I never had any problems with the Reese while backing or turning tight. I have heard of a few that claimed to have problems with the bars dropping out of the stirrup. IF you install the hitch correctly per the Reese instructions, the bars will work properly. Some shops do not like to install a Dual Cam set up because it takes a bit more time to install and set properly.

If the shop gives you static or excuses, find another hitch shop.

Ken: What length/weight trailer did you pull with the Reese, do you still have it, did the Reese effectively eliminate sway? Would you have any other hitch recommendations? We can't justify the cost of a Pro Pride or Hensley.

We were pulling a 35' Avion travel trailer. Weight was about 9000#. It was a triple axle with torsion suspension.

No hitch will ELIMINATE sway, but will control sway. Theoretically a properly balance trailer will not sway. But we do not live in a perfect world, so you need something to control sway IF you should encounter it.

Thanks TXiceman for your input. Thanks IWILLRVTOO for the sale info for the Propide. I think will go with the Reese and work on balancing the trailer too...........but I'm not sure how to determine when the trailer is "balanced". I've never weighed a trailer, but I know where a scale is.......so if I weigh the trailer and are able to determine that I have 10 to 15% on the hitch, am I there?
