sway control bars

Does anyone have 2 bars? Does it help? Is there a right and left bar? Or both the same?

I have used one for my previous TT but am stepping up to two also since buying a new to me Connect 322 which I'd 35 long overall.I would be interested to know if the second helps to although I have read that two are recommended for tt's over 27 ft.

We recently purchased a 2019 R-Pod RP-180. Based on my previous experience towing travel trailers I had two sway control units installed. While two sway controls on a R-Pod may be overkill it is cheap insurance to me...

There is not a left or right side sway control bar in the friction style I use so they will interchange. Here is the unit I had installed.

I haven't dealt with any real winds yet with the R-Pod. I do know adding a second sway control to my old Trail-Lite Bantam B-17, which is about the same size as a R-Pod, really helped it a lot.
