Draw-Tite, Reese (Part Number:26102)
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.
Over fifty years and millions of trailer hitches later, our 500 dedicated employees put the same care and patience into every hitch we build today as Bill Whichello did fifty years ago. We also make use of technologically advanced equipment and the most experience in the industry to meet the challenges of tow vehicles.
The basis of our continued success is that our trailer hitches are custom fit for each vehicle. This makes them easy to install. A dealer simply bolts one piece, welded trailer hitches to the vehicle frame. Most installations take 30 minutes or less.
Our trailer hitches are covered by a Nationwide/lifetime limited warranty. We have over 10,000 dealers throughout North America. So wherever you live or travel, there is always a knowledgeable and helpful Draw-Tite dealer nearby. This is especially important when you consider nearly 100% of our consumers use their trailer hitch to tow outside of their local area.
Founded in 1952 by TJ Reese, Reese pioneered the technology that has set the standard for today's advanced towing systems designs. Because of our unwavering commitment to quality, safety and innovation, Reese Products has earned the reputation as the premier manufacturer of hitching systems in North America.
Our culture at Reese is to relentlessly push the envelope in our quest for the most innovative, highest performance and unparalleled quality products. Employing leading edge engineering tools like computer aided design, fatigue testing, finite element analysis and advanced quality planning, we constantly explore new ways to take our products to ever higher levels in quality and performance. Our mission at Reese is to build the most valued, reliable, durable and easy to install products in the marketplace.
Our first products came off the assembly line in 1952 and were overwhelmingly received by outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. Reese Products rapidly became known as North America's most recognized brand in the marketplace.
By 1968, Reese's commitment to quality products was so highly regarded that the RV Industry asked Reese to develop tests to gather data related to trailer towing loads. That data later became the industry-testing standard called V5 and SAEJ684. Reese pioneered the technology now used by all leading hitch manufacturers.
Over the years Reese has introduced numerous revolutionary and innovative products to the towing market. These product "firsts" include the aluminum trailer stabilizer jack, custom designed bolt on receiver style trailer hitches, adjustable trunnion style weight distributing systems, dual cam sway controls, removable fifth wheel hitches, sliding fifth wheel hitches, class IV trailer hitches and "install it yourself" multi fit trailer hitches.
At Reese we take pride in discovering new products and technologies to enhance and improve the towing industry. We hope that our next fifty years will be as rewarding as our first fifty years.
