Hitch sway bar

I just purchased a 2018 Zinger M-34RS. I have a Ford F-250 SuperDuty. Would like a recommendation of proper hitch sway bar assembly. Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the forum. Been a while since I pulled a pull behind. I’ll let someone that’s more up to date on sway bars and hitches than I am.

Welcome.
Although I've never used anything else, I've had good success with the Equl-i-zer Sway Control Weight Distribution hitch I got feom the dealer when I purchased my rig.
However, the most important thing for any of them is to make sure it's adjuster correctly for the tow vehicle.
Hope that helps.
Happy camping.

X2 on the Equal -i- zer 4 point sway control/weight distribution hitch. It's worked very well for our setup.

I give a third thumbs up on the setup. Granted, it’s the only one I’ve used but it’s been easy and seems to work. A friend has a WD system that utilizes chains and a separate swag control bar. It’s kind of difficult and he said he wouldn’t repeat. I’ve seen him set up and my setup seems a bit faster and easier. I never have to use the pry bar while he has to use it on his!

Reese / Straightline

I used a Reese (now Straightline) Dual Cam WD and Sway Prevention set up. The beauty of this system is that in addition to weight distribution the rig prevents sway before it begins. If the trailer does sway, the cam action brings the trailer back to center. AND you can back your trailer without disconnecting any of the hitch.
I was pulling a 26’ Keystone Bullet with a F-150 and never once got even close to sway. Especially when being passed or passing by a big truck where the air flow mid-truck tries to suck your trailer in. Loved it, and if I hadn’t gone to a fifth wheel, I’d still be using it 10 years after purchase.

I’ve used a Blueox swaypro for several years and have been happy with it. Having said that it’s the only one I have used.

I use the CURT on mine and it seems to be doing a good job. The theme here seems to be go with a good know manufacturer.

As to recommendation, it's been years since I've owned a TT & don't recall what brand it was, but it worked great.
My best advice is whatever brand you choose read the set up instructions, watch videos or visit with others with the same & learn how it should be setup properly so you are able to fine tune it to your liking. The dealer/installer has no cards in the game & has but one goal.......get it installed so they can move to another.

I use the Reese Stediflex and really like how it works. I think the key is not so much about the brand or type, it’s about hitch set up and paying attention to how you’re loading the weight inside the camper.
