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.

Video Transcript for Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control Review

Today, we're going to be installing Reese Sway Control. Here, we've got our Sway Control arms installed with our entire weight distribution system. This Sway Control is going to help eliminate that sway from your trailer. This is going to make its safer to drive down the road, because you don't have to worry about that sway taking over the back end of your vehicle.The Sway Control arms can be added to any Reese weight distribution system that has trunnion styles with the curved arms, like you see here, as well as round bar styles that also have a cavity here for the sway arms. The Sway Control arms are going to be made of a high grade, durable steel with a black powder coat finish to protect against any rust and corrosion. Our sway arms here are adjustable in and out to get that appropriate length for your system that's installed on your trailer.

The arm here is going to be covered in a zinc plating to help resist against corrosion as well.Once you've got it parked on level ground and your trailer is level, you want to measure from the ground to the top of the ball. You want to record that measurement, because we're going to be using it later. Now, we're going to need to find the center of our ball and mark it on each side. We're going to go ahead and measure vertically first from the top of the ball to the bottom. We're going to mark that in the center, so that's going to be about, let's see, we've got two and a half so we'll mark that.

Then, we need to mark it this way as well. We're looking at about there for the center, so we've got our center mark lined out. We're going to do the same thing on the other side.We'll now make our marks for our anti-sway arms. We'll use the mark we made up here at the ball. We'll use your instructions for the specific type of trailer you've got to make the appropriate measurement from here to the center of the bolt here on your arm.

We'll go ahead and set that up on the bottom of our frame. Now that we've got our arm in the right spot, we're just going to make couple of marks so we know where it goes. We're going to repeat the same process on the other side.We'll now take the long bolt that comes in your kit. We're going to thread it into the backside. We're just going to have it threaded just enough so it's in there.

We'll raise it back up into position where we made our marks. We will thread that down until it contacts the frame. After it contacts the frame, we're going to put an additional quarter turn on that bolt. You don't want to overtighten it, so that's as far as you want to go. Now that we've got it all in place and marked out, we're going to mark the holes with a 7/16th drill bit. Same on the other side. Now, once you've got them both marked, you can drill those out.We can now remove the arm that's on there. You'll then enlarge both of those holes with an 11/16th drill bit. We can now take the inserts that come in our kit. We're going to slide it into the holes. Now, they should be pretty snug so you may have to tap them in, use a hammer. We're just going to use our adjustable wrench here just to tap them in. We can now put our arm back in place. We'll now place lock washers on our bolts and thread them into our rivets that we just placed in there. Then, we can tighten them down with a three quarter inch socket. Then, you want to snug your back bolt up again just like we did before, giving it a quarter turn after it's hit the frame. We can then go back and torque our bolts to the specifications found in our instructions.Now, here on the other side, we're going to perform the exact same procedures. To get your arms in, you're going to want to start with the bottom first. You're just going to angle it until it slides right in there. We'll now take the other end where our chain will attach here, and we're going to have to put these brackets onto our trailer. We're going to go ahead and pre-thread the long bolts with the square head into the backside here. We just want to get it until it's in there a few turns. It's just going to sit down on top of the frame of our trailer.We'll now make sure that, where our brackets are here, that when our arms are pulled up, the chains are close to vertical. Once you've got that set, you'll tighten down the adjustment screw here on the back until it hits the frame. Then, you'll want to go one additional quarter turn. We'll now take our arm here and we're going to place our chain up on it.Now, the more links you use, the more weight distribution you're going to get. It maybe too much, so we're just going to start with two links. We want to make sure it's even on each side, so we're going to hook two on this side. Then, we're going to hook two on the other side. If you're having a difficult time getting this pushed up, you can use the bar that comes with it. That'll make it easier to lift it in position. Then, we can put our lock pin through to hold it in place.After we rechecked our measurements at the front and rear to verify that it's as close to an unloaded ride height as possible, we can go ahead and take it back off. We we're just getting an idea of how many links we needed. Now, we need to hook up our sway. To do that, you'll remove the arm. We need to now take the chain link off of our arm, and we're going to install it into our cam assembly here that hooks to our anti-sway arms. We're going to install it just like we did onto our trunnion arms. We're going to slide our U-bolt through with our end chain linked on it. We're going to place those washers on it and reinstall the nuts, making sure that there's a few threads sticking through. Then, we're going to do this on the other side as well.We can now put our arms back in. We'll take our cam assembly that we made there, we're going to slide it onto our sway arms making sure that the nuts face outwards. Our arm is going to sit on top of this. It'll slide forward and hook on just like we did before. Now, you are going to need to add a couple of links due to the cam assembly to get the same adjustment that we once had. Put it back in place and put our pin back in. Now, we can recheck our ride height once again.Now that we've rechecked our measurements and made sure that they're very close to what it was when we had an unloaded vehicle, we can now adjust the length of our sway arms here. We're pretty close right now, but we need to bring it out just a little bit so that it's sitting in there properly. You will need to unhook this to unload it, so you can adjust the arm there. We're going to go ahead and do that now. We're going to unload it. We'll then take our arm, we'll loosen it up some to bring it out. We didn't need to come out much, so we'll just run this hand tight for now. We'll hook it back up and we'll recheck, want to make sure that this is, again, right up in the groove. It's not going to be until you have it loaded up, it's going to pull forward once we get it back loaded.Now that we've made our adjustment, we'll put it back, lower our trailer back down and recheck to make sure our arms are in the proper spot. Now that we're all set, to keep your weight distribution system working in tip-top shape, there are a few points you can keep lubricated. We want to use some oil here on the front of our trunnion. There's a little oil hole here in the top that you can use to put oil down it. We want to keep our rear points of our trunnions here lubricated as well. We're just going to be using some white lithium grease to spray up in there to keep it lubricated.That completes our installation of Reese's Sway Control.

Installed these on a 33 foot toy hauler that I tow with a 2012 Ram 1500. The combined gross wt. is around 13,000LBS. There is virtually no sway at speeds from 0 to 70 MPH. Excellent product. 349349

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

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! 585227

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. 345635

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. 408978

Installed these replacement parts. The diameter of the cam is a little smaller than originals, but they seem to work just as good. I went out and realigned the parts as suggested, and it wasn't nearly as hard as the first time. LOL Since the original larger size cams are no longer available I would recommend these. 575517

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

Replacement arms are shorter than the original and I had to adjust the locking nuts almost to the end of the bar. I talked to dealer later and was informed that these were the only bars currently made. They do work and I have not had a problem with them. Only have about 2000 miles at this time on them. 445491

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

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. 435754


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.

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 have used this dual cam system for a full camping season and I am very satisfied with the results. I tow a 23 ft travel trailer with a Chevrolet Colorado and it has greatly improved the elimination of sway, especially in windy conditions. Installation was very straightforward, with the setup and adjustment taking the most time. Once the initial adjustments have been completed, any further adjustments are unnecessary unless trailer load has been drastically changed. It is extremely important to note that this sway control system is not designed to correct improper loading of the travel trailer! Always ensure that you have sufficient tongue weight to prevent tail wagging the dog.... 739228

  • Replacement Cam Arms for Reese Strait Line System with Older Gold Arms
    There are some of the older gold arms available as replacement parts. I recommend the Replacement Cam Arm Assembly for Reese Dual Cam Classic - Gold # RP58460 for your current system if you need the replacement bracket the arm fits into. The difference between the gold and newer silver arms like # RP58435 according to my contact at Reese is just the color but the brackets are straight on the old system and have a bend on the newer system that changes that geometry a bit.

And since you are under the 1,200 pounds you should be good to go. However, you have to look at the total tongue weight of the set up to make sure a 1,200 pound system is enough.

  • Should Dual Cam Sway Control Cams be Greased at any Point
    I checked the installation instructions for the Reese Dual Cam Weight Distribution system and the instructions state that you should NOT use grease on the cams or arm. If you are having issues with noise a very light coating of a lubricant can be used on the part of the cam where the spring bar rides the cam. The only mention of a lubricant is that you can use it on the adjustment nut and cam arm so that the adjustment nut can be moved freely to the desired position.

  • How to Determine if Dual Cam Sway Control Can be Added to Reese Weight Distribution System
    If the spring bars of your Reese weight distribution system have curved ends like what you see in the attached picture you'd be able to upgrade the setup to include the Dual Cam sway control part # RP26002 that you mentioned. Adding sway control would be a great idea in your situation. Especially the dual cam style which works to fight sway before it starts.

  • Installing Dual-Cam With Friction Sway Control
    If you go with the Reese Dual-Cam, you will want to remove the friction sway unit. The Dual-Cam system is the top-of-the-line performing sway control system that will actually prevent trailer sway from beginning before it can start. The Dual-Cam system has been extremely well received and highly rated by our customers. You would gain no benefit from leaving the friction unit in place, and the unit might actually interfere with the brackets that mount the dual-cam to the trailer frame. Keep...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for Rpod 179 Travel Trailer
    To choose a weight distribution system, you'll need to first determine the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of your trailer. To that figure, add the weight of any gear stowed in the cargo area of your Grand Cherokee behind the rear axle. I've linked to an FAQ article that explains how to do this. These combined figures represent the Total Tongue Weight (TTW) of your set-up. The TTW of your trailer should fall as close as possible to the middle of the effective range of the weight...

  • Can Dual-Cam Sway Control be Added to a Draw-Tite Round Bar Weight Distribution System
    If your spring bars hang from chains and have the hook end like # RP58114 as an example, then you can add dual cam sway control, # RP26002. Drilling is required and there are no other dual-cam systems from the manufactures we carry that do not require drilling into the trailer frame for installation. I have linked a video and instructions for you. Since the system installs only on the trailer, switching between vehicles will not be a problem If the dual cam system is not going to work...

  • Replacement Arms for Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control # RP26002
    I spoke with my contact at Reese and yes, some wear is common on the arms of the Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control, # RP26002, because it is metal rubbing on metal to prevent sway. Replacement Cam Arms, # RP58435, are available should you choose to replace them.

  • Making Adjustments to Reese Dual-Cam Sway Control
    The nuts that are on the dual-cam sway control # RP26002 do not move by themselves. You will need to make adjustments by turning the nuts. This adjusts the cam arm length. You want the spring bar hook end to nestle onto the cams as shown in the included picture. Once the bars are in the right place in the cams then you tighten the dual-cam nuts as described in the instructions linked for you.

  • Can Weight Distribution Spring Bars be Hung from the 4th Chain Link or is the 5th Link Required
    Ideally, you will want to have 5 links in the chains on a weight distribution system that uses chains. In some special circumstances, in order for the spring bars to be level with the trailer frame, more or less links may be needed. In order to achieve 5 links, you will probably need to adjust the head angle to be more rearward, towards the trailer. You can find the procedure on how to make this adjustment in the instructions. I have included a link to some instructions as reference. Having...

  • Can Dual-Cam Sway Control be Added to an Older Reese Weight Distribution System
    You have a very old system there! You would not be able to add dual-cam sway control # RP26002 to this system. Dual-cam systems require the bars with the cam hook ends and will not work with tapered straight bars. The system would not be a # PS49902 because that is a newer system with round bars, not trunnion bars. If the head that holds the ball looks like # 58333 with those 2 smaller holes on the far left and right on top of the head then you can use 2 friction bar style units, #...

  • Weight Distribution System Recommendation for 2013 Ram 1500 Towing 8,500 lb Trailer
    As long as you are under the towing capacities for the vehicle the length of the trailer really won't be an issue. If you tow the trailer level, have proper weight distribution of the trailer's weight so that you have 10-15 percent of the total weight as tongue weight and then use a properly rated and set up weight distribution system you would be totally fine and safe. The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when...

  • Sway Control Recommendation for a Jayco Discovery Pop Up Camper Trailer
    In order to use the dual cam sway control, # RP26002, you would need to have a Reese weight distribution with the cam end on the spring bars like # RP66022 as an example. If you do not have this style or weight distribution then you may be able to add a friction sway bar like # 83660. You would then need a bracket (if you do not have a weight distribution head already that can accept this type of sway control). For Class III and IV ball mounts use # RP26003. For Class II ball mounts...

  • Can a Weight Distribution System be Used on 1998 Toyota 4Runner
    According to my research, the 1998 4Runner had a 5000 lb towing capacity. On some vehicles, adding a weight distribution system can add additional capacity to the hitch itself, but the tow rating of the vehicle itself will always be the final word. In other words, adding a weight distribution system to your 4Runner would not gain you any more towing capacity. Although I wold love to sell you a weight distribution system, I cannot recommend exceeding the manufacturers stated tow rating...

  • What Size Wrench is Needed to Tighten Adjustment Nuts on Reese Dual-Cam Sway Control

  • Can Dual Cam Sway Control Be Used on CURT Weight Distribution Systems
    The dual cam sway control system, part # RP26002, will not work with CURT weight distribution systems. CURT uses straight bars, where as dual cam sway control systems need bars with an integrated cam or hook shape at the end where the chain bolts. You can use a friction sway control system like part # 17200. It will add a small ball to your weight distribution head and a ball on the trailer frame. Using friction, the sway control arm will react to sway and begin to hold the trailer straight....

  • Do Spring Bars of Weight Distribution System Have to Be Lowered to Adjust Dual Cam Arms
    When adjusting the cam arms nuts of the Dual Cam Sway Control part # RP26002 that you referenced you will have to lower the spring bars per the install instructions for the kit. The spring bar tension would make turning the nuts too difficult so the bars have to be lowered.
