Sway Control

Towing a trailer puts added weight and strain on your vehicle, altering the way it maneuvers. Passing a semi-truck, making a quick maneuver or an unexpected gust of wind can make it difficult to keep your vehicle and trailer under control. Having a trailer sway control unit can help keep you, your passengers and other drivers on the road safe.

There are many different factors that can cause trailer sway. Uneven road surfaces, tire inflation pressure, towing speeds, wind gusts or an improperly loaded trailer can all contribute to a trailer swaying or moving side-to-side. Luckily, there is an inexpensive solution to reduce or prevent trailer sway.

A sway control uses friction to resist the pivotal movement that causes trailer sway. Mounted to the frame of the trailer, it counteracts any lateral movement. The sway control uses an abrasive material to provide resistance and stiffen the coupling between the trailer and tow vehicle. This reduces sway yet still allows you to make proper turns. Engaging and disengaging the sway control is made simple by using an on-off handle.
