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!! 111702


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.

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


Comments

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 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

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


Comments

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


Comments

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 etrailer.com 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


Comments

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

FAIRLY EASY TO INSTALL AND ADJUST. TOOK ABOUT 1 1/2/HOURS. SUGGEST YOU USE COBALT BITS FOR DRILLING. ALSO NEEDED WASHERS BECAUSE RADIUS OF THE BRACKET WAS DIFFERENT THAN THE FRAME. BRACKET SHOULD SIT FLUSH ON THE BOTTOM FRAME. TOOK A TRIP AND FOUND NO SWAYING WHEN TRUCKS PASSED BY! NEED MUCH LESS OF ORIGINAL CHAIN, SO MAKE SURE YOU ADJUST LINKS SO THAT FRONT WHEEL WELL HEIGHT IS THE SAME AS BEFORE. 171070

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 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

I have a 2014 Premier Bullet 31 feet long about 7,000lbs. I have Reese weight distribution and had a friction sway control. Have a huge problem with sway. I now purchased a new high performance control. This still did not help. I drove 35mph to keep the rig on the road. I don't know the next step. Etrailer gave me great service though I still have a problem. 138508

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

Do you have a question about this Weight Distribution?


  • What is the Difference Between the Draw-Tite and Reese Versions of Dual Cam Sway Control
  • The Reese and Draw-Tite products are manufactured by the same parent company, this means that the # 26102 and # 26002, Dual Cam Sway Control systems are the same, but there is a difference in the generations of the systems. The older systems had Hanger Brackets that were straight like part # 58192, 2nd generation systems were re-engineered and had curved hanger brackets like you see on part # RP26002, that you referenced. Finally, there are now 3rd generation systems that have gone back...

  • Differences Between Friction Based Sway Control and Dual Cam System For a Trail-Bay Travel Trailer
  • The biggest difference between an Equal-I-Zer friction style sway control and a system like a Reese Dual Cam High-Performance Sway Control # RP26002 is that the friction style is passive and the dual cam is active. What is meant by that is that the friction style does not do anything to prevent sway, it only acts minimize it once it has already started, which for some people it will work. However, the dual cam system works to prevent sway before it begins. This system will proactively...

  • Does Reese Dual-Cam Sway Control Work Better than Blue Ox Sway Control
  • Yes, it is my experience that they dual-cam sway control works much better than the Blue Ox systems. I recently have been riding in trucks towing trailers, one with the Blue Ox and one with a Reese system with the dual-cam sway control. The Blue Ox system worked but not nearly as well as the Strait-Line systems with the dual-cam sway control. For a Reese Strait-Line system that is rated for 800 to 1500 pounds tongue weight use # RP66130. the dual-cam sway control alone cannot be used...

  • Which is Better, Friction or Dual-Cam Sway Control
  • If given the choice I would always choose dual-cam sway control over friction because dual-cam system are proactive, stopping sway before it starts. Friction systems are reactive and work to stop sway after it has already started. To use dual-cam sway control your spring bars will have to have the hook ends, like bar # RP58115. If your bars do not have the hook ends you would either need to replace the bars or go with a friction sway control system using # 83660. If you wanted to...

First: I attest under penalty of RV hell that this is not a paid endorsement of either the product or etrailer...lol Word to the wise. Before we installed this product, we installed an electric tongue jack and a cordless impact drill for $70 from Harbor Freight. Both of these helped the quality and efficiency of the install of this system...it would have been a lot more work cranking up and down on a manual jack and then also cranking up and down to fine tune the weight distribution system. Now, on to the review: This product was easy to install and has almost totally negated the visible swag on the rear suspension of our tow vehicle. I was anticipating having to purchase E-rated tires and air bag suspension for a 1/2 ton pickup. This equalizer works well enough that the tow vehicle looks fine. I realize this is the intent of the product...but have to say that it probably saved over $1000 in further modifications. I must also really brag on your installation video. We were not certain about installing it ourselves...but with the video combined with the great instructions, it was easier than we ever thought would be possible(this also saved us at least $150 on installation costs for what would have been an inferior product). I considered putting the pics of the trailer hooked up without the system, but am afraid I would be laughed off the internet for what could have passed for an episode of "Sanford and Son". Trust me, it made a big difference. I'm inspired enough from this install to try and install a brake system for the same trailer. Looks to be a great video for it as well. We purchased it from etrailer and combined it with a wiring harness to fit my exact make/model of vehicle and I'm hoping it will be as good of an experience as the sway control system. Great job etrailer and kudos to your video crew(s)! 213179


Comments

Product is still working great. In fact, we moved up to a one ton vehicle and had to transfer it. Obviously the height is different, so we used the same video for the install to adjust it to the new vehicle. Works great!

This is the first time I have ever done any review about anything but I felt compelled to let everyone know about etrailer.com. First thing was the easy web site navigation and the help looking at my towing needs. Im a first time travel trailer owner. After finding my proper hitch and ordering it, it arrived 3 days later from UPS but the package was broken open and 3 parts were missing. I called etrailer.com and explained the problem and let them know I had a group camping trip planned in 7 days. They sprang into action and started the claim with UPS. I watched the tracking on line through their web site but it never left e trailer so I called on Monday and talked with another customer rep and explained my situation about leaving on Wed. with the group. She looked into it and said it was e trailers fault that somehow it didn't get shipped but she would get it out ASAP. This was Monday around 3 pm. By 8 pm I received an e-mail with a order number saying it was being shipped next day so I would have time to install it and make the trip on Wed. I have never been so impressed with a companies customer service in my life. A big THANK YOU to Chelsey, George and Im sorry I don't remember the last gals name but you did give me your desk phone number and said to call direct to your desk if I had any more problems. As for the product I haven't used it yet but its built with solid steel and I cant imagine it not working but if it doesn't I know e trailer will take care of me. Thank you again etrailer.com !!! 421445

Etrailer does it again. Best price on the Internet and shipped in 2 business days. The curt hitch system was as good as promised and the videos included on the product page was a big help. Have a hand truck or a friend ready when deliveried this thing is a handful to move. Will buy from etrailer and curt again. 207861


Comments

Thanks for reaching out to me. I have used the weight distribution hitch many times over the last year. One thing i was surprised with is the lake of durability in the paint on the load arms. I re-read the instructions and it says they need to be well greased but thats not easiest things to do with exposed metal components nor is it fun to take grease covered load bars off once I reach camp. Having that been said the greasing i think is not necessarily a Curt problem but something I noticed. Overall I think it was well worth the money and would buy again in a second. Thanks again for reaching out to me.

This isn't necessarily a review of the product, more of etrailer.com poor packaging/shipping. Anyhow, it looked the the item was returned but there were a bunch of 6- inch holes in the box when it was delivered. etrailer had placed my brake controller and harness in the box with the TruTrack and the harness must have fallen out because it never made it here. Neither did one of the brackets to connect the bars to my trailer. Of course I didn't realize this until I was picking up my trailer. So my choice was to buy a whole new system from the Trailer dealer or scavenge mismatched parts from their garage. I scavenged and found a random set that work for weight distributing but not so much for sway control because there is too much space for the bars to provide tension. The product seems great but the etrailer experience is a fail due to their poor shipping and handling. 407082

I like this little weight distribution system. I bought it mostly for the anti-sway features but the weight distribution system works well. I pull a 7 x 14 enclosed tandem axle trailer loaded with two motorcycles, all my camping gear, bicycles, motorcycle clothing, tools, canoe, motor etc. I pulled the load from Utah to Montana and back and didn't even know the trailer was back there. I'm very pleased and the price was $500 less than a local distributor wanted for a similar system. As always, etrailer service was outstanding. I'll try to post photos later. 216240

Im still very pleased. I did find a way to dent my trailer by turning too tight but thats not the fault of the equipment. Everything Ive purchased from E trailer has worked perfectly.

I've owned this weight distribution hitch for a year now. Hauling travel trailers and 5th wheels professionally, I needed a unit that was dependable and one that would hold up to the rigorous demands of a professional hauler. Although the shipping box took a real beating during transit, miraculously everything was there. I would highly recommend this unit to all who pull a travel trailer to their vacation destinations. This unit will give you a stress free experience with no white knuckles while passing the big rigs on the highway. The trailer will follow a straight, true track behind you. Enjoy your driving experience. 312360

eTrailer Order Processing - excellent! Very capable staff. Curt Product - rugged looking, good instructions, but they need some supervision in the powder coating dep't, acts more like spray lacquer than powder. Finish was chipping off spring bars when I removed them from the carton; after 2-3 test fits, finish was flaking off the the bars and blistering off the tow head after height adjustments from theguide washer pressure. I realize this won't affect product performance, but a disappointment. Welds look great. 206940

Ordered online and then made a second order. Called first thing in a.m. to have orders combined in order to save on shipping. Customer service was excellent. 3 to 5 Day Shipping arrived in 4 business days. Curt Tru Track works great. I cant believe the difference in towing. Smooth and straight as an arrow! The product was easy to put together and instructions were simple. I started putting it on at dusk and finished by the light of streetlight with no big issues. Easy to adjust! I installed this unit after talking to some professionals. They said going up on tongue weight is not a big issue. The Tru Track is rated for 1000lb GTW. My application is on Jeep Grand Cherokee with 500 lb tongue weight capacity and 5000lb Gross Tow Capacity. Havent tried all competitor brands but very happy with the product! 383101

I have had this weight distribution setup on my 2005 Silverado 2500HD and 19 foot toy hauler for a year. Trailer wait loaded is about 7,000lbs. This product has been amazing and works every time. Once the setup of height and a ball angle were done the install/removal is easy. Backing up (even at pretty serious angles) has never been a problem but I now remove the bars before I backup whenever possible just to be safe. The ball mount is very heavy duty and came preassembled but has required grease (zerk fittings). The sway control in heavy winds has been amazing also. I highly recommend it. **Tip - install the bars while you have the trailer on the tongue jack right after you secure the ball and the bars go on without the tool or any pressure. Then when you lower the tongue jack and put the weigh/squat on the truck the bars will become loaded as they level out** 355795

I purchased this a year ago. It is a great product but the hitch assembly is heavy so be careful. I use a 4 wheel dolly to bring it out to the truck when I am going to put the hitch on just to save my back. It is a solid piece of steel. It took some time to adjust the hitch to right height so the trailer and truck is level but after that it is fine. Follow the directions by periodically tightening the bolts especially the brackets on the trailer. The only thing I would warn about is when backing and you have to turn sharp. Take the rods off as I had the rig turn while backing and the rod came partially off the bracket on the trailer. When I straighten up I bent the little "L" bracket. But since then I have not had any issues. The company, Curt, was great. They sent me a new set of "L" brackets at no cost. 406445

Did a fair amount of research for towing with a Weight Distribution Hitch. Chose the Curt C17500 as best for my needs. Contacted etrailer since I needed this in a very short time. Talked with Susie and she was so helpful and professional. She really took the time to understand my needs and was clearly the person who took the personal lead to ensure I got the hitch on time. She confirmed the hitch would work for my truck/boat application including Surge brakes, etc. Time was of the essence and I had to decide between getting this locally at much higher price or taking a delivery risk with etrailer. In fact even before placing the order Susie had delivery pegged to an afternoon and was spot on when it arrived. I will certainly look to etrailer for my future needs. Thanks for a great experience etrailer and Susie. 245586

First off etrailer.com had a ton of information and the website was able to answer all my questions. My weight distribution hitch showed up fast and as described. Hitch was easy to install and worked exactly as described. I tow a 4000 pound camper with approx 400-800lbs of tongue weight depending on bed and camper load. I have a 2013 Toyota Tacoma. This hitch is easy to adjust and leveled the load. This hitch also allows backing up and that was a major selling point. 191299

Prior to using this product I only had a WD system for my 30' Coleman. My initial 3 hr drive home seemed to have little wind yet my trailer was all over the place. A week after installing this system I drove from central KS to Pikes Peak. For most of that drive I had a 17-21 mph head/cross wind. I fullly expected to still have sway issues from the wind as I was warned ahead of time about that. This system was able to keep the amount of effort needed on my part less than that initial drive. Once I was out of the wind I could barely tell the trailer was causing me any sway at all. I would say this did an excellent job at preventing the sway all together. 385095

I had a unique issue in that my new trailer has a five foot "V" nose which extends well into the tongue of the trailer. This did not allow for conventional sway/weight bars to be used. After much research I decided upon these bars as a solution and upon arrival installed the unit following the instructions. Modifications needed to be made to the floor of the "V" nose of the trailer but as a solution for a unique issue this product was exceptional. Etrailer was also more than I could have expected with quick shipment, all parts present, and reasonable cost. And the free shipping was the icing on the cake. Thank you/ Trygve Stout 284265

Etrailer once again delivered the great service that brought me back, arrived within two days. The hitch set up was very easy to set up to the trailer. I had a Equalizer brand hitch for my 30 foot travel trailer and sold it with the trailer, so I wanted a "all in one" set up for this car trailer. This set up is less than 1/2 the cost of the equalizer and it was easier to set up. So far, towed approx 2500 miles with it and to date, it does a great job. This trailer used to have a reese chain and snap up bar set up, HUGE difference moving to this set up. I have already recommended this to a few friends. 241848

Outstanding service from eTrailer.com as usual. The product I purchased from eTrailer.com was priced a little higher than the same product at another distributor. No problem, eTrailer matched the lower price plus a little more. The refund was completed within a short period of time. While I will not be using this product right away, I am familiar with how it works and fully expect it to be as advertised. It is always a pleasant experience when buying from eTrailer.com. I always look on their website first when looking for products related to my truck and other towing needs. Thank you Katie! 323441

This hitch is considerably more substantial than any that I have used in the past. The bars have a more positive action and there is none of the popping chain sounds on tight turns and backing up. It is a little more labor intensive to hook up than the old chain type in that the bar is heavier to lift. Next time I will lift the hitch higher to start. That will solve the problem. Be sure to put a 6X6 under the jack foot so you can take the weight off. The jack was fully extended and teh bars were pretty heavy. I am sure I will be happy with this hitch. 339059

The box arrived on perfect condition and in 3 days. Looks like etrailer reinforces the box possibly? Either way everything was there and no issues. Have not installed or towed with the hitch yet but will be in a few weeks. Quality of the hitch is pretty amazing, coating is solid. Hope to have a fully review soon on our 2017 F150 and 37 ft travel trailer. 384546

I'm pleased with the product. Quality is excellent and it works well. My trailer is aluminum and has very deep beams (frame rails) on which the bar brackets are installed. So, I had to determine the appropriate setting for the brackets and weld them together. That took the adjustable feature of the bracket away. However, since the welded brackets are properly set for my vehicle, it works well. To maintain the adjustable feature of the brackets, they would need to be longer to accommodate the deep frame rails. 259098

My hitch has been working well. Have towed from Iowa to Chicago and also to southern Texas with absolutely no issues. Very nice to have the anti-sway feature detents built right in. No regrets on my purchase. etrailer staff has been great.

Product arrived quickly. Very heavy built hitch. Solid cast steel, no hollow tubes. Very good construction. Easy to install, but follow dirctions and ensure you have level pad to take measurements and level your trailer also. Tools needed listed on the outside of box would be nice as I took all the tools I thought I needed up to 15/16" and once assembling found that I needed 1 1/8" and 1-1/16" to tighten the 2 bolts to mount the head to the reciever adapter. Takes about 2 hours to assemble and adjust. 291647

Love this thing! Got to reading about towing liability after an accident. I bought this to take out my liability because Toyota requires a WDH after 5K. It has built in sway control. Towing my Jeep JKU to go off road is no longer a white knuckle tow. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! 302028

I have used this weight distribution system now for a year and it works fantastic. My truck sits level and I get a lot less bouncing around when hitting bumps or a rough road. As far as the sway control, I'm assuming its working because I don't have any sway. Hooking up to the trailer is pretty easy. The hardest part is picking up the hitch and sliding it into the receiver, its pretty heavy, but it needs to be heavy duty. I'm very happy with the product. 308221

The anti sway properties of this unit are out standing. Before I installed it I would get blown all over the road every time I was passed by any large vehicle. After the easy install all I would get was a little push before the unit regained control. My only complaint is the packaging. When UPS delivered it the box was torn open exposing the contents. Fortunately the components were individually wrapped so nothing was missing or damaged. 301871

Look good and very sturdy feeling. Great price on thus product. Dealer wanted to charge over $500 for similar WD hitch. This one look like it would be easier to make adjustment and can't beat the price. I love doing business with etrailer.com. Every time I order something, it was delivered on time or earlier than expected. Never have any problem with anything I ordered from etrailer, also very easy installation. 312635

Some clip adaptations to my trailer didn't quite yield the load leveling I was hoping for, but it definitely makes a difference. I added air lifts to my Tahoe as well and between the two, i am good. I only wish i had a source for the little L shaped clips that hold bar in place horizontally. Those are the only "spare" parts i could use.... Overall I am happy with this, glad I bought it.... 359515

Hitch works great. Make sure that you follow the instructions and set the brackets in the right place. Even a inch to far back will cause it to bind and fall of going around a tight corner. I learned this the hard way. My fault not the hitches fault. Other then that the hitch is noisy but I wouldn't expect it to be quiet with that much metal on metal contact. A little grease on the bars helps. 332674

I pulled a 25' travel trailer weighing 5500lbs loaded with a Tundra and 4 occupants for the first time. The hitch worked great!! The first time requires some time to setup correctly but thereafter it is quick and easy. No problem with tight turns in my cul-de-sac or the RV park. The reinforced box arrived from UPS on-time and complete. Great hitch, I wouldn't tow without it!!! 256850

Curt did an excellent job on this with having the sway assist built into the hitch and allows the arms to move left and right when backing up and making turns allowing them to disengage from there detent so that it doesn't put so much stress on the trailers hitch and arms themselves. Etrailer has excellent customer service and shipping times are good to. 285419

This is more of a customer service review than a product review. My original order of the Curt 17500 hitch arrived damaged (by UPS) and missing the trunion bars.

This is an outstanding hitch and the assembly and setup instructions were spot on! It also helps to view the CURT U-Tube video available on line. This hitch is incredible sturdy, easy to install and its multi-settings allowed me to get my trailer perfectly level. I like the fact that I do not need a sway bar as this hitch does it all! 289195

This hitch allows me to drive without the bounce you normally have after hitting a bump in the road.

I had to sell the hitch to someone else. Never used it, The bars were to short. The propane tank mounts and electrical prevented me placing the bar supports close enough to the head. I think the grease sealed Trunnions are good but the hitch is heavy and difficult for me to lift in place. 303130

Curt's C17500 is an awesome weight distribution/sway control hitch. It is a little beefier than I needed for my 4400 lb. travel trailer but performed extremely well and did not make any noise in tow like my buddy"s hitch. Great product and made very well. Etrailer.com had the best price, too. 216759

On the Curt TruTrack system # C17500 for example the L bracket that secures the bar to the frame bracket can be tightened or loosened to adjust the amount of sway control tension on the bars.

Both are covered by a 10 year warranty. The Curt TruTrack includes the 2-5/16 inch trailer ball, while the Fastway system would use a # EQ91-00-6100 ball that's sold separately.

  • The Curt TruTrack and Fastway weight distribution systems are very similar. Fastway is the economy brand of Equal-I-zer so it has that going for it. Otherwise both offer built in sway control but the Curt system has sway control in the head and at the bars whereas the Fastway system is just at the bars. Based on this I would go with the Curt system # C17500.
