Hello All,

We are upgrading our TT from a 29' to a 32' that is about 1800# heavier. Currently I have a Reese friction type anti-sway bar and it works just fine for the current TT (I actually only use it occasionally on long trips or in high wind). Since the new TT is longer and heavier I have been wondering if the Dual Cam (The HP is what I am looking at) would make a big difference. The Hensley(or Pullrite) is to expensive for me so that is not an option.

Pretty much I was wondering if the dual cam setup was a significant improvement over the old friction style or if I should just keep and use the friction type I have now.

Thanks...

I think the results are about the same. If you don't need WD, I'd keep what you have.

I installed the Dual Cam HP on our TT about 2 years ago. Not difficult at all. It took me about 1.5 hours, measuring everything multiple times. It is easier to hook up and really seems to do a much better job at sway control than the old friction plate.

Just follow the instructions that come with the set-up.

I agree with Frank the hook up couldnt be easier. its like a WD without FC.

you just get it all adjusted at time of install after that each time you hook you just put the bars on and chain them where you always do.

Thanks for the info, I think I will go with the dual cam system. I am going to have the dealer install it as part of the package with my new camper...

You will find that a properly adjusted Reese Dual Cam hitch will be a BIG improvement over the old sway brake model used on your old TT.

Well, we picked up up the new camper and what a difference with the dual cam setup. I am towing a unit that weighs 2000# more and 4 feet longer than my old unit with half the sway. I don't even realize now when trucks are passing me. I will never go back to the old friction style again...
