I WAS going to use a single spring WDH to tow Casita w/ my Jeep Cherokee, but because I want to leave room on the "A" Frame for my Honda 2000i generator, I've decided to go w/ a 2-spring WDH.

They are offered in either round bar (bars have a 90 deg bend) or trunion mount w/ flat bars.

Other than ground clearance issues, I can see no clear advantage of one over the other. I asked my local RV dealer and he didn't have a clue, either.

Anyone here have any reasons for a preference of one over the other?

Thanks,
Bob

if some day you get a bigger trailer and want to up-grade to a dual cam sway control the trunion style hitch with bars that have a slight hoop on the end puts you that much closer and saving money in the end. the duel cam add on kit is just under $200 after the fact , or you can just go that road now and it will only cost about a extra 100.00 if you buy one whole sale. Friction sway control dont work as good as a dual cam set up.

Actually, I have a Hensley Arrow for big trailers. It's not as stable as teh PullRite I used, but it's very good.

As far as the dual cam Reese, I have considered using it for my little TT when I tow with my Jeep Cherokee. I've heard the dual cam is not good for anything under about 6000 pounds, though. Maybe that would be a good topic here, though?

"Big" is relative. My 3500# Casita is big compared to my Cherokee!
