I'm going to toss this out. First off, I always buy the biggest hitch bars that I can get. Bigger is better then smaller.

Have you looked at the Equalizer hitch system?

Good Luck,

Rickit, we have the Equalizer Hitch and like it really well, easy to hook up and it is also sway control, uses about a 1" solid steel bar on both sides and a fully adjustable head unit. Never had any problem with sway using it.

I have towed with both, and to be honest, I won't go back to the Reese system.

The Equalizer has no chains, and no snap up bars.

The do make a bit of noise at times.
