I`de go with the Reese Straight Line. it goes one step farther and centers the TT behind the truck, where the EQ just keeps it where it is, kind of like a glorified friction sway bar. don`t get me wrong, the EQ is OK but I think the Dual Cam (Straightline) is much better at controlling sway!

While the Reese may have a selling point that it stays in a detent position, impeding sway, the fact is that it is which is no different than a friction producing device. The disadvantage of the reese, is that because it is resistant to "give", it puts unnecessary strain on the trailer frame, and the rear end of the TV. Also causing excessive push to the TV which can make the TV lose control, especially when cornering. There are no proven studies that say one hitch prevents sway any more than any other anti sway device. However, when you look at the physics, the ease of installation and hookup, you will go with the equalizer.

Hookup of the Dual Cam is just as easy as an EQ. and if the EQ works just as good as a DC it puts the same strain on the trailer frame and receiver as the DC. and the stresses on the trailer frame are no different than what the weight dist. puts on it.

DC is better in design! and thats the end of this argument!

I am sorry you didn't pass physics in school. As to just as easy to hook up....LOL! I'll be on my 2nd beer watching you finish!

My buddy has the EQ and were both done within seconds of each other. we checked to see one day when we were out just because of the faster to hitch up argument.

Physics are never a problem!

Yeah, he passed physics!

That's why he didn't buy a reese.
