I'm picking up my brand new 2014 2301BH tomorrow afternoon (3/6). I'm hoping to get her all set up then head to the CAT scales to check everything out. I'm thinking we are gonna LOVE it!

Hi,
I have a 2451 pulling with a Ford Expedition Limited. What brand of hitch are you using? I'd be interested in knowing if you have any sway problems.

I have an EZLift with two friction sway bars and I feel like I need something else.

Thanks,

Bill

Sorry I won't be much help except to say, built it up as needed. I have NO extra equipment and don't seem to need it.

My Touareg has E-sway control and airbags that level it. And my 2012 Ram 2500 also has E-sway control and frankly loves the weight on the back to offset the weight of the diesel iron block.

I towed from Atlanta to Orlando in February, passing trucks at 70mph and it was rock solid.

Don't let the dealer sell you a bunch of stuff you may not need. Tow it around and add hitch components as needed. Just make sure you have a "real" ball and ball mount rated at at least 10k lbs. Most of the stuff at autoparts stores and Walmart is only good for 5k lbs.

My dealer set me up with a sway control equalizer hitch. I don't like the noise so far but my truck is level. All this I say with a mere 12 miles towing.

There are nylon pads that you can put on the hitch to help reduce noise. I put them on our Equalizer hitch just before it went into winter storage, so I can't say how they will hold up, but I can get back to you after our upcoming trip at the end of this month!

Depending on your trailer and tow vehicle, I have always said start with no extra equipment and add only what you need.
Hanging one of these relatively small 18-20' TTs off the back of a modern truck probably doesn't warrant much (if any) extra hitch gear.
Now, if you have a 28 footer on the back of a minivan, it's a different story!
