    • Straight-line movement - cams lock in position to hold trailer steady despite crosswinds
    • Cornering - cams automatically unlock and slide to allow full-radius turns

    • Trailer frame width cannot exceed 2-1/2"
    • Mounting system won't interfere with items already mounted to trailer frame, such as gas tanks, toolboxes and generators

Dual-Cam Sway Control

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.



Dual-Cam Sway Control Turning

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.

Sorry for the long review. Purchased these as an addition to our Reese high performance weight distribution hitch. I was previously using friction sway control with our previous trailer, which was much smaller (by 10ft) and much lighter. Our new trailer is 36', 8,600lbs with a 950lb hitch weight. The tow vehicle is a 2016 F150 Lariat super crew with max tow. After towing the new trailer one time with friction sway control, I needed something else. Since we already had the hitch, I figured I'd try this instead of purchasing a new system. The dealer installed the kit as I was there for warranty work already. Towing the trailer home, the sway on the freeway was terrible. After doing a ton of research online, and various forums, I found dealers typically never put the time into setting this system up correctly, which I found is key for proper operation. I went through the complete setup with the hitch, and then the dual cam system myself (as I didn't trust the dealer who also originally set up the hitch as well). The instructions are a bit vague on setup, especially chain links from the cam to the snap up bracket under tension, which the forums helped greatly with. The dealer set this up to have 4 links under tension, when I found you need 5 at the minimum. Also found the 3/4 cam pivot nut not tightened anywhere close to 35ft/lbs. After setting this system up correctly, there is virtually no sway at freeway speeds. Moral of the story is that the setup is pretty tedious (took about 2 hrs), but once done, the system works great!

Reese's warranty replacement HP Dual Cam Assembly provides good sway control, once I assembled onto and adjusted to my 25-ft travel trailer's hitch dimensions. Both Reese's original and replacement Cam Arms arrived with damaged Adjustment threads, burred and blunted, made it impossible to rotate the Adjustment Nut either direction using only my thumb and forefinger inside the required Yoke. I had to pay $20 to a local machine shop to dress both Arms' Adjustment Threads to a smooth finish. Reese's suggestion that a small amount of WD-40 will solve this problem is a joke.

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!!


Comments
I wouldnt tow without it it makes that much of a difference. It is a bit of a hassle to disconnect for backing into tight spaces but otherwise I LOVE it! I towed our 28 camper to the NC coast last July 4th with an approaching hurricane and felt very safe. Dont get me wrong, we were pushed quite a bit but no sway. My neighbor went with 2 friction units and wasnt happy with the results.

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.

Very pleased with this system, we tow longer distances and it works great. Would not want to go back to the old style friction type.

The folks at etrailer went way out of their way to contact the manufacturer to verify that this item would be compatible with my current equipment. Delivery was prompt and the product was as described. I have not had the opportunity to install it yet, or try it on the road,. but I am pleased so far.


Comments
After I nstalling the Reese DualCam system, my trailer was much easier to tow, but I discovered that my spring bars were way too light. Tongue weight was 900, spring bars were rated at 750. Once again, the folks at etrailer.com stepped up and helped me resolve the situation. Now Im towing my 25 Airstream effortlessly with no sway whatsoever, using the Reese DualCam with 1200 spring bars.

I have not installed this yet on my trailer but a friend of mine had them on his and it works really well. I went to this product because I have the old Reese dual cam and it lasted through for trailers and 40 years. I had one of the arms been on me. I might have done something wrong or could be metal fatigue in any rate I wanted these dual cam and I sway product.

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

I received excellent assistance when contacting etrailer by phone, trying to determine the correct piece-items needed for my new trailer, to replace the parts for my Reese Sway-Control/Wt Distribution system that I "lost" when selling my old trailer. they were polite, patient and helpful. This hardware set, as well as the Lift brackets and Dual-sway Cams were as heavy-duty as needed (as described) and will be putting them onto my new trailer as soon as I pick, it up.

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.

These were easy to install and work great with my existing weight distribution hitch. Pulled the camper 300 miles this week. The sway control worked great! No more white knuckle driving on the steering wheel and slowing down. I was able to maintain the speed limit and relax while towing!

Replacement arms are shorter than the original and I had to adjust the locking nuts almost to the end of the bar.

Comments
I wouldnt tow my trailer without the dual cam sway control installed. This product works exactly as advertised. When we got our 32 trailer all it had was the weight distribution hitch. After a trip to Myrtle Beach, which was two handed white knuckle holy terror for 7 hours each way, I knew I had to do something about the sway. I looked around at various systems available and decided on the dual cam setup as being most likely to provide the sway control I was looking for. After installing this system and getting it adjusted correctly this is key to proper operation, towing is a breeze now, sway is gone and I now have control of my trailer with confidence. We have gone on five trips this year of varying length, all with no sway issues due to large trucks or wind. Driving is so much more pleasurable now.

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.

We put another 10,000 on the Arctic Fox. Put about 3,000 on the cargo trailer, the system works just great on both trailers.It was exactly the right thing to do. Very happy with etrailer, highly recommend them.

  • Can the Reese Dual Cam RP26002 Work On Straight Spring Bars?
    To get the Reese Dual Cam Sway Control System # RP26002 to fit, your spring bars will need to have a curved end that the chains are attached to. Kind of hard to explain, so I did include a picture of the end of the bar this fits. With that being said though, the # RP26002 will not be able to work with your current spring bars. You may be able to replace your current spring bars with something like the # RP22225, but you will need to confirm the weight capacity needed before doing so.

  • Can Chains on Strait-Line Weight Distribution System Hang at an Angle
    You will need to have the chains on a Strait-Line weight distribution system straight up and down. There isn't a range of angles at which the chains can hang but I would not place the brackets off by more than 1/4 inch of where they are supposed to be. Otherwise the system will not be effective. If there is something on the trailer frame prohibiting proper placement of the brackets then I recommend using chain hangers # RP58305 which bolt to the sides of the frame.

    As long as your current spring bars have the 'hook' in the end of them, you can certainly upgrade to the Reese Dual Cam # RP26002.

    Yes, your current weight distribution system is compatible with the Reese Dual Cam Sway Control, # RP26002, because it has the cam-style spring bars (see photo).
