I'm in the process of trying to find a hitch system for my 1965
26' Overlander. The dry weight is approx 4230 lbs., hitch weight 420 lbs., hitch ball height 18-19", Hitch ball size is 2. The trailer currently does not have sway control, but it does have the snap up brackets and trailer end balls for the friction type sway controls. My TV is a 1990 Chevy full size van, which was specially equipped with heavy duty leaf springs in the rear (the original owner had these added as he did not tike how it towed his travel trailer without them--he stated that with the HD leaf springs, the van could tow up to 9K pounds.)
Do I want to stay with the friction sway control or is a dual cam set up better (safer)?
What is a trunnion style system?
I really don't know much about hitches. From this forum, it seems that some people like the Equa-li-zer brand, some people like the Reese. Is Draw-tite good? Would any of these brands be better for my specific set-up? Hensley Arrow seems to be out of my current price range. Speaking of price, is purchasing a used hitch a reasonable why to save on cost (there are a few other major things that need to be done to get my trailer campable!). I just want to be safe when I'm on the road. Any advice would be really helpful!
