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 Weight Distribution RP26002 Review

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 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 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.

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! 382508

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


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.

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, 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


WOW!!!! This is a terrific product. Wont tow without it. The cams perform as advertised, stopping any sway. Last summer we took a trip pulling our 28 travel trailer thru 9 states ranging from flat to up in the mountains and we were completely satisfied. Would highly recommend this product.

Reese makes great towing products. Etrailer is a great way to buy these products. Easy website and loads of information and videos. Easy and free shipping and tracking with a follow up by George J. Definitely will return for all my trailer needs. 207077


The Reeses cam away controls work great. Makes the truck and trailer move as one unit. Do not feel vehicle when they pass. Very comfortable driving. Made a big difference bin handling and would recommend buying a very well made product.

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 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


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.

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

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

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 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.

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

  • How to eliminate Trailer Sway that Occurs at 55 to 65 MPH Even With Sway Control
  • Sway controls are designed to be used in situations where sway is a direct result of some type of road condition, like high winds or large vehicles passing. If you have sway with a trailer under normal towing conditions, sway control will most likely not correct the problem. The best defense against trailer sway in all conditions is proper trailer loading. You will need to check your trailer tongue weight and gross trailer weight and get the weight distributed properly.

  • How To Adjust Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control # RP26002
  • When making the final adjustment for the Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control, part # RP26002, the 2 nuts should be loose before making the left and right turns.

If you do, you can add the dual-cam sway control # RP26002 and it will work much better. However, if you do not have two notches, towing a trailer that is close to the maximum towing limit of your truck can cause significant sway on the highway even with a weight distribution system.

  • Will Reese Replacement 1,200 lb Round Spring Bars # RP58115 Work With Reese Hitch Head # RP58112
  • I contacted our representative at Reese, and he informed me that the Weight Distribution System you referenced, # 61241 should be the stamping on the metal and that it is Reese Replacement Head, part # RP58112. He informed me that the Reese Replacement 1,200 lb Round Spring Bars, part # RP58115, will work with your Weight Distribution Head and Reese Dual-Cam Sway Control, part # RP26002. The Reese Replacement 1,200 lb Round Spring Bars, part # RP58115, are designed for trailers that...

  • Troubleshooting Weight Distribution Hanger Bracket Installation on a V-Nose Trailer
  • The angle of the chains will present a problem, with the chains angled forward to such a degree it will put forward pressure on the spring bars and the weight distribution head. There is a solution though. You can use the Bolt On Weight Distribution Chain Hanger Kit, item # RP58305, in place of the Tip up chain hanger brackets. Once installed the chains are attached by raising the trailer tongue and rear of vehicle with the trailer jack. Tubular frames cannot be wider than 2-1/4 inches...

  • Sway Control Recommendation for a 7,500 Pound Premier Travel Trailer and Dodge Ram 1500
  • A couple of things you need to know about weight distribution. First if you ordered a Reese system with dual cams then it should come with dual-cam sway control. If it is a Strait-Line system, that is what they come with. Make sure that you are getting what you are paying for. Also make sure that the tongue weight capacity of the system is rated high enough. If the tongue weight is 800 or so pounds, then do not forget to add to that the weight of anything loaded behind the rear axle...

  • Is Sway Control Needed for Hauling Motorcycle on 6X12 Patriot Homesteader Enclosed Trailer
  • Take the loaded trailer out for a few test runs, including a short run on an interstate. Crosswinds and turbulence caused by passing tractor trailers will quickly tell you if trailer sway will be a problem for you. If sway is a problem, properly loading the trailer will go a long way to controlling trailer sway. Make sure the bike is as far forward of the trailer axle as you can get it, because more tongue weight helps eliminate trailer sway. If moving the bike forward is not feasible,...

  • Weight Capacity of Hitch for My 2008 Acura MDX
  • There are several models of hitch available for your 2008 Acura MDX (see link). I would recommend the Draw-Tite Class III Round Tube Receiver, item # 75614, which has a towing capacity of 4,000 pounds which is the highest rated hitch for your vehicle without a weight distribution system. There is not a Class IV hitch offered for the MDX. The highest hitch rating of 5,000 pounds, for your MDX, is acquired by using a weight distribution system which distributes the weight from the tongue...

  • Replacement Mounting Bolts for Reese Dual-Cam Sway Control
  • It sounds like you need the thread forming screws that attach the dual-cam sway control brackets to the trailer frame. Is this is correct then you will need set # 58437 for 8 or # 58459 for 2. You may also need the rivet nuts, # RP58507, for a set of 4. If you need a different part then I have linked the dual-cam instructions # RP26002 that shows the parts list on the first page.

  • Compatibility of Reese Strait-Line # RP66084 with Ford F250 Towing Travel Trailer with 800 lb TW
  • As long as the fully loaded and ready to tow tongue weight of the trailer (plus the weight of anything stored in the bed or cargo area of the tow vehicle behind the rear axle) is between 600 and 1200 lbs, the # RP66084 would be an excellent choice. The # RP66084 is indeed a combination of the 66542,54970 and 26002. The # 19286 trailer ball you referred to is compatible with the RP66084. The Strait-Line system is the best sway control system we offer. Instead of reacting to sway once...

  • Recommendation for Weight Distribution for a 2003 Chevy Blazer Towing a Two Horse Trailer
  • According to the research I have done, the 2003 Chevy Blazer had a max towing capacity of 5,700 pounds (2-door, 2 wheel drive LS model which had the highest). The trailer hitches we offer for the Blazer have a max towing capacity of 6,000 pounds when using weight distribution. I recommend checking the owners manual or contacting a Chevy dealer to determine the official towing capacity of your Blazer before towing. When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want one that has...

  • Trailer Hitch and Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2010 Acura MDX and 5,000 Pound Trailer
  • The CURT Trailer Hitch, # 13354, would be a good choice for your 2010 Acura MDX. When used with weight distribution, it has a tongue weight capacity of 500 pounds and a gross trailer weight capacity of 5,000 pounds. I have included a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video showing a typical installation. When choosing a weight distribution system, you will want to go with one that has a tongue weight capacity range that encompasses the tongue weight of the trailer...

  • Availability of Spring Bar Upgrades for Reese Weight Distribution System
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese and I have some information. Depending on the age of your system and what type of head came with it, you may be able to use the replacement spring bars, # RP66009. If your head is numbered 58167 or it looks like # RP58167 then you will be able to use the spring bars. If your head uses the spring bars that are held in with clips that are dropped in the head, then the spring bars will not fit. If you find that they will work, you will need to order 2...

  • 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...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation and Towing Capacity of a 2009 GMC Acadia
  • I did some research and when properly equipped the 2009 GMC Acadia can tow up to 5,200 pounds. Consult your vehicle owners manual to determine the capacities of your specific model. The capacity of the vehicle is static meaning that the maximum amount of weight the vehicle can tow cannot be increased by using weight distribution. If you were to tow at the maximum weight, assuming 5,200 pounds gross trailer weight, then you would want a system rated for 400 to 800 pounds tongue weight...

  • Weight Distribution System for a Fleetwood Evolution E1 Pop-Up Camper With A 2 X 8 Frame
  • I looked up your Fleetwood Evolution E1 pop up camper on the internet and it looks like you have a secondary lower frame located below the camper frame which gives you the 8 inch tall measurement. The Reese Weight Distribution, # 66557, is designed for light trailers with A-frame trailer frames that measure up to 6 inches tall. Most trailer frames will measure 2 to 3 inches wide and 3 to 5 inches tall. This system will not work on your Fleetwood camper with the 8 inch tall frame. I...

  • Can I put Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control On my 10000 GTW WD Hitch
  • If you have spring bars that are curved at the ends you would be able to use this Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control, part # RP26002, on your RV trailer that has a tongue weight of 500 lbs. If your spring bars do not have the curves you would need to replace the spring bars with spring bars with that do have curves. Since I am not sure how old your weight distribution system or if you have trunnion or round bars I would need to know the number off of the head of your weight...

  • Installation Problem with Dual Cam Sway Control on Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution
  • I spoke with my contact at Reese and he said they have not had any reported issues that the rivet nuts included with the Dual Cam sway control were too small. Just to be sure, you can check the knurls of the nut with a dial caliper to make sure they are slightly larger than 11/16 of an inch, or 0.6875 inches if you use a digital caliper. Your solution is the exact same solution that Reese recommends in this situation. Drill completely through the frame and run bolts to the opposite...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for a 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Towing a 29 Foot Travel Trailer
  • The best way to select a weight distribution system for towing your 29 foot travel trailer with your 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 truck is to weigh the trailer when it is fully loaded and ready to tow. When weighing the trailer you will need to determine the gross trailer weight and the gross tongue weight, and add the weight of anything you may need to load behind the rear axle in the bed of your Ram to the tongue weight. Any time the gross trailer weight is heavier than 50 percent of the trucks...

  • Will Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control Work With 2017 StarCraft Travel Trailer
  • The Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control # RP26002 are designed to work with Reese weight distribution spring bars. If you already have a Reese weight distribution system, the # RP26002 will work for you. If you do not have a weight distribution system already, I recommend choosing a system with built-in sway control for your 2017 StarCraft Satellite. The best way to determine what system will work for you is to know what your total tongue weight is. The total tongue weight...

  • 1967 Aljo Camper Trailer Swaying Dangerously Behind a 2000 Toyota Land Cruiser
  • First of all, you did the right thing by moving more weight forward. Now, you will want to get your trailer as level as possible. You could try letting your weight distribution chains out (loosen them) by 1 chain link, and see if that helps the situation. Then, examine your suspension on the trailer. Is everything in good shape? Nothing bent? You will want to rule out anything there as being a cause of the problem. If the problem still occurs, you might want to consider upgrading your sway...

  • Is Dual-Cam Sway Control Compatible With My Pro Series Weight Distribution System # 49570
  • I do have a solution for you, but the weight distribution system that you have, Pro Series Weight Distribution, part # 49570, will not work with a Dual Cam Sway Control System. The reason the Pro Series Weight Distribution # 49570 will not work is because the end of the bars that would attach to the dual-cam sway control system are straight and do not have a bend that is needed for a dual cam sway control system. There are 2 options you have to add a dual-cam sway control system to your...

  • Recommendations for Sway Control on 35 foot Rockwood Windjammer Travel Trailer
  • 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. The Dual-Cam is the most effective sway control on the market because it literally forces your trailer to stay inline with the tow vehicle unless you're making turns. When you make a turn, the trailer tongue the hook will unlock from the cam, allowing you to easily make the turn. Rather than resisting sway, the Dual-Cam system actively prevents it from occurring...
