I'm curious what everyone who is towing (with an Equilizer bar set up), is using for weight bars on their rig / trailer setups?
I was reading about flex, I believe Andy mentioned in another thread about getting 3" of flex out his sway bars. My thought after reading these threads is the more flex the better (to a certain degree). I have a 28' 97 Excella, being pulled by a 2006 1/2 ton Chevy with a 410 rear end, I thought I had 1000lb bars on the Equilizer, but noticed the other day (while I was storing the bars) they said "1200 lbs". Is this overkill for the setup I have? I have been towing with these bars for 3 years now and I don't seem to have any problem yet, but I have read that problems with bars too stiff could cause problems not only with the truck hitch but problems with the trailer. Also, how does one know how much flex they are getting, do I put the trailer in a sharp angle and measure this somehow?
