The best hitch Reese has is the Strait-line dual cam setuphttp://www.etrailer.com/Weight-Distr...e/RP66073.html
I have a Reese dual cam hitch that I use with my 2007 Chevy 1500 to pull a 24 ft TT comfortably. It's about as good as you can get for $600 or less, but it isn't as good as a Hensley or Propride. When passing a semi at 65 mph or driving with a 35 mph crosswind there is a very small perceptible tugging, or lateral sway, movement with the strait-line hitch. I have pulled the same trailer with the same truck and a conventional WD hitch and there is much more tugging/swaying - enough of a difference that I was willing to spend $540 on the strait-line hitch.
I have not personally used an Equalizer hitch but I hear good things about them.
I know the price of the Hensley and Propride is hard to swallow. I'm anticipating trading my TV and TT for a 32 ft TT and F350 TV and debating whether I should keep the strait-line hitch or pony up for the Propride.
