculations. IMO you would probably be fine with either.

towing a Roo 23SS with an 1000/10,000lbs. Equalizer and love it.
no chains to fool with and only have to set it up the one time.
the Dual Cam is a great and well-loved system but too many things to deal with, for me and you may have to drill into the A-frame.

the Equalizer just has the weight bars, hitch head and L-brackets. very simple and easy to use and no drilling needed.

RVW usually has the best price and has free shipping.

Thanks everyone, definitely going with a 1k/10k, most likely the Equalizer, unless I can get a screaming deal on the Reese. I am inexperienced with WDH so the easiest most seemless transition and hookup will be appreciated.

I will also do some studying on the centerline, which I ran across in other threads
