Try adding the 6th washer. I did and I am very pleased with the results.
Everyone, including the folks at Equal-i-zer say you shouldn't have to, but I could never transfer enough to the front axle or trailer axles before.

After a couple of years with the Equal-i-zer and finally getting it dialed in, I like it and have abandoned the desire for a Pro-Pride- at least until I have $2,300- the car will be paid off in February, 2020- the house will be paid off in May, 2027- the Airstream will be paid off in October, 2032-

"When we left I had to pull the trailer out to level ground and connect the bars. Of course when I did that 3 cars decided to leave also and I held them up while I hitched up the bars."

Of course! That's the first rule of campsites....someone will always come by at the worst possible moment! It's like when I had a sailboat ..there were always spectators when you missed a landing at the dock!!!

You are actually lucky you can tow without the equalizers. My truck and probably all those using smaller/lighter tow vehicles would drag its butt.

We have a Hensley...came with the trailer. I would never spend the money on one. I have had absolutely no issues with a standard equalizer on 4 different rigs, but I'm sure if the time comes, I will be happy the Hensley is back there. The more you tow, and probably the faster you drive, the greater the risk of needing the stability of the Pro-Pride or Hensley.

I would not have been able to hook up or un-hook the Hensley under the conditions you encountered. When we get a seriously out of level campsite for the night I stay hooked up and use the jack to pry everything into level front to back.

I'll likely never drive fast enough to see the benefits of a ProPride, Hensley, or 16" wheels and Michelin Tires.
I can probably stick with the Equal-i-zer and 15" wheels if I never exceed 65 mph.
I will, however, replace the Goodyear Marathons at some point.
