Safety, is the real issue.
All a trailer tower can do, is use the best there is, drive carefully, and enjoy.
The dual cam Reese sway control has a brain. It knows when the rig is in a turn, by UNEQUALLY adding more tension on the bars. Up to about a 20 degree turn, you can take your hands off the steering wheel and the rig will striaghten out. That is IMPOSSIBLE with a friction sway control, since it has no idea if youir in a turn or not.
Reese bars perform very well when they are in at least a 1 to 2 inch bend. That is the key. They muat bend an inch or two. All to many owners "over hitch" today.
When using a Reese with a 1/2 ton truck as an example, a good rig would use 750 pound bars, when the tongue weight is between 600 and 1000 pounds.
When the bars bend an inch or better yet 2 inches, a Reese dual cam provides a fantastic setup.
Many tests have proven that over and over again.
