sway control ??

Hi again everyone. On my current TT set-up I have a WD hitch that is rated for 800lb tongue weight and I've been using a friction sway control with it. With the new camper i'll have 5 more feet behind me so i was thinking about getting the Reese Dual Cam sway control. This may sound dumb,but it it a universal fit that I can add to my WD hitch that i have now. The maker of the one I currently have is Round Robin. I didnt want to have to buy a whole new set-up just to get the Dual Cam Sway ,but i dont really want to use just the friction control sway either with the extra length.
Any help would be great!!!!

The reese dual cam straight line hitch uses special weight bars
that have an inverted V on the ends. I doubt they would fit
your WD hitch head. You'd also need the trunions that the cams
are on and the mounts for same.
Short answer is no.
If you want the reese dual cam you need the whole shebang I'm pretty sure.
The beauty of the dual cam is the anti sway is built into the design of
the hitch. With others the anti sway is an add on.
I have one and it's really starting to grow on me.
I had to keep reminding myself I had a trailer back there on the last
trip. Remembering it was back there was never a problem with the
previous trailer and regular ball and friction bar hitch.
It's pricey but once you get it set up --I had to adjust mine,
the dealer mechanic did NOT install it correctly-- I think you'll like it a lot.

Good Luck!

that's kinda what i figured and i called camping world and that was exactly what he said also about the weight bars being shaped a certain way for the sway control to attach to it. I was hoping for a different answer since I use the friction sway now with the camper i tow and it just doesnt seem to do the job. The dealer where i'm buying the new one suggested putting a second friction sway on the opposite side which would be more reasonably priced to do, but I hate to throw $100 away on someething that isnt gonna work and then still have to go buy a whole new hitch set-up.
