Hello Jerry,

I've got a 3/4 Dodge SRW, and have pulled my 1966 26' Overlander a few times, and agree that a WD hitch is not necessary. The tongue weight is not that heavy on our trailers. I do however use the sway control, so I've been using a WD hitch set up, just not putting the load bars on. I like having the sway control on there, but with your dually, you should be fine.

I'm confused. How are you getting sway control out of the system without putting the bars on? The bars are what provides the sway control.

Is a weight distribution hitch necessary?

Imo you NEED neither WD or antisway for your 3500 so long as you drive cool and keep it below about 62.

A ProPride or a Hensley will make your ride more pleasant though. (For the antisway, never mind the need for WD with your mildly loaded 3500)

As a disclaimer I will state that I have;

A. Towed on the ball.

B. Towed with a Hensley.

I cant say how well other devices change the towing experience, I can only state emphatically that an articulated hitch greatly alters the towing mannerisms of the combination to an amazing degree toward the positive.
