Default Blue Ox WD hitch and sway control

Anybody have any experience with these? I like the idea of the rotating latch a lot better than the snap-up latch, and it will work with my tongue toolbox, unlike the snap-up style.

I have one that I use with our travel trailer. It's nice and easy to tighten down the bars on. I've only got a few hundred miles on it so far, but it seems to work pretty good, I can't really tell the camper is behind me while going down the highway. I'm able to back into our camp sites or the driveway without having to unhook anything, unlike the friction sway ones.

I'm sure this doesn't help, since I don't have many miles on it so far, but as of now I have no complaints.

Got another 700 miles on it, no complaints at all. It keeps the sway under control better than I would thought, the rotating latch can be a little difficult sometimes to latch. If the truck and trailer are on level ground you can almost do it by hand, if one or the other is on a side to side angle, it can be pretty tough to rotate them with the little wrench they provide.

Thanks for the feedback. I have one sitting in the garage ready to set up on the new trailer. I hope I like it as much as everybody else seems to.
