Sorry guys.

I am having a full moon monday.

Indeed, Equalizer hitches do not have chains.

I meant to say Eaz-Lift.

I will go back and edit my previous post.

What is better in the Reese WD? Round bar or trunion. The old hitch is the square one ( trunion) I am getting confused, The Easyrider will build the hitch to match the bars. I looked at the HP sway control, it looks easier to install and adjust for center.

Ira and others,

Do they really last that long?

I have the one that came with my Overlander and am wondering if they ever wear out. It does have wear in the trunnion areas and at the areas at the ends of the load bars, the places where they lock in and slide out of the notches.

We too are most certainly going to buy an Easy Rider Air Hitch.
In your case, I do not thing it will hurt, but you may be wasting your money.

It will not improve the ride of your tow vehicle, just the ride of the trailer. Unless your wife rides in the trailer she will not benefit from it.

You may want to check if it will not make it worse on your vehicle ride.

While the Easy Rider hitch is designed to transmit less shock to the trailer, based on the material I have read, it also gives an easier ride on the vehicle. Even the 5th wheel designs on other sites state that there is less bounce on the vehicle.
