LOL! I think they all do that.
People look at you when you drive through a campground.

The best advice is to keep it clean, and lube the ball on your hitch to prevent excessive wear.

Friction=noise=sway control, hard to get around it.
Follow the manufacturers' advise, keep the WD bars clean and grease free where they go thru the bracket.

I use heavy duty wheel bearing grease on the ball and I spray the bar ends and pivots with WD 40 when I hook up. I wipe the bar ends clean when I unhook. I lock the ball mount into the socket while we are camping but I wipe the ball clean when we get home to store the trailer. It still makes a little noise on a slow turn but not enough to be annoying. It's just the nature of the beast.

Our sway bar does that if it is too tight. Back your tightness off a quarter turn or a half turn, see if it goes away.

I was going to agree with the Titanic comparison until I read this.
Me too. I've greased or lubed every moving partóno discernible difference.

The Exxon Valdez comes to mind as well.
Actually I think perfectly safe and healthy ships make those sounds, especially wooden ships.
Eeeeee er err err tick tick!
Aaaaaw eeeeeee aaaaaaaaw"
Yesterday we were leaving the campground and a lady walking ahead of us had to turn around and look.
Why do campground roads have so many curves?
It is only noisy when you turn.
When we head out Friday I am going to attempt to buy/apply some lube, although from past experience and feedback on the forum I don't think it will make much difference.
Bracket Jackets might make a difference. Surely the bars sliding on nylon will be slightly quieter than the bars sliding on metal. There is a note on the hitch head to lube and keep the bolts tightened to 45 ft. lbs. Maybe I should try that as well.
Nothing you do will make the noise go away, but maybe it will make the noise a little quieter.
I guess in the discussion of trailer names- Loaded Baked Potato, Heirstream- I guess it could be Titanic or Edmund Fitzgerald or Valdez or something.
