Dual Cam High Performance Sway Control

Dual Cam High Performance Sway Control. Used to reduce trailer sway and improve handling in adverse towing conditions.

This patented product is the premier method for controlling trailer sway. Unlike the friction sway control, this approach works to control sway from the start rather than just resisting sway once it's begun. And it works only when needed.

When towing in a straight line, the cams on either side of the trailers A-frame are locked in position. This essentially creates a "rigid" connection between tow vehicle and trailer and minimizes the effects of induced sway caused by high crosswinds or passing vehicles. Usually the cams ride in a detent, locked-in position, even on fairly sharp curves. However, when cornering maneuvers are required, the cams automatically slide out of their detent to permit full radius turns. Yet when the maneuver is short and abrupt, like that encountered in the event of a sudden swerve or a wheel dropping off the road, the cams seek a straight-line towing angle that helps the tow vehicle retain control.

The advantage of the Dual Cam system is its ability to forestall sway in addition to sway resistance. It works to hold down the start of swaying activity while at the same time allowing free and easy vehicle and trailer interaction. Another advantage of the Dual Cam system is that it's installed on the trailer and therefore doesn't require adjustment every time the towing vehicle and trailer are hooked up, unless hitch weight or tow vehicle loading are changed.

Research & LEARN

What is Sway Control?

Sway controls attach to the hitch arms and to the spring bars of the weight distribution system. The Sway Control unit dampens trailer sway that is caused by traffic and crosswinds. Many factors can contribute to trailer sway - the design of the trailer, the suspension, tire inflation pressures, configuration of the tow vehicle, towing speeds and hitch weight.

Types of Sway Control

Sway control can be either Passive or Active. Passive (or Friction) sway control is simple and uncomplicated, using friction to resist the pivotal movement of the trailer. It 'stiffens' the coupling between the tow vehicle and trailer.

Active sway control goes beyond resisting sway and actually works to correct it. The Dual Cam Sway Control system is an active sway control system that holds down the start of swaying while at the same time allowing free and easy vehicle and trailer interaction.
