Re: 17 Footer Hitch Height

Jim,

I'm using a Draw-Tite friction-type sway controller. very simple device. I'll post a pic of the setup later today. Seemed to work very well with very little hassle.

Steve

Re: 17 Footer Hitch Height

I found that unit online. It seems that friction type is about my only option, as all other sway controllers work with equalizing hitches. I am not sure whether I will just go ahead and get one, or wait and see how badly I need it. I would think the tandem axles on the 19 would help sway a bit.

Jim,

Here's the pic of the friction sway control. I find it gives me a little extra peace of mind traveling in our wind-prone location (Eastern Sierras) and when rogue truckers blow by at 75 MPH +.

Thanks for the photo Steve. I think I might install one just to be sure.
