We have a Hensley. It is pricey, but we have no sway at all and semi's don't affect it at all. Easy hookup also. We have had it for about 12 years on three different trailers.

Those with Henley's swear by them. If you are seriously looking at them though then you should check out the ProPride 3. Designed, made, sold by the guys that did the Henley originally. It's not quite as pricey, but it's up there!!

I recently bought the same trailer and pull mine with a 1/2 Suburban (5 kids, inc. car seats so crew cab not an option!!). Will be upgrading to the 3/4 when the funds become available!!! I have the Husky CenterLine and have towed it over 3 weekends in the month that I've had the rig. So far I'm happy with it, WD works, sway prevention works - the only real drawback I've found is the difficulty adding/removing the WD/sway bars if the TV is more than a few degrees off being directly inline with the trailer. I've been on the highways and have been passed at speed by the semi's. You know they're there, I feel a little increase in speed, but not much if any sway.

If $ wasn't an issue I would likely go with the ProPride. We don't go too far or too often, but after looking into the physics etc. they do offer a great product. I felt that the CenterLine was a good middle ground and decided to try it first. If I don't like it then the ProPride will eventually get ordered - but not likely before a new TV!

Equalizer is what I have and love it! It is a little noisy when turning as it uses a metal on metal platform, but once the paint is scuffed off it becomes much quieter. the noise will turn heads in a campground though. and its one of the quickest connect/disconnect systems I have used.

I use a Reese Dual Cam on my Tundra pulling a ST29SS and love it. Not to knock the dealers but I won't let any of them install one. While its not that difficult it is more time consuming than I think they are willing to spend. The instructions that come with the hitch are complete and E- trailer has some great videos.

Before I had my 5ver I always had Reese hitches and never had a problem with them.

If you go with the Equilizer 4 point sway ....get the bracket jackets to stop the grinding/squealing noise . they work great ...and only $20 .google them

I have the Equal-I-Zer and love it. And thanks to Harley I did order the bracket jackets today I have never had a problem with sway or with tractor-trailers passing me. The Hensley does look like the best IMHO but not for that money.

Lloyd,
You're so right, and actually even though I bought the Ford Dec 1st, I have yet to put over 500 miles on it LOL. I can't take it out and hook it up to the camper as the trucking company has all the campers plowed in As soon as I get it hooked up I'll update the picture...but based on our weather reports...it won't be for a little while...

Enjoy the rest of the winter Lloyd,
Jim
