My 17' Bigfoot came with a WDH and I used it on my first few trips. Then a Trucker came over and asked what I was doing with a WDH on such a small trailer. He felt it was counter productive and could even be dangerous. It has sat somewhere in the back of my garage ever since. Since then, I have also seen a warning against using them on some tugs, including my Ridgeline.

When I bought my new Escape I requested they not install the stock WDH. I have added an anti sway bar, though.

Did he happen to say why he thought that it was counterproductive and dangerous? What stock WDH are you referring to since all of them are options as far as I know.

Yes, there are some vehicle manufacturers who say not to use them on certain models, not because they are not needed or good but perhaps because of the vehicle construction and ability to take them.

Or, like Toyota, because they have not tested the devices on their vehicles, so they cannot recommend one.
