Equal-i-zer Hitch Celebrates 70 Years of Keeping Families Safe

Editor's note: From the first day we drove off the General RV lot with our camper, we have used an Equal-i-zer Sway Control Hitch. I'm convinced it has saved our bacon at least three times. The first was our maiden voyage, when a wind storm, that later produced a tornado 100 miles down the road, swept through while we were driving. The second was when we lost a tire off one of our axles. The third was when our tongue frame nearly came separated from a chassis frame. I will never use anything but an Equal-i-zer.

This month The Original Equal-i-zer Sway Control Hitch celebrates its 70th anniversary of keeping families safe on the road, and kicks off the celebration by moving into a brand new building. For the past several decades Equal-i-zer has worked to deliver superior safety and performance. The safety and reliability of the hitch is largely attributed to it being 100% made in America. High quality materials travel from Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania to Utah for machining, fabrication and assembly. “With top quality materials and family-focused employees, it’s easy to provide a lifetime warranty on each hitch,” said Rich Elliott, VP of Sales and Marketing.

“It is exciting to see how far the company has come. We work hard to provide the best sway control hitch on the market, and it’s great to see the commitment and dedication of our employees pay off as we hit 70 years,” said Jed Anderson, CEO.

The Equal-i-zer hitch started out as a product of Mobile Manufacturing in Salt Lake City, Utah where founder Edward Hedgepeth created the first integrated sway control hitch. The company has experienced changes in the industry, improvements to the hitch and growth in the company. In fact, the company has experienced such large growth it has relocated to a new building to allow continual progression and expansion.
“We are so happy to be in our new building. Our beautiful new place gives us the space and resources we need to work. This has been a very fun and exciting change!” said Josh Binks, CFO. Equal-i-zer has stayed true to being a company that works in a way to provide for its families, serve the community and provide a legacy of good. 

Equal-i-zer hitch is the proud owner of several awards including the Utah Manufacturer of the Year, Stag-Parkway Peach Award and the Trailer Life Reader’s Choice Award. The Stag-Parkway Peach Award was given to Equal-i-zer for recognition as an exemplary supplier partner and for “exhibiting exceptional customer service, providing superior sales and training support, and for being basically really good people to work with.” Equal-i-zer is also the only hitch chosen as Gold winners in Trailer Life Reader’s Choice Awards, and has received the Reader’s Choice award three years in a row.
