Left side Sway control

May 21, 2012
If your travel trailer is over 24' long you may want to consider friction sway control on both sides to compensate for the added length and weight. I have a 35 foot trailer. I originally started out with a Husky weight distribution hitch with only right side sway control. I added this to the left side and noticed it helps to reduce the tail wag I was feeling during windy conditions at speeds greater than 50mph. This unit is built very well. Installation is easy if you can follow directions and have the proper tools. If not this would take an experienced mechanic only 15-30 minutes to install.

Sway Control - Worth the Price

I installed this product on a 28' travel trailer. When I was towing the trailer home from the dealer, I noticed considerable sway when a vehicle passed or when I encountered a gust of wind. I installed sway controls on both sides of the camper. The instructions were easy to follow, and installation took me about 20 minutes for each side (after I bought the correct size drill bit). The difference in stability was amazing. While there still is some movement while towing on the Interstate, it is not nearly as noticeable or prolonged as it was previously. I feel that the difference in stability is well worth the price.

An Excellent Choice for Smaller Trailers

August 29, 2012
The E-Z Sway Control unit we purchased has been a blessing. No matter how we loaded our trailer, we had trouble with excessive sway from wind, and sudden changes in steering. This caused excessive wear on the trailer tires and made long trips exhausting. This unit, which uses an adjustable friction plate, eliminates 95% of the sway and what is left is nothing of any consequence. Welding is required to mount the small ball hitch to the hitch tongue, but not a big deal. I had my mechanic do this for me. I also had to move the emergency brake switch from the side of my trailer frame to the underside. The installation is really quite easy. The result, as I said, have been amazing. We now spend more time with our camper enjoying ourselves. For the price, this is a bargain by any standard.

Left side 2nd sway control

This second sway control solved my 32 ft Passport Trailers sway. Tractor trailers are almost not even felt at times. Before adding this second sway control I was seriously thinking about selling my trailer that's only 2 months old.

Cheap materials used

Although this sway bar is easy to use, I feel that the materials used to make it are cheap. My sway bar is only 1 year old and has been used 7 times. The tightening nut on top (where the lever is), stripped out. Now I have to replace the entire unit.
