Sway Control Recommendation for Vehicle with 1-1/4 inch Hitch

Question:

I am looking for the best sway control option for my 600 lb Square Trailer which will be towed on a Class I tow hitch. It has a 1 7/8inch ball hitch. I will be traveling in high winds and really am nervous about it so I am looking for the best and safest solution to the situation. Other than putting on an adaptor and changing hte hitch size on the trailer. what options do I have please?

We have friction sway control units that will work great to prevent the type of sway you are describing. For that the Curt part # 17200 would be a really great option. You'd use the bracket part # RP26005 installed on your hitch ball and then you'd be set. Friction sway control was designed to fight the exact type of sway you mentioned that is caused by wind from passing semis or just high winds in general.

Proper trailer loading makes the biggest difference in preventing sway as well. Move as much weight forward in the trailer as you can and make sure it's sitting as level as possible too.

Yep! Everything looks really good that you have in your cart currently. This will give you a higher capacity trailer hitch that fits your RAV4 and everything else you'd need to use friction sway control # 83660. The full list of the parts mentioned is down below at the product links.
