  • Curt

Friction-style sway control system uses a telescoping bar with friction pads to fight trailer sway. Adjustable tension lets you set the right amount of resistance for your setup. Attaches to your trailer and weight distribution system or ball mount.


Features:

  • Friction-style sway control effectively fights trailer sway after it begins
    • Reduces side-to-side movement caused by winds, passing traffic, curving roads, or sudden maneuvers
  • Bar unit houses the sway control mechanism
    • Interior arm telescopes in and out as your trailer moves
    • Friction pads rub against each other to create resistance
  • Adjustable tension lets you set the perfect amount of control and resistance
    • Tension-adjustment screw easily turns in 1/4" increments to fine-tune tension
    • Built-in lever lets you disengage the system to completely release tension
  • Trailer-mounted ball lets you connect the bar unit to your trailer frame
    • May be mounted to either side of your trailer
    • Bolt-on installation with included self-tapping screws
  • 1-1/4" Hitch ball mounts on weight distribution system head to provide attachment point for sway control unit
    • Included adapter bracket can be welded to system head if there is no ball mount platform
  • Easy to remove - simply unclip the bar unit from each attachment ball using the included safety clips
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Note: Not for use on trailers with surge brakes. It is recommended that you remove this sway control unit before backing up/reversing and before towing in slippery conditions such as on wet, icy, gravel, or snow-covered roads.


When installing this sway control system, follow the included instructions and measure 24" straight back from the center of the coupler along the frame of the trailer to determine the location of the spacer plate and trailer-mounted attachment ball. To achieve proper alignment, the spacer plate may not be necessary in every application.


Curt Sway Control on Trailer Frame

One friction-style sway control can be used for trailers with up to 6,000-lb GTW. If your trailer's GTW is between 6,000 lbs and 10,000 lbs, you will need 2 sway-control units, 1 on either side of the trailer. You will also want to use 2 units if your trailer is 26' or longer.

This is a replacement for one i didn't hook up and left it on the trunk of the trailer and never found it after I got home....lol This one was a direct replacement for my 06 model and it works great. As usual etrailer had what I needed and at a good price!

Happy to report that after using this for a year it still works like new. Im very happy with the product

I pull a travel trailer with a Audi Q7 TDI and it is a unibody car and in the owners manual it states not to use a WDH. My trailer takes about 250 lbs. off of the front axle so the steering input is just a bit light. With this sway control bar by Curt the car and trailer feels as one and the control of the trailer is great.

The sway control kit I ordered went on the receiver of my travel trailer easily and fits well. I tested the turn radius to see how sharp of a turn it would make without "hitting" and it performed perfectly. I haven't had the chance to take it on the road yet but don't anticipate any problems.

Im so glad I ordered the sway control kit. Ive used it several times when pulling my travel trailer and it has made all the difference.

etrailer is great to work with. Many vendors can perform well when everything goes right - you find out what they are made of when your order doesn't go as planned. UPS lost all of the hardware (the end of the box was gone as well) - etrailer quickly shipped me a replacement. I'll happily continue to order from etrailer.

Received my anti-sway bar to add to my weight distribution hitch in less than a week. Fastest service I’ve ever had. Installed it and it works great! I could only go 57 mph before and now can keep up with everyone else on the freeway! etrailer is a great place to get anything trailer related. Have always had great service and will buy from them again. 5 stars

Works like a dream! Easy to use and install. I would recommend this to anyone looking for one.

Added this sway bar as a second one for my ToyHauler. With all the weight in the back of the trailer I needed a second. Since this brand was currently on my trailer and also on a second trailer I went with the tried and true. With the second sway bar I can pull my ToyHauler at 80 MPH next to tractor trailers and not get any after sway, it pulls straight. I highly recommend this sway bar, it only took me 30 minutes to install, most of that time was getting the measurements correct.

I am using this with the sway bar on my weight distribution hitch. Being a toy Hauler most of my weight is in the back, I have no problems towing no sway, no bounce very satisfied

Best towing device I have bought except electric brake controller. Total game changer for pulling my single axle 17 foot Whitewater Retro trailer. Some effort to drill holes in frame, but just indicative of how strong the metal is on the tongue, just be sure to use good drill bits. Driven in 50 mph crosswinds and no waggle! This should be standard equipment for every trailer. eTrailer has great prices and super fast delivery, always happy with my purchase experiences with them. Only improvement to device would be some kind of way to secure it to the tongue when not in use, it drops down perpendicular to ground and occasionally creates a problem with lowering trailer on to trailer ball or when leveling at campground. I just loop one of the security chains around it after unhitching and it is up and out of the way.

Unit works as intended. The problem i had with these sway control devices is that there is no instructions on how tightly you have to clamp them down to get the desired results. It took lots of trial and error to find the correct amount of sway control for my application. And part of the problem was a video i saw on youtube where a man tightened them down too far and it pulled the small ball off of the a-frame on his trailer. If i could afforded it, I wish I would have bought a newer style WD hitch with built in sway control instead of these slides.

Love it! Bought this so could take trailer out west. Did an excellent job of preventing swaying. Didn’t even know the trailer was behind us going down the road.

Looks to be a good product but before welding pieces together I would temporarily mount the sway bar and adjust as necessary. The flat bar that is welded to your hitch sticks out more than necessary.

The shipment package did not contain bolts or pins but you sent that upon request. But FYI the directions called to drill holes 11/32" but when I screw the bolts in [3/8 "] they stripped out easily. You need to check this problem out. I may have to weld them on now if I can't figure a way to secure them. But I overall I'm well pleased. Thanks

This is my first time purchasing from etrailer and I have to say the experience couldn't have been better. I purchased this sway bar and other items for my new tow vehicle. After trying to piece together everything I needed for towing on a couple of other websites, and not having much luck, I went to etrailer. I was able to find everything I needed, very detailed product information, easy to navigate website, quick shipping, GREAT communication from customer service, and a price that was equal to or better than the other websites. Hands down a happy etrailer customer!

No problem with the sway bar, BUT the Curt ball mount with sway bar mount looks like it has twisted. I only pull a Casita travel trailer 3500lbs behind my half ton pickup and havent put any unusual stress on it. Kind of disappointed...
Brian - 07/24/2019

If it has twisted then I would advise discontinuing using it. As called out in the instructions if this sway control bar or any of the components come into contact with the trailer while in a jack knife position it is recommended to remove the sway control bar while backing up.

Curt Weight distribution hitch assembly including dual Curt 17200 sway control bars for our heavy 30 foot RV. Purchased through Etrailer Corp. the information from Etrailer was fantastic on which hitch assembly was best for my application, the hitch, bars, sway arms were delivered exactly on time with no scratches or damage. My light weight 2010 pick pulled well and was level and handled winds and passing semi trucks in the wind a pleasure! Unfortunately I don't have pictures to show because I have recently bought a new F-350 and a new 40' -5th wheel trailer and from Etrailer purchased a Demco 18K Hijacker Auto Slide 5th wheel Hitch that works fantastically. Thank you Etrailer for best prices and service!

This sway control package is just what we needed! After towing our 3300 lb camper home with my wifes Jeep Cherokee, WITHOUT an anti-sway bar, I said I wasn't towing the camper anywhere until we had this installed. We drove in 20-30 mph crosswinds the entire 4+ hour drive back. With this installed, we hardly notice it. Now, you can't get rid of the wind itself, but you certainly don't have to worry about the trailer starting to move around on it's own - this is great for stabilizing everything. Easy to install - just used the template they include with it, and then just drilled some holes through the frame of the camper and installed the hitch, hooked up and we were ready to go. We only use Curt products for our vehicles, utility trailer, and camper - nothing compares in my opinion.

etrailer is the place to buy trailer and towing equipment. They know the products and have good prices. Maybe I could save money some where else but would not be worth it. Love etrailer service and help.

Great product. Installation instructions were clear and easy to follow. Everything pictured was in the package. I paired mine with the Curt ball mount receiver w/sway control tab 2" hitch item ID D320. Products work perfectly together to stop the sway. I would highly recommend this system to anyone looking for sway control.

Bought this to use while pulling my 27 foot camper with my Chevy Tahoe on the interstate. Made all the difference in the world and is the best money out side of weight distribution bars I have spent on the camper.

The anti sway bar works well and well worth buying and installing. There are 3 things I would say about it. 1. It has a 4 bolt mounting plate instead of 6. Disadvantage: poorer force distribution, Advantage: less drilled holes to weaken frame. 2.Could use better instructions on how to set it. It really is quite useless if you set it too loose. 3. Watch out for the front clip. Mine came off but the sway bar stayed attached (that's a good thing). I put a safety wire around the safety clip now.



- 17200
by:

This was a great addition to my hitch I purchased 2 because of the length of my trailer and the weight that I tow.I have not had a single issue with towing in wind or letting off the accelerator to soon or going down hills. I highly recommend this is great addition to any hitch.



- 17200
by:

High quality and easy to use. This gives moderate assistance and works well with our boat for short trips. This won’t work as well as a full stabilization system, but really helps on the highway towing our 21’ boat. I have recommended this to others and would again as an inexpensive short range sway assistant.

  • Can and Should you Use a Sway Control without a Weight Distribution System
    If you are perfectly happy with how your 2017 Ram 1500 is handling the weight of your trailer and you only want to address the sway, we definitely have a sway control for you. It's the Curt Friction Sway Control, part # 17200. This includes the piece to mount to your trailer frame and the piece to weld onto your ball mount along with everything needed to get this working. It can be mounted to either side of the trailer frame and uses friction to control the sway. I've linked to a...

  • Can A Weight Distribution Hitch Be Installed On A 2019 Audi Q5?
    I can't recommend a weight distribution hitch for your 2019 Audi Q5 because your vehicle design prohibits it. I can recommend the Draw-Tite # 76183 standard Class-III hitch paired with a Curt # 17200 Sway Bar. The benefit of using a weight distribution hitch is the ability to move some of the tongue weight to your tow vehicle's front axle and to the trailer axle. If you can manually manage the distribution of weight in your trailer safely then you could use a standard hitch with sway...

    We do have options for you to add just sway control to your setup but there are a few things to note. One of the most effective methods to fighting sway control is making sure your trailer is loaded properly. This means that the loaded tongue weight (TW) of your trailer is 10-15% of your loaded trailer. You can use a scale like # 5780 to help you accomplish this. When your trailer is properly loaded then adding a sway control unit is your next step up to help control your trailer. One...

  • Reducing Sway with Existing Weight Distribution System When Large Vehicles Pass On Highway
    The type of sway you're describing is certainly something that a weight distribution system (with integrated sway control) can help reduce or quickly resolve but it's also something that's hard to avoid when towing. Any time you get passed by a big semi-truck on the highway or you experience high crosswinds, trailer sway/movement is an unfortunate inevitability that components like your WD system can work to limit but not ultimately prevent altogether. With that being said depending...

To set the brake tension bolt you will need to perform a series of road tests with the loaded trailer. If there is not enough sway control adjust the tension bolt 1/4 turn clockwise (tighter) if there is too much tension adjust the tension bolt counter clockwise (looser) 1/4 turn.

    When using a friction style sway bar such as # 17200, as long as you are backing up in a straight line on level ground you can leave it in place.

If you wanted a twist style from your local hardware store that would work well too.
