What are you hitched with?

Hi Campers!

What say we do another poll on what type of hitch you use?

Come on, itíll be fun!
Just remember, itís not scientific, nor is it an opportunity to pass judgement... so no alligator stories, I promise.

Weight distribution without friction bar. I've tried it both ways, with no discernible difference.

Still Equalizer, and I still don't type it with the hyphens.

When I was researching the Hensley, the best advise I got was, "you won't regret the investment". It's hard to explain to those who haven't used them.
I gave up trying.

Try it, you'll like it.

Not sophisticated but it works

There's another friction bar on the other side and yes, I know the clips are in the wrong way!

What are you hitched with?

Reese Strait-Line Hitch with Dual Cam Sway Control (Classic U-Bolt Type)
  • 1975 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible towing:
    • 1964 Overlander Land Yacht International -- 800 pound bars
    • 1978 Argosy Minuet 6.0 Metre -- 600 pound bars
  • 1999 GMC K2500 Suburban towing:
    • 1964 Overlander Land Yacht International -- 600 pound bars
    • 1978 Argosy Minuet 6.0 Metre -- 500 pound Light Weight bars
I have been very well satisfied with my older Reese Strait-Line hitch, and have been towing with the same basic setup since 1995.

Kevin
