Well that would just make it twice as bad.

All Anti-sway systems work by applying resistance it's a matter of how it goes about it. The ones that are not friction use side push torque. Friction units do have to be adjusted properly to work correction probably a little more trouble than some of the other types, they have to be tightly adjusted and they do wear at the friction point.

They don't all work by friction really.

The dual cam is also active with trying to keep the trailer centered where the friction bar is only reactive.

But anyway don't want to get all off topic in another persons thread.

I have the different style of hitch, being the Anderson hitch, where the sway control is bulit into the receiver ball. Now, being that this is my first WDH and don't have any experience with others, I like how easy it is to setup and take off but haven't had much sway experience other than a few gusts that made the back end feel like it was stepping out. I would say I'm about 50/50 on mine- maybe I will feel different after I add airbags to my Tundra.

I think I'm going to go w/ Equalizer. It has both WDH & Sway built into one.
Sine the camper dry weight is 4365lb, hitch 623lb and cargo capacity 1833lb will put us at 6198lb (camper & cargo). I'm thinking the hitch weight w/ cargo will be 870lb. This will leave about 130lb extra over the rear axle of TV.
Question is should I get Equalizer 1000 or 1200? Only $30 difference between the two.

Oh, BTW.... Nice pictures of Tundra and their camper.
We just purchased the Tundra Crewmax for the Roo. Had a Tacoma prior and loved it.
We are currently avg city driving between 17-18 mpg. I know it will drop once pulling the Roo. But I plan on pulling no faster than 65mph. No steep hills in Florida so that should help.
