What is best sway control system

I am wondering what the best weight distribution and sway control system is. It seems from what I have been reading that the newer types have no chains to deal with.

Does the best system depend on what type of trailer I will be towing? It will probably be a 28 footer at about 4500 lbs dry.

there are a few different systems available, however i think from what i have been reading and a fair amount of people use the reese dual cam setup and are very happy with it. alot of the RV forums also recommend this hitch, and is probably the best bang for buck system. I am using a spring bar with sway control bar currently with no issues, but may upgrade to the reese sytem for my next trailer, for my wifes comfort when she is driving the rig.

Hensley anti sway hitch probably the top end for anti sway, but i think it has a price to match .

in the end though, having a properly set up hitch is probably the biggest factor, regardless of type, as many of us here have had our hitches set up from the dealer very poorly.

you can see my trailer below, although 25' model, it is actually 27'10" and usually about 6200 lbs loaded (5400 dry)

I use the Reese Dual Cam system on my trailer and works great. Never had a problem. My trailer is 32' and 6200lbs dry.

I use Husky Centerline WDH with active sway control. The sway control is the front most portion of the hitch, 2 very large hydraulic pistons. My trailer is 37' 8000 lbs. Cost is roughly $750
