I use the Equil-i-zer hitch and really like it a lot. The moaning and popping sound just lets you know it's all still attached. That's normal. The friction reduction pads are suppose to help but I haven't invested in those yet.

Andersen weight distribution

Thanks to all for your replies. I just purchased the Andersen. Will see how it works out, but I would be remiss if I didn't mention the customer service. I was emailing back and forth with Jason for a week. He was awesome. I've never experienced such a great buying experience. I'll post back once I have it installed and see how well it works.

Equalizer

I did have the equalizer previously, it's heavy and cumbersome. Does it work? Yes, but it's hard to use. Just my opinion

I have never used any other, but yes, you are correct with all of the above. It is a lot of work to set up. Not sure how the others compare, but the Equal-I-Zer seems to add several steps into the hookup process.

I have the 2015 F150 3.5 ecoboost, with a larger trailer - we use the Sway Pro - it handled it great. Controlled the sway surperbly (i.e. - there was no sway). We do, however, get buffeted by the wind - but at least there is no trailer sway to go with it.

I want to thank everyone for their comments. I ordered a new Sway pro today. I will share my experiences with it down the road. Thanks again!

Pretty sure you'll be happy. The head weighs a ton, built like a tank.

I am still using the old Pull-rite or whatever it is that I bought in 03 for my Sunnybrook. Round bar and friction anti sway. Do these things ever wear out?

Highwat 4 x 4

Who knows, i hope for you it does, so you can upgrade to a better hitch, you will be so much happier ! We had the Harbor Frt version with friction anti sway and never could fiqiure out ( or make work ) the friction sway,for all the years we had our first TT and into our current one, didn't like the chains and having to unhook the anti-sway when backing. So we got the Husky Centerline TS ( considered the Blue Ox, but still evolved chains,and the cost )
and we love it, so much better sway control and easier to hook up !

We have the Husky Centerline TS, which seems to be pretty much a rip off of the Equalizer design, and i find it much easier to hook up than our old chain hitch, maybe the head is a little heavier, but loading the bars is so much easier than those darn chains !! MHO

Yes I did. And you wouldn't believe the outcome. Mind you that I'm a 1/2 ton tv and pulled 34' and believe it or not very comfortable. Click image for larger version

Don't forget about Fastway. I LOVE my E2.. It's a lot like the Equal-I-Zer. Great built in sway control.

No need for extra sway control with Fastway or Equal_I_zer when properly adjusted.
