30 Ft Flying Cloud - Equalizer Hitch

We picked up our 2015 30 ft. Flying Cloud Monday from Bill Thomas Camper Sales and brought it home Tuesday. Trying to find where we want to put all our "stuff". We had the Land Yacht about six years and were organized; now we are starting all over!

We have towed airstreams for many years, but this is our first experience with an Equalizer Hitch. Our trip home was about 200 miles and the hitch was flawless! With other hitches, I didn't have a sway problem, but I could feel a slight movement in the Airstream when an 18 wheeler would approach to pass. With this hitch, there was no reaction at all when being passed. Our tow vehicle, 2015 GMC 6.2 l with max tow package also has a built in anti-sway package (applies brakes to counteract any sway) and I don't know if this may have also contributed to the lack of reaction when an 18 wheeler approached and passed.

Now, I have to figure out how to chance the motorhome profile photo to show our trailer.

Congrats on the new home away from home! We have a 23' on order and will be needing a new hitch. Many seem to like the Equalizer and it is affordable. I have also been looking at the Blue Ox Sway Pro. Can't make up my mind. lol Anyway, thanks for sharing your Equalizer experience and new trailer. Enjoy!
