Equalizer 4 point, upgraded to this very happy. Can be obtained on line much less than local. That brings its price point to competitive level of other systems.
I think you will find they all do what there designed to do. I think marketing is mostly geographic dealer location to vender ( supplier ) promotes one hitch over another.
In closing I'd simply go with a system that has built in sway.
Another note. I use the Equalizer and I added friction sway control in addition to. ( but I enjoy tinkering ) Click image for larger version

I went with the Blue Ox Sway Pro on our new Conquest 268BH for the same reasons listed above. Our dealer initially sold us too light of a spring bar and refused to swap them out after I had towed with them 2 times.

Blue Ox customer service was outstanding! They confirmed that I need the next size up bars and sent them out overnight so we would have them for our upcoming camping trip. I haven't had customer service like that in a long time!

Blue Ox Swap Pro. We're towing a Crossroads Z1 328sb, weighing 7800 dry, 8600 loadded for camping, with an F150. The sway control works well. Blue Ox's aftersales support has been excellent.

The best is Propride. Get ready to pay $2000-2500.
Next best is Equal-I-zer.

I like my Equalizer 4-point. I hardly feel anything with passing trucks. My only complaint is that it is very heavy when removing from TV.

I also have the Equalizer E4 hitch and love it. Crosswinds and semi's are never an issue. It is heavy but I love the simplicity, no adjustments needed once you have it dialed in!

I think any of the hitches in the $500-$600 price range perform about the same really. They all do the same thing. I have an equalizer and it works well. After hitching it only takes me a minute to put on the bars and if you use their lubricant once very few trips it stays silent.

I use the Reese dual cam system and love it. This is the second camper I've used it on the first camper was a 2001 SunnyBrook at 4500lbs dry and have now moved it to my new 2016 Springdale 271RL at 6600 lbs dry. I pull my camper with a 2011 1/2ton Silverado it has a 5.3 with 3.42 gears. I pulled this weekend and everything towed great

After two trips so far with our new Blue Ox Sway Pro I am still loving it. Fast to hook up and unhook, quiet, smooth riding and no sway at all.
