I have a Husky brand Weight Distributing Hitch and a 30 foot travel trailer that I tow with my CC titan. I have the hitch set perfectly and still experience a little bit of sway. I was thinking of buying an equalizer hitch with the sway control. Have any of you guys started with the chain style WDH and switched to Equalizer hitch?Are any of you using the Equalizer and how do you like it?TIA

I'm very happy with my Equalizer setup, however it's all I have ever had so I'm not able to give you the comparison your looking for. Hopefully someone will have the comparison advise for you.

My brother used to tow with a Reese WDH. He loved it. I think he still had a bit of sway, but not much.

I have a 28 foot TT which is about 7500 lbs. I use a Reese dual cam HP setup and it works great for me. No problems with sway at all. I used to have dual friction sway controls and those really didn't do the job, still had too much sway.
The thing I like about the dual cam is when you are strait, you are essentially "locked" that way with the cams. So it takes significant force to get the trailer to turn. I mean, you don't really notice it, turning is not noticeably different. Once you overcome the holding force of the cams, it is just a small amount of friction after that. But when you get a gust of wind, you can tell it does not want to sway because it takes the back end truck with it. Not to the point of moving the tires or anything major like that. You can just feel it and you correct a little with the steering.
