With the long tongue on my 28' Toy hauler which weight distributing hitch do you suggest. Kinda like Blue Ox.

Thanks, I like Equalizer a lot. I used system on my last trailer. Dealership seamed reluctant to suggest Equalizer, don't know why. No grease on my pants, no friction plate to release when backing up.

What kind of tongue weight does your trailer have when towing loaded? Haven't had mine out yet.

WHY do you need an antisway hitch?
