Wryknow....I might just join in and mention to watch your tongue weight. As you may know this is very important to performance down the road and most importantly the overall safety of those in your truck and the other folks on the road. I pull a 25' Classic and the tongue weight is 870 lbs. By the time we add to it with cargo and stuff in the pickup bed we get right up to 1050-lbs rating on the receiver and maz out our payload rating on the truck.

We use the Reese WDH with the Trunnion Bars 1,200 lb rating. We use the friction sway control. It works well for us. Some of the guys use the ProPride or Hensley and from what I read they are thought to be the best. The problem I have with them on my F150 is they are so heavy that it first challenges my ability to use/lift it and secondly it adds substantially more to the tongue weight, and for me that extra weight takes it out of rating tolerance. I do think they are good products on the right truck for the trailers longer than 25'. Just my opinion, certainly not advice.
