    Hi All,
    I am looking to buy a 24' enclosed trailer for long distance towing. I have heard that some of the large enclosed trailers tend to cause sway at highway speeds bue to the large "sail area" of the trailer's sides. I would like to avoid this problem from the get go and was wondering if anybody out there has had any experience with the Hensley Hitch that was advertised in alot of RV / Trailer type magazines....The ad and theory of operation looks good but the price is
    frightfully high in comparison to the standard weight distribution hitch with friction type sway control.....Any users out there with opinions on either system?...My tow vehicle will be a 1993 W250 w/ Cummins power.
