New Pop-Up Owner

Hello,
Newbie here, to the site and to pop-upping. We have an '07 Fleetwood Arcadia and '04 F-150 (4.6L V8) Supercrew. My wife, and two boys ages 4 and 6 LOVE camping and are "earning our stripes" the hard way- with good ol' fashioned stupidity by the "man of the house". LOL.

Any way, we've been able to figure a lot of things out, but had a rough ride back from Stone Mt, GA (LOVE THAT CAMPGROUND-by the way) this past weekend. I have been looking into WD Hitches and Anti-sway and was hoping you fine folks could lend me your ear, and advice.

Thanks in advance, and God Bless!!!

Family of Vols

Welcome to iRV2. How big is your pop up? Reese makes a Mini-350 for larger pop ups.

its about 19' closed and ~3500 lbs with the tanks full and some cargo on the inside. I have been looking into the "E2" hitches (without the chains). Has anyone tried that hitch? Also, what are the better brake controllers out there? Prodigy?

For Brake controllers, the Prodigy is a popular one, but it is still an inertia based controller. The next step up and it is a big step, is a Maxx Brake which is tied to the hydraulic system in the truck. The Maxx Brake is the best add on brake controller on the market today.
