I switched to the Andersen 'No-Sway' Weight Distribution Hitch a couple of years ago. It is easy to install. Pulls smooth and quiet with no noticeable sway. It is so much better than my old one. I pull a 30' travel trailer with a Jeep Grand Cherokee and I can barely tell it is back there. It may be a bit more expensive, but definitely worth in my opinion.

With enough truck to properly haul your TT around, particularly at highway speeds, any of the WD hitches with integrated sway control should suffice. Those with less than ideal towing combos, whether it is due to not enough truck or poorly designed trailers, usually resort to Hensley or Propride hitches to achieve a sense of towing comfort while underway.

On the other hand, just because you have more than enough truck does not indicate you can forego a WD/SC hitch altogether, seen too many 350/3500 trucks crawling along the highway and still see their 30' TTs excessively swaying although they are towing well below posted speed limit. Properly set-up, TTs can be towed without noticeable sway, even when passing semi-trucks.


Yep. If a person needs a super hitch to tow with. they have more problems than sway control can fix


I agree that a “super hitch” is not a bandaid to fix a poor setup but for some of us its not a matter of “need” but more of a want. If you’ve ever tried one you will want it even if you don’t need it.

This is always fun to read the posts on W.D. Hitches. Gets to be like the battle between the Cummins owners and the rest of us mis-guided individuals. I've towed my whole life with a round bar and a friction sway control and works great. Nope, don't tow a 30ft trailer............but I have and it still works great. Most of the deal here is making sure whatever hitch you decide on is sized right and set up right. We owned an RV shop in Central California and the only hitches we installed were Eas-Lift round bar with either a hydraulic sway control or a friction sway control. Never heard a single issue of sway or bad ride. Point being, the premium ones are great, the Blue Ox, Equalizer and Eas-Lift sway integrated are great too, but NOTHING works right if it isn't sized or installed right.
