Airsafe website does not list prices, but it has a phone number.
I called Airsafe on the phone just a little while ago to get those prices.
I can't afford one right now, but I would like to hear from someone with the Airsafe & Equal-i-zer 4-point anti-sway hitch.
It would even be better to hear from someone pulling a 30' Classic with a Tundra or other 1/2 ton truck with 20" wheels.

I can relate. Any disposable cash of mine is going toward a restoration and kids' sports.

I'm just trying to clear up debt.
3 notes left on the Toyota.
I 'm so tired of notes.
Them notes beat me down, whoop me down, make me tired.
Like I'm in the ring fightin' Mike Tyson.
Them car notes done bit my ear off.

I have the Airsafe, Equalizer combination on my 28 foot FC. Previously I used it on a 25 EB. I pull with a 3/4 ton GMC diesel pick up, (2013). It has really settled things down since I installed the Airsafe. Nothing moves in the trailer that we have been able to determine, and the trailer has a nicer ride over railroad tracks, and rough overpasses.

What Equalizer calls the shank, Airsafe calls the weight distributing bracket. My concern with this part was that the Equalizer head would bolt directly on to it ,was not sure if the holes were spaced the same. Sounds like they are.

Airsafe told me they will sell direct and gave me a quote of $975+ $50 for freight ; takes your breath away but beats road damge to the trailer. Do they have dealers that are a little better on pricing.

Who gave the $722 quote and did that include the bracket?

I called Airsafe 1-23-2014 and was quoted that price.
Look at post #30.
No mention of a bracket.
I don't really know what that is.
I didn't know to ask.
I guess something has to bolt to the Aisrsafe first to mount the Equal-i-zer hitch head to.

The Weight Distributing bracket bolts on first to the Airsafe and then the Equalizer head bolts on to that. You don't use the drop down WD bracket that comes with the equalizer, although I carry mine in the truck in case something should happen to the Airsafe or their bracket. The holes line up just like the equalizer bracket.

Airsafe alone ?

I'm have made up my mind to go with the Airsafe hitch. Now my big questions are , keep using my Equalizer hitch with the Airsafe ,or use an Airsafe alone. Weight distribution is not an issue as I'm towing a '63 Globetrotter with a 2500 4x4 Ram and the tongue weight is not an issue but sway is still a concern of mine. Cross winds and semis can do amazing things to you when towing. Airsafe claims to eliminate sway but at same time recommends using weight distribution per manufacturers recommendations.

I bought an AirSafe 3 1/2 years ago, just before a 15,000 mile drive to Alaska from Alabama. Since that trip, I've pulled the Airstream another 40,000 miles. I don't remember the people at AirSafe ever saying that it eliminates sway. Mechanically, there is nothing on the AirSafe that would eliminate sway. That being said, it does provide the trailer with a lot smoother ride, things stay put, and drawers stay closed.

With the AirSafe I use the Reese Dual Cam WD, and I've never had a sway problem. It's easy to hookup and unhook, and most important it works!
