I got the Equalizer set up with our Sport from the previous owners. They loved it. I will be setting it all up this evening. Here's hoping it goes well.

Towing with Tahoe

We have been towing a 28 foot Airstream for 2 1/2 years with a 2015 Chevy Tahoe with all the towing options and have been very happy with the combination. We use an Equalizer 4 sway control hitch as recommended by our Airstream dealer and have had no problems. It makes a little noise on turns but as long as we know what is causing the noise that is no problem. Happy in Texas.

2018 Airstream Sport 22=single axle=more prone to sway & bow waves.
Whatever you choose, do the research and set it up correctly.👍

AMHIK....63 23' Safari, got the sway managed, (dual friction bars), but never the waves...really would have liked the haha, but at the beginning we knew nothing and lived thru it.😳😂

Don't be swayed by the "cost is the issue" argument with the various big an issue was the cost of the AS?. What is the cost limit on safety & peace of mind.

All will have their opinions, for me, the incredible stability of the Hensley design and the “joy in driving” it imparts will insure that I recommend the hitches to anyone who will not have to endure financial hardship to buy one. That said I kind of like the concept of the Blue Ox setup, but I don’t think that it can actually intrinsically improve the handling of a combination like the Hensley designs. I don’t like the concepts of the friction designs, so I will never use one. Right or wrong, that’s my take.
The fact that I am opinionated does not presuppose that I am wrong......

Hey there! Tim at Out of Doors Mart in Greensboro can help you decide which hitch will work best for you with the tow vehicle you have. I got the Blue Ox Sway Pro for my 19' Flying Cloud and I've been happy with it, though releasing the chains on the sway bars was a little scary at first. The folks on this forum have been soooo kind and helpful about it.
