I seem to be having a hard time putting the bars flush into the cams in a straight line. I 'll go get that looked at.
The drive today (first drive other than bringing tt home) was good. On the highway kept speed around 90 km/hr (55 mph). No wind but wet roads. Semi trucks passed us and we didn't feel any sway

I should add that the hitch was installed before the trailer was loaded.

Not exactly sure what you are trying to say.

Now that the trailer is loaded, I place the trunion bars on the the cams and when I put the chains on, the bars no longer sit centered (meaning the curved side thay should be sitting on the cam is not) and seems a bit short

You will need to adjust the cams just a little to allow for the loaded camper. Sounds like you are really getting the dual cams dialed in.....it should do a great job on the road. But before you do any more adjusting, let's do a follow up on your parallel thread to see what is going on with your weight distributing.
