Sway control for long TTs: What do you consider the best for the Tundra?

    So I've been looking around at the various forms of sway control out there, and I'm curious what type everyone here is using. I've seen a few options...

    A) Standard WDH with friction sway control, like the Equal-i-zer
    B) The permanently mounted Pullrite no-sway receiver/hitch
    C) The Propride straight line
    D) The Hensley Hitch
    E) The Anderson Hitch
    F) Other...?

    I'm still torn on what I want to pull, and I'm leaning more towards a 30-32 foot lightweight travel trailer (~5500lb dry weight). My concern, however, is sway... especially considering the 1500lb payload on the Tundra makes doing a 15% tongue weight extremely difficult on heavier trailers (8000lb+).

    Have any of you tried the above, and what did you think of them? I'm concerned with the pullrite because it doesn't appear to be a WDH, which could be problematic. I like the look of the Anderson Hitch, but I can't find a lot of info about it.

    So, what do you all think?

    I tow a 37' TT and my TV is an 08 DC Tundra. Earlier this year I upgraded my hitch to a Hensley hitch mainly because of cross winds and truck suck. The Hensley hitch does as advertised, it eliminates sway. It also eliminated the bank account. Its has been worth every penny. I'd make the same decision again. The biggest learning curve is backing into the hitch.
