run 1 or 2 anti-sway bars

Right now I'm running with 1 anti-sway on the right side, and I noticed when coming down a hill it pulls to the right (some times not all), I was wondering if I should run 2 anti-sway bars or ???


How many are others running on their setups?

I run with 2. Have not had any sway since. Semi's can pass and no sway. How long is your TT? Longer units need 2.

its a 27' BH Shasta Revere, (the overall is 30). I'm thinking I should go get another one for the left side.

I was told anything under 26' overall length they recommend 1 sway bar. Over that length they would like you to have 2. But that was the dealers preference that they tell to new buyers. I run with 1 on mine (overall length 29') and have not had an issue after adjusting the brake tension screw.

It's the screw that is on the other side of the tensioning lever. You can tighten this to compensate for wear etc. The sway control is really just a big brake pad sandwiched between a metal bar. I have two sway controllers, I only use both on extremely windy days. My trailer is 25' overall. The instructions for my sway control recommended two units for trailers over 25 feet.

happy camping,

i just picked up a second sway bar from harbor freight for 29$! shasta revere 30 ckbh (33' overall). my first sway bar (husky) instructions state >26' need two.
whats funny is when I asked the dealership to please make sure I have everything I need for the trailer truck combo (perfect opportunity to sell me 2 bars) they told me all I need is one! I just installed the second one and have not towed yet but will in two days...
