Weight Distribution Hitches

I wondered if anyone pulling a bumper pull trailer uses a weight distribution hitch and, if so what kind and if you like it. I'm planning to buy one to use with our 3 horse bumper pull trailer. I've found quite a bit on travel trailer forums, but just wondered what those of you who haul horses think.

At one time the Equalizer System didn't work on horse trailers as the hitch on the trailer was too short. Had one on the travel trailer, only way to fly.

I have always had one, as have my friends with bumper pulls. I had no idea there were different kinds tho-they are all pretty much the same, as far as I know. You will also want electronic brakes. I would not tow without either. Better safe than sorry and it is cheap insurance. JMHO

I was checking this one out. Andersen 'No-Sway' Weight Distribution Hitch They are pretty new and use a different concept than the standard weight distribution hitch, but it looks pretty interesting.

Interesting. I would have to play with it and see how difficult it is to hook up. I really like that there is no pop and squeak.

If you don't mind me asking, FranknBeans, what kind of WD hitch are you using now and what kind of trailer are you towing?

I use one of the ones with the steel bars-no idea what brand, they are really common. I also tow an older heavy steel trailer. It does not move at all. Tows beautifully. My best friend has a really similar system, about 10 yrs newer, on an aluminum, and hers moves much easier. THe bars are really heavy, as is the hitch, but they are pretty easy to hook up. Maybe that's just because that is what I an used to......

When pulling a 23' travel trailer we found the anti sway bars made a big difference in a side wind.
