Do I need a sway bar for my trailer?

How does a sway bar work on a travel trailer?

A dual-cam sway control system works on large, long pull trailers. The bars attach to your trailer’s swing bars and A-frame, right beside the hitch. The cams unlock when the trailer turns to allow it to move but still prevent intense swaying. Hitches with attached anti-sway bars work on small tongue trailers.

How tight should a sway bar be?

You would make it about as tight as you think it needs to be and then tow the trailer to see if it needs to be tighter or looser. If you made it as tight as you can then you would not be able to move the bar by hand but the force of the trailer pushing it around can move it.Travel
