yes, sagging is the first issue I want to get rid of, I have ordered air lift 1000, hopefully, after adding air bags, the sagging will be gone (or at least at acceptable level).

I am also thinking to add WDH as well, as recommended by so many people, I would like to add it so that I can have a little more peace of the mind down the road. yes, the minivan will still be overloaded, but at least the load is more evenly distributed to front and back. but after reading some spec on WDH, I realize that most of WDH's requires the bar to be mounted at 27"-30" from the coupler, while on my trailer, the perfect location is currently occupied by the two LP tanks, the tank support is welded to the frame, it doesn't seem a easy modification to relocate the tanks. the only open place is about 36" away from coupler. I am looking for any WDH which can be located between 36"-42" away from coupler. does anyone have any recommendation? thanks.

I do not know of any WDH that has a set point for the bars that far back. You might have to get one and drill through the frame to mount it.

When Nolan's installed the Equalizer E2 (600/6000) on our A122 (has a very short a-frame for a short overall length), the propane tanks had to be lifted an inch to fit the L-brackets. Even then, the brackets are only 26" from the coupler. Which was the reason Nolan's gave for upsizing from the E2 400/4000 model.

I'm not sure if the original LP tank tray supports were welded or not. I know the spacers to raise the tank tray are welded. Nolan's even repainted the affected areas after the welding. The whole job of installing and setting up the Equalizer took over an hour.

I think I got a bargain at $330 installed - they didn't want to lose the camper sale because my minivan wouldn't tow for squat without the WDH.

just our experiences

There are covers available to reduce the noise that I have never bothered with. The groan as I turn out of my driveway or campsite tells me all is working as designed. No noise above about 30MPH - and no sway,
Just a side note that I read on the Equalizer web site: Equalizer does not recommend the noise reducing bracket covers with the E2 since this is a 2 point sway control and those covers would reduce the effectiveness of that sway control. They are really meant for the E4 hitch which can handle that due its 4 point sway control design.

Take a pic or two of the propane tank area if you can and sent it over. My propane tank supports were sort of in the way. I was able to work around it. Like to Them quick Thanks.

Looking at the pictures you might have a hard time getting your WDH hooked up. I wonder if you could take it to a local welder and see it they might have a idea of how to mount the tank holder. Might be a easy solution to a difficult situation. They may be able to remove the holder and relocate it. You may lose a little room for storage on the rack but it may work. What's the worse they could say, no. If it were me that's what I would at least try just to give you options and cost. Good luck

Equal-i-zer's instructions say the L brackets have to be in the range of 27" to 32" from the center of the coupler. If you can't get them to fit I wonder if you can move the propane tank tray forward or back? I found this pic showing the platform for mounting the propane tray.

It's a popup so it's likely to raise and lower the roof.
