If that's the case, I'd imagine there are many people who have sway control being used more like a band aid or even camouflaging the actual problem.

I guess that's not really an argument against having sway control.

It's a good point though. If you use sway control it would be a good idea to take a test drive without the sway control before you go on a long trip. If you get sway you need to reload your trailer.

Always better to solve the problem then treat the symptoms.

Can't agree enough with using sway control. Last two trips this year we were facing 25 to 30mph winds and getting pushed around pretty good. Can't imagine 200 mile trip home without my blue ox system imo it worked well but still need to dial in.

I couldn't use any sort of sway control on our old pup because it had surge brakes. The only vehicle that towed that was my old 2002 F150 and I never had any issues whatsoever. Strategic loading I think played a big role in my lack of sway with that camper.

I have a 12k Reese dual cam on my TT now and love it. I agree 100% with all posted...cheap insurance.

Should just be considered standard equipment. It's not that expensive.
