In the west we have high winds so my 150 has a sway and wd  hitch. Andersen make one that use chains and works well.I could not imagine towing without it. I am sure glad of the sway bar when a big rig passes going 75 mph.GBA!!~SVJ

Hi SunvalleyJoe
What size Retro do you have ?
I have been doing lots of research on WDH and Anderson looks  the easiest, is yours holding up?
Thanks

we a 150 and also 34ft Jayco they work great .The 150 is box style no Canned Ham so quite a bit higher than 155 or 166  and we have never had a problem even in high winds in Sierra NV mts or high desert with the wind good luck sure you will be happy with the set up ps way lighter than the bar style(I have 2 them,of sitting in barn) good for scrap.

Gilberto, I also recently bought the Andersen WDH. I had been using a Husky with separate anti sway mechanism. I pull a 179SE fully loaded qnd ready to camp approx 4200 lbs. The Andersen has several advantages. It is light. Much easier to install. The build in anti sway design is wonderfull. I must say that since it has no independant adjustments , it may not be as aggressive as the Curt anti sway bar. The Curt however is a bit more sensitive to adjustment. As far a WDH the Andersen does what it is supposed to do as long as you tighten the adjusting nuts properly. All in all , tho it is relatively expensive, I enjoy using it more that the Husky trunion design with separate Curt anti-sway unit. 
As a side note I have recently purchase a Curt BETTER WEIGH device. $100, it gives pretty accurate TV weight, Trailer weight , WDH adjustment, Payload etc. Check it out, makes adjustment of WDH easy and positive.

The Better Weight sounds great, How ever this will not work  on out Truck since I have a Programer 
I will have to use a truck stop scale.
My Load on the 193 is 7,380 + -
Specs say 380 Tougue Weight that seems light by how much it pulls the truck down four inches?

God things are getting to high tech for towing . Just got back from Yosemite area met a guy with a R pod tt nice unit but he bought a cheap anti sway set up harbor freight i think. He did not read instructions and did not disconnect it for backing up into his space. He twisted the bumper and broke the ball attachment on the bar. Was he upset to  bad he should have read instructions. I recognized some of his language come to find out he was also Army Viet Nam Vet. GBA!!SVJ
