Stop trailer sway before it begins with this dual-cam sway control. Cams lock in place on either side of trailer to supply consistent pressure, helping to prevent and correct sway. Works with weight-distribution systems with cam-style spring bars.
Note: Dual-cam sway control cannot be use with surge-type trailer brakes and is designed for Class III, Class IV and Class V hitches only.
Reese's dual-cam sway-control system stops trailer sway before it begins. This is a significant improvement over traditional friction-style controls, which help to correct sway only after it has already begun. This specially designed system uses unique sliding devices called "cams" to suspend the spring bars of your weight-distribution system. One end of a cam bolts onto your trailer's frame, and the other end attaches to the lift bracket via the lift chain. This type of sway control is compatible only with cam-style weight-distribution systems. The spring bars of these systems are designed with rounded, hooked ends that sit in the cams. The controlled placement of the spring bars keeps your system secure while still allowing enough movement for free, easy interaction between your trailer and your tow vehicle.
During basic, straight-line towing, the cams lock in place and hold the trailer steady by applying constant, consistent pressure to both sides. This keeps the trailer from swaying in crosswinds. When you go into a turn, the cams unlock and slide to allow a controlled, full-radius maneuver. If you swerve suddenly, the cams will give to accommodate the movement while still working to obtain a straight angle, thereby maintaining control of the trailer.

Today we'll reviewing part number RP26002. This is Reese Dual Cam High Performance Weight Control System. This weight control is going to attach to the Reese Weight Distribution Spring Bars, which are sold separately. That's going to be on both sides of your trailer. This is going to apply constant, even pressure to keep the trailer in line, and it works only with cam-style bars, either round or trunnion bars. This system is going to automatically adjust and self-center to control the sway in a variety of situations. If you're going in straight line movement, the cams actually lock into position to hold the trailer steady despite crosswinds.
When you're going around corners the cams are automatically going to unlock and slide to allow full radius turns. If you ever come into a situation where you need to make a sudden swerve, the cams actually seek a straight line angle to help stabilize the trailer. This is a simple bolt-on installation for a-frame trailers. You just want to make sure that your trailer frame width does not exceed 2-1/2". Right here on each bracket you're going to see that you have two holes upfront and one hole in the back. The distance between those holes, center on center, is going to measure 4-1/2" here on the front face of the bracket.
Another great thing about this mounting system is that it's not going to interfere with the items already mounted to your trailer frame, such as gas tanks or toolboxes. If you have a generator mounted it's not going to interfere with those. You do want to keep in mind that the dual cam sway control cannot be used with surge-type trailer brakes, and this is going to be designed for class three, class four, and class five hitches only. Pretty simple system to use. Everything that you need for the installation is included, and then this portion right here just fits over the end part, the end connection point. It's going to sit like that. This is where the arms from the weight distribution system is actually going to sit. Again, it's a very safe system to use.
The function of it is very simple and the installation is pretty simple as well. That's going to do it for our review of part number RP26002. This is the Reese Dual Cam High Performance Weight Control System. .

A difference you can feel... After trading our old camper, towing the new one home was a scary experience. I read tons of reviews about different sway control devices and decided on the dual cam. As we pulled on the highway for our first trip, I was a little nervous as I saw the first tractor trailer coming to pass me. To my amazement, no sway!! My truck and trailer did move over a little but it was together and without sway. Nothing can substitute for a properly loaded trailer and adequate tow vehicle but the dual cam is a great supplement. Installation was fairly easy with basic tools (ratchet, wrench, tape measure and drill) and etrailer.com has several videos that complimented the instructions very well. Their customer service is the best in ecommerce; plenty of communication and always available if needed. Thanks for making our vacations a little more relaxing!! 111702

I installed the weight distribution set on our 27 foot Arctic Fox trailer. The instructions were well written, the set went on as described and the system works very well. We now have about 10,000 miles on it. We have a 20 foot cargo trailer, I wanted to use the sway control in it. I ordered the extra parts to be able to change trailers relative easy. Vince was very helpful and got me the correct parts. Delivery was prompt and as forecast. Good place to do business, nice people that know the product. 149929

I purchased your weight distribution system for my camper last year 2015. We purchased a new camper and the system that I had for my other camper just didn't cut it. The camper was longer and a bit heavier, but the old system I had didn't stop the sway, and it was not comfortable pulling it. So started looking into systems that would help stop the sway. I went to etrailer.com, and found this product that worked with the distribution system I had. I called them and asked if this would indeed work to stop the sway. They made sure I had picked the right model to work with the one I had, and then told me that this was the best system out there. I watched their installation video, that was very helpful, and proceeded to install it. When I took it out for the first time, I couldn't believe it. The sway completely disappeared, and my comfort level went right back up to the top, along with the safety factor! Even when it's windy or a semi passes, it vertually stops the sway! I can't say enough about the product and the support from this company. I guess that is why they are in the business, and are the top rated! Thank you etrailer!! Greg H. ,Wisconsin 243545

Haven't installed the sway control yet but, if they perform as advertised I will be very happy. I paid for 3-5day shipping but they did not arrive for 7 days. Had hoped to install over the holidays but now will have to wait until the weekend. 167733

I have been using (2) friction sways when towing my 32ft enclosed car trailer. Now with this new dual cam unit, it eliminates the sway actually before it gets started. I feel like I have more control of my truck now when pulling my trailer. No more sudden movements when a semi truck passes by. Great product and easy step by step instructions. I would defiantly recommend this over the friction type sway controls. Thank You etrailer.com for your awesome customer service from start to end as I received an email confirming the order was placed, then when shipped, then a follow-up after I received it. The shipping was very fast and the product was packaged very well. 93481
I installed this last year and had to do some modifications because my battery tray area angle iron was in the way. After changing that the rest of the installation went ok. Setting the bars to the mounts took a few movements of towing and checking to make sure they settled in correctly. Our first trip out was in a very windy storm and I didn't have faith in them, but the wind was so bad it wasn't a good test. They did work but fighting the wind and rain was like driving through a tornado. The rest of the trip after that was great and they did the job no sway. 252265

Sway unit arrived promptly. It's 119 degrees on the Mohave Desert these days, so I won't be installing it until the weather cools. It is to replace the old unit I trashed this summer while making a very tight turn in an Aspen, CO parking lot. Sometimes the customer is at fault!!! Had to drive back to CA with no sway control and it wasn't fun with some really bad winds coming down I-15. It'll be back on the hitch before the next trip. 50968

I received the Reese High Performance Sway Control with 1200# trunnion bars for my 2013 Keystone Outback travel trailer. The directions were straight forward and installation wasn't too difficult. The biggest part was adjusting the cam arms, and making sure the measurements were correct for the cam placement on the trailer tongue. This system works beautifully, and I couldn't be happier. The price was reasonable too. 57592
FAIRLY EASY TO INSTALL AND ADJUST. TOOK ABOUT 1 1/2/HOURS. SUGGEST YOU USE COBALT BITS FOR DRILLING. ALSO NEEDED WASHERS BECAUSE RADIUS OF THE BRACKET WAS DIFFERENT THAN THE FRAME. BRACKET SHOULD SIT FLUSH ON THE BOTTOM FRAME. TOOK A TRIP AND FOUND NO SWAYING WHEN TRUCKS PASSED BY! NEED MUCH LESS OF ORIGINAL CHAIN, SO MAKE SURE YOU ADJUST LINKS SO THAT FRONT WHEEL WELL HEIGHT IS THE SAME AS BEFORE. 171070
My husband had no trouble installing and they have worked fine. Our trailer wasn't extremely heavy to begin with so we didn't have a real sway problem, but since we were planning a long trip on I-95 we thought it would be a good idea since we'd encounter a lot more big trucks. We never even noticed the passing of a big rig. Our camper just glided along behind us without so much as a shutter. 99287
I had a friction type on my 30 foot trailer that the rv dealer put on , then found out after doing some research that it is not enough for a trailer that large or of that weight !!!! Great rv dealer 30 years in this and they know enough to be dangerous !!! So took it off put this on and took it out on the hwy , Great !!!! So much better !!! took a little while to set it all up but worth it ! 83773

I have a 2014 Premier Bullet 31 feet long about 7,000lbs. I have Reese weight distribution and had a friction sway control. Have a huge problem with sway. I now purchased a new high performance control. This still did not help. I drove 35mph to keep the rig on the road. I don't know the next step. Etrailer gave me great service though I still have a problem. 138508

Fast shipping and great price from Etrailer. I love the dual cam system. Trailer sway is nearly eliminated with this system. Much better than the friction bars that I had on my trailer. My favorite thing about this system is that you don't have to disconnect anything before backing the trailer up. 239126
