Upgrading Hitch

I have not been here all winter. So, I go the itch to buy a new TT. Probably getting 30ft. with approximate dry weight 6000 lbs. What is everyone using for hitch? I read to exhaustion on the Hensley Arrow vs. Propride. I had a little sticker shock when I saw the prices. Are there better cheaper options?

There are less expensive options. Check out the Reesse Dual Cam and E-Qual-Izer. IMHO there are no better options.

We used and Equalizer for years on our travel trailer, it worked great!! Easy to hitch up, especially with and electric jack. No sway at all.

I used the Reese dual cam set up for 19 years prior to going with a 5er. It seemed to be a good set up, although there could be something newer and better on the market by now.

Not sure if you made up your mind yet, but I am very happy with the Reese Dual Cam. Some people only feel safe with orange or PP, but is it necessary? Not for me.
