Friction sway bars

I have a 2017 Jayco white hawk 28DSBH. TV is a 2017 F-150 3.5 ecoboost Max trailer tow. Can two Left & Right friction sway bars be used and will two make a better difference then using one.

Welcome to JOF

Yes, especially with the length/weight of the 28DSBH. Most WDH manufactures recommend using two manual sway control arms with TT's longer then 25ft..

The next level up of enhanced sway control and features would be a WDH with "integrated" sway control (Equal-i-zer, Reese Strait-Line, etc.)...., utilized by many TT owners.

I have a 23MRB. I was using one sway bar at first. When I went over a few valley's and noticed the impact of the crosswind I purchased a second one. Now it seems as if there is no sway at all. For the price, purchase 2.

Donít tow that with an f-50. You wonít be happy. I had a 2016 f150 and it could do it but wasnít comfortable.

If your not going far then fine but you wonít be relaxed I can tell you that. Lookup my past posts for more info.

$2,500. for a hitch set up? Wow!! Maybe in the long run it is a case of "pay me now or pay me later!" But $2,50000!!!

Totally agree. Here is a great WDH with sway control for 1/4 the price:

Eaz Lift ReCurve R6 Hitches with On/Off Sway Control- 1200 lb. tongue weight - Camco 48734 - Sway Controls - Camping World

For those on a budget, the Curt TruTrack (17500, 1000 lb. for $326, 17501, 1500 lbs. for $376 at etrailer.com) offer a lot of bang for the buck---both WD and anti-sway. Mechanically similar to the Equalizer---with integated sway control. I'm not fond of standard friction bars.

That tru-track looks like a "baby" version of the ProPride/Hensley concept. With the bars rigidly attached to the trailer tongue.

Anyone use of these and want to comment on ease of hooking up and if you need to disconnect to back up?
