I'm going to preface this by saying that I am, by no means, an expert. I actually have very little experience with any of this. I have a trailer that I am repairing to sell, and it is set up with a Equalizer hitch, and I know I didn't like it at all. It towed OK but I suspect that was more a function of the trailer than the hitch. My BF 21RB towed home OK on the ball however when I loaded it and filled the fresh water tank (all the way in the rear) and still just on the ball, the trailer made me nervous, it didn't feel right. After I installed the Blue Ox Sway Pro it towed fine....................
My biggest issue with WD hitches such as the Equalizer, E2, and even the Blue Ox Track Pro hitch is that they are Friction type sway DAMPENING hitches. They do nothing to actually hold the trailer straight. You could take a plain old round bar hitch with long chains that has no anti-sway built into it, and add one or two of the friction bars between the tongue and the hitch head, and achieve the same effect.
The Blue Ox Sway Pro, the Reese dual cam, and the Hensley/Propride hitches, all act to keep the trailer straight, and if the trailer does sway to one side or the other, those hitches are acting to force the trailer back straight again, and their natural tendency is to keep it straight.
As best as I can tell, the BOSP does its thing by a peculiar cant to the bar trunnions, and the rather short chains. When the truck and trailer get out of line, this all serves to increase the tension on one bar and takes the chain out of vertical, and at the same time, the bar on the other side has reduced tension (and yes, the chain also goes out of vertical). Thus the two bars and chains are constantly working to keep the trailer straight.
The Reese dual cam does an excellent job (from what I have read) of controlling the trailer. Its going to stay straight and if it does get out of line, the rollers will ride up out of the cam and this increased tension on the bars tries to straighten the trailer up again.
The Hensley designs of course use unequal length linkages to maintain the trailer in a straight line, projecting the trailer's pivot point near the rear axle
of the tow vehicle. I just cannot justify the expense, or weight of that huge hitch.
I probably sound like an advertisement for the Blue Ox Sway Pro but it has a lot of things going for it. It is slightly lighter than other hitches, as the head and most of the shanks that Blue Ox sells are cast steel and they have thinned out non critical areas, in addition the bars are shorter and much lighter than bars such as the Equalizer. The bars are actually SPRING bars that you can see the bend in them, unlike an Equalizer with that thick steel bar that seems to have no flex at all. (I always wondered what it would do to the frame of the truck in the long run). The hitch is extremely easy to install as there are few adjustments to make. I spent an entire day with the equalizer hitch on the other trailer, taking it apart and putting it together trying to get it "right" only to take it back apart and put it back together again. In the end, I wound up close to where I started.
In all honesty, one of the original reasons I selected the BOSP was that it did have a good reputation AND it was going to have minimal impact on the trailer's fiberglass parrot's beak.
The one thing I do like about the BOSP is that compared to no WD hitch at all the hitch minimizes "chucking" which is that up and down motion you get as you and then the trailer pass over speed bumps, RR tracks that are humped slightly above the rest of the road, and similar bumps and dips. I attribute this to the very springy bars. Both the Equalizer and BOSP that I have have 1000lb rated bars on them.
My travel buddy had a Reese dual cam on the old 30 ft Avion trailer he had (it came with the trailer) and while he was towing it with a Ram 3500 DRW he said the trailer just stayed planted behind him. He downsized dramatically and bought a real nice 2015 Winnebago 1706FB. That was the very first year of the Winnebago Towables and that was the only model they made that year. He bought it used from a guy in the Navy was had bought it to live in and then got married...... and well.... living in a trailer was not working out. Anyhow, it came with an Equalizer hitch, but Steve, like me, really didn't like the hitch.
I found a very nice BOSP on the Atlanta Craigslist last fall
and met the seller and bought it. Turns out the seller worked for the same company, in the same facility, I retired from. Anyhow it was a deal I could not pass up. I later sold it to Steve and he set it up and has put a number of trips on it now, and is much happier with it (he now has a 2017 RAM 2500 Cummins in place of the older dualie he had) He did have to get that 2Ĺ inch shank with a longer drop however.
Kinda made me mad, because earlier last summer when I was shopping for a BOSP I could not find one in the Atlanta area, and ended up driving to Tampa to get the one I have (practically new however) but the seller was moving and he gave me a bunch of other stuff, power dogbone adapters, zero gravity lounge chairs, etc.
Enough. Hope you get your trailer soon.
Further edit: since your truck is a relatively new Ford, many people have been having trouble getting the safety chain hooks into the holes on the hitch. What the problem is, I am not sure, however I see a good number of Super Duties that have added these hammerlock chain connectors to the hitch to hook the chains to.
