New Hitch Needed

On out return trip home from camping over the weekend I had to tow in a heavy cross wind, had to drop my speed down to 55mph. I have been researching both the Reese straight line pro and the equal-i-zer. My current setup is the standard give away from the dealer. I have it set up to transfer just enough weight to keep the front end of the TV from raising. Anymore weight on the front end and the ride is harsh and I get a lot more sway. TV is a 02 dodge 2500 8800GVW CTD. I've read that the Reese dual cam needs pressure in order to function correctly, does the equal-i-zer need this also? Looking for ideas and opinions.

Not a lot of experience here, but a lot of people share Steve's view - the e-qual-izer is pretty much thought of as a great set-up.

I wouldn't call it the best, I think Hensley has that title....but i would call it the easiest to apply and priced affordably. Perhaps best value would be better stated?

I had the Reese Strait line on my Outback before getting the Fiver.

Once set-up, it was flawless. I have a 2006 Dodge 2500 and the Outback maxed out a 7000lbs, so there will be a way to set it up.

Forgot about the Hensley. It's great but usually behind an Escalade.
