On my previous Outback TT, we had the 1k Equal-i-zer hitch and I loved it. So when we bought our 321RES, I bought the 1.2k Equal-i-zer hitch and when installed at the dealer on pick up of the trailer, had no problems towing it home for 1,000 miles. Since buying new tires (Michelins and not sure why that changed everything) I have had a heck of time getting the right setup again as the trailer is swaying all over the place at highway speeds. I thought I had setup adjusted after raising the L brackets but am now back to trailer sway. After I got home last weekend from my third weekend in row out camping - its great living in Florida and getting to go so often
sorry! - I noticed that the Cougar was sitting a little nose high as we on a nice level concrete pad. So when I got home I dug out the directions, dropped the hitch ball an inch and went with the standard initial setup. So I'm going to start all over because I know this a great hitch from previous experience...I just need to find that right setup and "sweet-spot". We are heading out again next weekend with Turtle1, so I'll hit the highway and see how it does.
I did order the Sureline tongue scale this week and I'm getting around 1,100 pounds on the tongue with an empty fresh water tank in the back. As taken has said, it IS
a great hitch and an easy install and "user friendly". Grizz, I'll be interested in your thoughts about the 1.4k version of this hitch as I'm thinking maybe I should've bought that model instead.
