Ready for A New Hitch

I have been looking for a new weight distributing hitch. I am seriously considering the Blue Ox brand as well.

Just finnished a 10 day trip with the Blue Ox. It worked fine. We pulled about 1200 miles. It does as good in parking lots as it does on the highway. It is easy to hook up at most any angle and is very quiet. I am 10 times more satisfied with this than I was with the Equalizer. The only down side that I can see is the sway function. I think it gives some sway control but not to the degree that they advertize. When the trailer weighs 8,000 + I think the friction anti sway can only do so much. I have pulled the trailer without a load leveling hitch and it doesnt sway anyhow. I think having 6 wheels is the big difference there.

I hear what your saying but to be honest, I'm a little concerned that you are somewhat lukewarm on the sway control. From my standpoint the sway aspect is so important that any issue with the Equal-i-zer being noisy or its pins, etc. doesn't seem to justify a solution where you have some misgivings regarding the advertised sway control properties of your new hitch.

Hensley

I'm interested in the Blue Ox as well. I dismounted my Hensley Arrow and am selling it, since my Safari 28 is in storage. I plan to tow next summer. The Hensley worked fine but was difficult to hitch up and unhitch sometimes. For towing with a light vehicle, it may be necessary. I plan to tow with the Dodge Ram 2500 and won't need it.

I use a Blue Ox extra long shank on my Silverado. It pushes my 65 Safari back a couple of inches so the tail gate will go down without hitting the trailers elect. jack.

Equalizer/Blue Ox

I traded my Equalizer this spring on a Blue Ox and love it. I was in need of new angle pins for the old hitch & felt like I was throwing good money down a hole. Several in our unit have Blue Ox hitches (Nebraska Unit) and like them a lot. Easy to hook up, quiet and no planned obsolescence.

Stopped by the factory this week for a tune-up as I bought it at a rally & didn't have a good tune at that time.

Nice people. They took all the time necessary to do it right.

Replacing the old hitch was like selling a boat - happy day.

Dwight
