I found a Curt
for $50 and a Reese
for $100. Any significant differences?
I don't think that there is a huge difference in friction sway controls. I have had two, one a Reese and the other a Draw-Tite and both had almost exactly the same operational instructions regarding initial adjustment and changes that are necessary if prevailing wind increases/decreases, if pavement becomes slippery, etc. I became disenchanted with the friction sway controls and switched to Reese Dual Cam sway control . . . once properly setup, the only time that it needs adjustment is if trailer loading changes considerably (it is available as an "add-on" device from Reese dealers . . . my experience is with the original Dual Cam, I am not familiar with the newer high performance Dual Cam).
Good luck with your investigation!
