When you make a turn, the Reese dual cam torsion bars, unequally
increase the torsion, to increase the sway control. That also permits, within reason, taking your hands off the steering wheel, and the rig will return to a "straight line."
That's where the name came from.
In the case of the Equalizer, in a turn, it does not
increase the torsion on the bars, therefore the bars have no idea if your turning or in a straight line.
Same is true for a "friction type" sway control. It has no idea if your in a straight line or not.
A load equalizing hitch that alter what it does, depending on what the rig is doing, is far superior.
Hensley hitches, also have a brain, but costs a lot more than the Reese.
