Default New Viewfinder owner

After much shopping my wife and I settled on either a Fun Finder 210 WBS or A Viewfinder. We found a new 2010 Viewfinder 24 fk at a great price and committed to it today.

We are moving up from a Burro 17, so it is quite a step up. I do art shows for a living and will be using the Viewfinder on the road quite a bit. The first outing will be in Miami in January, so hopefully I will be able to put the new unit through it's paces.

I will need to get a WD hitch. Should I plan on sway control at the same time?

My dealer recommended one, but if it's anything like mine, you won't be able to sneak up on anyone in parking lots. It howls like a yeti on slow-speed corners.

You might try a short trip or two without it to see how TV/Trailer combo performs. You can add sway control after the fact if you need it.

I have the WD hitch but no sway control on my 210 and don't have any issues. Of course the extra length on yours may make a big difference.

Most of the better WD hitches, Equal-i-zer, Reese, etc., have sway control as part of the weight distribution mechanicals and you'll probably find that no additional sway control is necessary. My Equal-i-zer's sway control is all that is required for my rig.

My 2 cents, your mileage may vary...

I am not judging any other WDH set ups.. but I have the Equal-i-zer.. with built in sway control.. and have been very happy.
