Weight control system
Looking at a super v lite and trying to determine the best weight control/sway system. I would like comments on the following: Reese SC system, Blue Ox Sway Pro or Equalizer. Trailer weight is 6010 lbs and hitch weight 780. Would 1200 weight bars be overkill or will the 1000 bars work? Thanks.............

Our old tt Was 5700 lbs dry and 7300 lbs loaded. We had a dry tongue weight of 800 lbs and a loaded tongue weight of close to 1000 lbs. We had 1200 lb bars on our reese dual cam. It is so good hitch but hard to adjust. Both reese and equal-i-zer are very good hitches. I hear equal-i-zer is easier to adjust/set up.

I have the Blue Ox and am very happy with it. I originally set it up with 750# bars for my 21FBRS with 650+ on the tongue; but found them too heavy and went to the 550# bars. The lighter bars give me a lot more ground clearance and feel a lot better in real world towing. No noise; nothing to disconnect when backing; great system!
