I've towed with a Reese Dual Cam for years and a lot of miles. No problem. The only advice I would offer is to quickly find a dealer who knows what he's talking about.

I agree with Larry about reese dual cam as I have 1 of original set ups never had problems even when jack knifed when backing with no damage, plus many miles as he stated find another not one who doesn't have idea what he is talking about.

I just started using the Blue Ox sway pro. And one of their selling points is to be able to back up with it.

No problem with backing the Andersen system. I am having a Blue Ox Sway Pro installed tomorrow. It is reported to also not be a problem backing up.

Our ProPride, which does not use friction for sway control, backs easily.

I have backed my previous 25 and 27 footers into many a spot between semis in the truck stops and into tight back in camp sights and have never had a problem with the Reese dual cam weight distribution sway control hitch. Maybe checking with another dealer would be good as this advice sounds almost like they have no idea what they are doing. Either that, or I do not know....mmmm....

Or, possibly someone was confusing backing while flat towing a vehicle behind a motorhome. This is impossible without severely damaging the towing setup and towed.... In almost all situations. Apparently there are some super talented folks who can back straight, but I have never seen them.

If you are going to Foley, be sure to ask for Gary to install your hitch. He knows his stuff.

Just got back home with my new Blue Ox Sway Pro. I can confirm there appeared to be no issues with backing.
