Is there a difference in the hitch brands?

In looking only at the round bar WD hitches made by the many different manufacturers, I'm having a very hard time distinguishing functional or even quality differences between the brands. I'm not talking about the dual cams, or the other various sway control devices, but rather only the round bar, straight, WD torsion bar arms. I get that Equalizer and Fast Way E2 are different--they have untapered bars, but how about all the others?

It seems Eaz Lift may be the least expensive, while Reese perhaps is the highest cost -- but for what difference? The heads all look very similar, and the functions seems identical.

For those using this round bar, tapered arm hitch, how did you select the brand you are using?

...and then there's the question of trunnion versus round bar...

Is there a difference in the hitch brands?

I chose a hitch/WD/sway system from Curt Mfg. For our 34' Avion, I knew it would tow like a dream from past experience, so I started looking around at hitches. I decided to go with Curt because it appeared to be a good combination of quality, price, and capability. I called and spoke to their technical team and they helped me choose a round bar kit.

We have been very happy with it.
