PROVO, Utah - Five years ago, Trailer Life Magazine launched the Reader's Choice Awards, a way to help readers share their opinions and experience with other trailer owners all over the country. Each fall, thousands of RVers vote on their favorite vehicles, destinations and products that make life on the road easier and more enjoyable. And each year, for five years running, Utah-based Equal-i-zer hitch has been voted the best performing hitch in America. No other hitch has ever received this recognition.
"We are dedicated to building the safest, best performing, easiest-to-use sway control hitch in America, and are honored that Trailer Life readers have, once again, chosen Equal-i-zer as the Gold Winner," Vice President of Sales and Marketing Rich Elliott says.
Equal-i-zer hitch combines weight distribution with sway control to minimize problems caused by passing vehicles, crosswinds and other towing hazards. Equal-i-zer is the only sway control hitch completely manufactured in America, from the highest-grade American steel, (coming from Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania), to its packaging. Each hitch is backed by a lifetime warranty, providing customers with complete confidence.
