I'm out of touch as to what brands are out there now. Any good Trailer/Hitch place should be able to advise you.

Not many dealers will take the time to properly install a Dual Cam, so read the instructions and install it yourself. It is not hard, just takes some time.

Thanks for the tips. That gives me a place to start looking

We just purchased a 1977 Spartan 34' Travel Trailer, my wife and myself are new to RVing AND will be purchasing sway bars before our first trip.....after seeing that video

Can anyone recommend a name brand and or give some feedback from personal use?

Thanks so much!
Check out the 3P hitch before making a purchase. It is similar to a Hensley hitch. Both are the Rolls-Royce of trailer hitches. They are expensive, and well worth the money. It's said they make a TT pull nearly as stable as a 5er.

Skip, you're right; the safety chains are holding the truck in the air. I watched the video 3 times to be sure. My logitech keyboard has the ability to zoom in a page quickly, independently of any other controls, which made my old eyes see the details.
