I just recently bought a 27FB Globtrotter so my research on the hitches is fresh. I chose the new Reese Stedi-Flex and I am very happy with it. The WDH spring bars ride on friction pads in the trailer brackets so it gives you a controlled friction surface for the anti-sway. I have towed twice now, once from Arizona to Texas and the second time was from Dallas to Houston and back. The trip from Arizona to Dallas (My first tow!) was in a 50 MPH dust storm. Performance was fantastic. I was so glad I did my research! I never had to slow down below 55 even with 50 MPH gusts. Wind was mostly behind me and I got 21 mpg from the tow vehicle! (A Chevy 1500
with option NHT "Max Trailering")
The Steadi-flex was a bit noisy at first, but I sprayed the top and bottom of the spring bars where they fit into the ball yoke with "gel" WD40 (from Wally World). Now I hardly even hear anything from the hitch.
Not sure if the Steady-Flex will fit with the surge brakes. What has usually been the issue with finding something compatible?
