EZ Lift sway control

Just pulled the trigger on an AF trailer. The dealer told me the EZ Lift would be adequate for the 22footer, but also has Equi-lizer hitches as well. If my research is correct the EZ Lift only has an add on friction control. The Equilizer is integrated through the trunnions themselves. I pull with a 2009 Tundra. Should I spring for the extra cost of the integrated system? Opinions..facts..preferences?

For what it's worth (about 2 cents worth!) I towed a very heavy 26' TT approximately 25,000 miles over the last 21 years using an EZ Lift friction damping sway control.

I was very happy with it. During those years it never put me in a position where I thought the trailer was at risk. The only advantage of the Equilizer is less to hook up, but I seem to recall some complaints about noise from the hitch.

Like I say, FWIW.

Enjoy your new unit.

I use an equal-i-zer E2 when pulling my Airstream. I have only been using it for 3 years but have towed in good weather, rain and high winds and the trailer/hitch combination has never given me problems.

The reason I went with the E2 is I can change the bars out if I get a heaver or lighter trailer. With the equal-i-zer you have to change the hitch if you go from a lighter to heaver or heaver to lighter trailer. Right now mine is a bit of overkill. I am using a 10000# hitch with 1000# bars. I will be lowering my bars to 600# or 800# when I make up my mind on which one I want. An Airstream likes a soft hitch but the 600# might be a little too soft.

Just my two cents also.
