Expert Reply:

For your 2022 Palomino SolAire Ultra Lite 304RKDS with a GVWR of 8,920 lbs and dry hitch weight of 920 lbs, when it is fully loaded you will have a total tongue weight of about 1,100 lbs. For that tongue weight, the best option for a weight distribution hitch is from Blue Ox:

- Blue Ox SwayPro Weight Distribution w/ Sway Control # BXW1500

The SwayPro # BXW1500 is rated for total tongue weights between 1,000 lbs and 1,500 lbs, so it is perfect for what the tongue weight will be on your Palomino SolAire Ultra Lite 304RKDS. Aside from being rated correctly, the SwayPro is the best option because of its benefits, starting with its superb sway control. It controls sway at four different points - at the hitch head and brackets - which offers the best prevention you can get against trailer sway, helping ensure you have the most controlled, comfortable, and safe towing experience.

It is also much quieter than other systems because it uses brackets that connect to lift chains, so you won't hear the loud, grating noise that comes with hitches that use metal-on-metal friction-style brackets. The SwayPro # BXW1500 comes with everything you need for installation, and is easier to set up than other systems due to the clamp-on brackets and lift chains. To get the right tension you just tighten the chains with the included wrench; other systems are far more time-consuming set ups that require measuring and re-measuring to get the right tension.
