Husky centerline here.

"Active" sway control.

Can't say much about it other than the add copy:

Except that I have no complaints so far! Works great on my 35 foot TT.

Custom Trailer Hitch Products, Custom Receiver Hitch, Heavy Duty Towing, Curt Manufacturing

how exactly does that fit on? and whats the advantage/disadvantage of this style of friction control over the cam system or the equalizer system?
The friction bar that shows up in that posts hooks up to small ball on 1 side of your ball mount platform, and the other ends hooks up to a ball that is mounted to your trailer frame. The mounting on the frame has to be exact, or it is possible to bend the friction bar during sharp turns. That system works decent for short trailers, but not as well on long trailers.

thanks for al the help your advice has really help me when looking for towing info there is so much out there that conflicts with each other that your help has really narrowed down my searches
I don't know anything about surge brakes, so I am going to let others take over in that area. As far as the trailer for your tractor, I think most people don't use a WHD for something like that. Again, I hope others post their ideas on that.

Once you get a set up for your camper, it will pretty much be dedicated to the camper. The horse trailer with surge brakes--- Surge brakes are hydraulic, and are activated by a master cylinder on the tongue pushing fluid to brakes on the wheels, very similar to car brakes. There will be a locking mechanism on the tongue that you must get out and engage in order to back up. Then remember to release it, as this turns the brakes off. As for towing your tractor, you will need a trailer with electric brakes, but you will already have a controller in the truck. You will have to readjust it. You will also need a different slider with a ball on it to put in the hitch. Sway control most likely will not be necessary. How just slow down and do one thing at a time, and do it right. Hope this helps.
