I went ahead and ordered two 600# bars. They are smaller than the 1000# bars and leave a little more space for movement where they connect to the hitch. Hope this won't cause issues.
Took a 250 mile trip with the new setup. Seemed fine. Stiffer ride. More of the movement was transferred to the TV than before. Used to see the trailer sway a little in some situations. Now if it starts to sway, it stops almost instantly. Mileage dropped 2mpg.
I believe you will have to have sleeves made to fit the 600# bars in the 10,000# head. Actually, that would be great, we were talking about someone doing this on another thread. I am sure any good metal fab guy could make you sleeves for not much money.
We WILL of course expect pics and full feedback on how this works out. 600# bars in a 10,000# head is, IMHO, the only way to make an EQ work for me.
