Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Recommended Friction Sway Control System For Dual Friction Setup
  • For the dual friction you are looking for, I recommend adding the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit - Economy - by Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitch # 83660 to your hitch ball. This adjustable friction sway bar can be added using the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts - Class III and IV # RP26003 or the 1-1/4 inch ball mount bracket # RP26005. It is recommended to pull the cotter pin to disengage this bar when backing up. You can also expand this system by adding another...

  • Recommended Sway Control Option for Small Trailer
  • Sway control is beneficial in towing conditions such as crosswinds or a large truck passing; the system will allow you to have greater stability and control than otherwise. There is a sway control bar that could work for you, the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. This kit uses friction as control, as the cam system is for use in weight distribution systems. The Pro Series attaches to either side of your trailer tongue, and mounts with a sway-control bracket, either # RP26003...

  • Can Sway Bar Be Used Without Weight Distribution System?
  • Though Husky Center Line weight distribution systems have spring bars which are interchangeable, there are not Center Line spring bars that are available for a 300 lb tongue weight. Instead, you can use a sway bar setup like you asked about; the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. You would also need sway control bracket # RP26003 if your trailer had a Class III or Class IV, 2" x 2" ball mount or bracket # RP26005 for a Class II, 1-1/4" x 1-1/4" ball mount. I've attached links...

  • Adding a Friction Anti-Sway Bar to an RPod Trailer
  • What I recommend for your RPod trailer with the ball already attach to the side of the tongue is kit # 83660. This kit is very cost effective and will provide you with the sway control unit itself, the ball that will go on the vehicle side, and another plate that mounts to the trailer should you ever need to replace the one that is there. You will also need a sway control bracket # RP26003 for a 2 inch hitch receiver/ball mount or # RP26005 for a Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch/ball mount.

  • Dimensions of Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 1-1/4" Drawbars
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 1-1/4" Drawbars # RP26005 and took some measurements for you (see image). The hole for the hitch ball shank is 3/8 inch and the distance between the two tabs is 2-1/4 inches.

  • Can Friction Sway Control Be Added to a Class II 1-1/4 Inch Non-Weight Distribution Hitch
  • Proper trailer loading is your first-line defense against dangerous instability and sway. Heavy items should be placed on the floor in front of the axle. The load should be balanced side-to-side and secured to prevent shifting. Tongue weight should be about 10 to15 percent of gross trailer weight for most trailers. Too low a percentage of tongue weight can cause sway. Load the trailer heavier in front. You can add a friction sway control like the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit,...

  • Friction Sway Control Recommendation for a Ford Escape with Class II Hitch
  • Since you have a Class II hitch with a 1-1/4 inch opening you would want the sway control bracket part # RP26005 to use with your current ball mount so that you could install and use the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Unit part # 83660. This sway control unit work would work on a trailer that weighs 3,000 lbs.

  • Which Side Should Friction Sway Control Bar Be Installed On
  • Typically, you want to mount the sway control bar, like the Curt Friction Sway Control # 17200 that you referenced, on the passenger side of the trailer. This is so that if any maintenance needs to be performed on the side of the road, it can be done safely, with you on the other side of the trailer from the traffic. The Curt Friction Sway Control # 17200 does come with a weld-on plate to install the sway control ball. However, if you do not want to weld the bracket to a ball mount,...

  • Recommended Sway Control For Trailer Without Weight Distribution System Installed
  • Typically, when a statement like shank not included is mentioned it is pertaining to a weight distribution system. Since you said you do not have a WD system and only want to install sway control it would not be needed. If you choose to install a sway control unit like the Curt Friction Sway Control, part # 17200 without a weight distribution system installed you will need a bracket that attaches to your ball mount. If you have a 2 inch drawbar I recommend part # RP26003, and for a...

  • Are Additional Parts Needed to Install a CURT Friction Sway Control Arm
  • You will need a platform to attach the ball to the vehicle side for the CURT Friction Style Sway Control System, # 17200. It does come with a weld-on platform but you can also use Sway-Control Bracket, # RP26003, for 2 inch ball mounts or # RP26005, for 1-1/4 inch ball mounts. To use the weld-on platform that comes with it, you would need to weld it to the side of the ball platform on a ball mount. It will need to be positioned so that the center of the ball hole on the ball mount is...

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendations for a 6,000 Pound Pace Trailer
  • When choosing a weight distribution and sway control system, you will want to install one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses your trailer tongue weight. Tongue weight should be between 10 and 15 percent of the gross trailer weight, or in your case, 600 to 900 pounds. With this is mind, I recommend a system with a range of 600 to 1,200 pounds like the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System with Sway Control, # RP66088. This system comes with built in dual-cam sway...

  • Replacement Wheels for a 2003 Coleman Utah Pop Up Trailer
  • Replacing the rims with larger ones will not necessarily decrease sway. If you're looking to reduce sway you may interested in the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660. For brackets you'll need either # RP26005 if you have 1-1/4 inch ball mount or # RP26003 if you have a 2 inch ball mount. You currently have 13 inch rims. The reason your measuring is off is probably because you're measuring the overall diameter. A wheel is actually measured from where the bead of the tire...

  • Sway Control Only for an R-Pod 172 Trailer
  • 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. But If turning while backing up or on uneven terrain you would want to disengage the unit to avoid damaging it. So a good rule is just to disconnect it. You will not have to disconnect the trailer and taking it off is quick and easy. Just release the tension then pull the pin on the trailer end bracket holding the bar on. Then pull it off. This...

  • Can Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 Be Installed on Driver's Side of Trailer
  • Thank you for your recent purchases. The Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit # 83660 can be installed on the driver's side of your trailer since its internal friction arm can be removed and reinserted upside down, however the Sway Control Tab # RP26005 cannot be inverted to the bottom side of your ball mount. Instead you'll need to use part # 3442 which is a weld-on part that can be attached to the left side of your ball mount. Part # D320 shows an example of how such a combination...

  • Can Weight Distribution be Used with 1-1/4 Inch Trailer Hitch on 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan
  • If your 2014 Volkswagen Tiguan has a 1-1/4 inch trailer hitch receiver then you cannot use weight distribution because the hitch is not rated for it and cannot handle the stress. You would have to have a 2 inch trailer hitch receiver that is rated for weight distribution AND the vehicle must also be rated for it (consult vehicle owners manual). None of the 2 inch trailer hitches available for your Tiguan are rated for weight distribution. But you can use sway control with a 1-1/4...

  • Can Volkswagen Touareg Use Weight Distribution When Towing
  • You will need to check your owners manual to see what the trailer towing capacity is for your Touareg. Many times the construction of a vehicle will restrict the amount of weight the vehicle can tow. I looked at a 2010 Touareg and the trailer hitch we have that is designed for the 2010 is the Curt Trailer Hitch, part # 13220. This is a Class lll hitch and it has a 2 inch receiver opening. A technical note states that you cannot use weight distribution with this hitch. You will want...

  • 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 Reese Weight Distribution System Be Used On Pop-Up Camper With C-Channel Trailer Frame
  • Based on the weight of your 2004 Toyota Sienna at approximately 5,700 lbs, and the weight of your 2004 StarCraft 2406 pop-up camper at about 1,800 lbs it may not be necessary to use a weight distribution system. Typically a weight distribution system is not needed unless the trailer weighs over 50 percent of the towing vehicle weight. You will want to check with the trailer manufacturer to see if a weight distribution system can be used with your camper. If the reason you are wanting...

  • Availability of Friction Sway Control Bracket for a Hitch Ball with 1-1/4-Inch Shank Diameter
  • Reese offers two sway control brackets, part # RP26003 that fits over a 2-inch ball mount and part # RP26005 that fits on a 1-1/4-inch Class II ball mount. Neither of these has a 1-1/4-inch diameter hitch ball hole. Part # RP26003 has a 1-inch ball hole and part # RP26005 has a 3/4-inch ball hole. The reason the hitch ball holes in these items are these sizes and not the larger 1-1/4-inch diameter you're asking about is that the friction type sway control devices that are used with these,...

  • Best Sway Control for a 2005 Honda Pilot that Cannot Use Weight Distribution
  • Honda is one company that does say not to use weight distribution on certain models and certain years of those models. It has more to do with the uni-body frame not being able to handle the stress related to the use of weight distribution. Sway control on the other hand should not be a problem. For sway control only I recommend Pro Series friction sway bar # 83660. It is a good, economical option when sway control is needed. The only other thing you will need is a bracket that mounts...

For a replacement Sway Control Hitch Ball you can use part # RP58060 which has a ball diameter of 1-1/4 inches and a shank diameter of 5/8 inches.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Reciever And Sway Control For 2011 Toyota Sienna
  • I have some options for you, however the only way to use your weight distribution system would be to upgrade your receiver hitch. I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2", # 75237. This hitch will have a weight rating of up to 675 lbs for tongue weight and a gross trailer weight of 4500 lbs or 5000 lbs with weight distribution. This will give you the 2 inch receiver that will give you many options for bike carriers or cargo carriers as well as will fit...

  • Should Weight Distribution and/or Sway Control Be Used on a 1,000lb Little Guy TAG Trailer
  • The trailer is so light that weight distribution would not be needed but adding a sway control bar wouldn't hurt and would add stability and peace of mind for sure. You won't really know if weight distribution will be required until you tow the trailer loaded. If it then ends up weighing at least 50 percent of the vehicle weight (which based on the numbers isn't even close) or causes the rear end of the tow vehicle to sag then weight distribution is a good idea. For just sway control...

  • Recommended Anti-Sway for a 2007 Lexus RX350 and a Lance 1575 Trailer 3,500lb Loaded
  • Sounds like your vehicle is only having the sway issue and not any squatting or trouble steering the main reasons we would typically recommend a weigh distribution hitch for. This is why I would recommend you try a Friction Sway Control Kit like # 83660 for your setup. You will have to disengage this sway bar before backing up the trailer. To attach this to your vehicle you will need a ball mount adapter. The correct adapter for a 2 inch ball mount is # RP26003, if you happen to have...

To make this system work with your hitch ball, I recommend the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 2" Ball Mounts - Class III and IV # RP26003 or the Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 1-1/4" Drawbars - Class II...

I attached a link to a page that has all of the Class II ball mounts we offer. Using the above mentioned parts would work well with your Curt Hitch part # C12091.

  • Weight Distribution and Sway Control Recommendations for a 2004 Ford Explorer

The Draw-Tite Trailer Hitch, # 75132, will fit under the factory 1-1/4 inch hitch that you have on your 2004 Ford Explorer. With this hitch installed, you can add weight distribution provided that the vehicle owners manual allows the use of weight distribution as well. If you can go this route, you would the need a weight distribution...

The Reese Sway-Control Bracket for 1-1/4" Drawbars - Class II # RP26005 is intended for use only on the passenger side and only in the drop position. In your case, I recommend the Sway Control Tab (Weld On) # 3442 which can be used in the rise position because it is welded directly to your ball mount. There is not an easy adapter for your...
