Weight Distribution 

 

Towing without a Hayman Reese Weight Distribution Systems can cause unnerving trailer sway, reduced steering and braking responsiveness, less traction and misaligned head lamps. Overtime you may also notice a reduction in fuel economy and in increased tyre wear.

Hayman Reese Weight Distribution Systems improve safety, handling, control and comfort when towing.

When using a Weight Distribution System, the ball weight remains the same, however the load is evenly distributed through the vehicle’s chassis to all four wheels. It is important that the capacity of the Weight Distribution System is correctly chosen and that the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendations are always followed.

The Dual Cam HP is fitted in conjunction with any Heavy Duty Hayman Reese Weight Distribution System that includes high performance spring bars with Cams. It is ideal for any trailers with a ball weights in excess of 200kg.

The advantage of the Dual Cam system is its ability to prevent sway in addition to sway resistance. It works to hold down the start of swaying activity while at the same time allowing free and easy vehicle and trailer interaction. To allow for easy reversing, Hayman Reese suggests that the Dual Cam Sway is removed.

 

Friction Sway

Trailer sway is one of the most common concerns for those who tow. Trailer sway can be influenced by poor weight distribution, tyre pressure, towing speed and suspension. But most commonly it is caused by strong winds and wind buffets from large vehicles such as trucks.

Complete sway control can be obtained by fitting a Hayman Reese Friction sway controller. Hayman Reese sway controllers are designed to be used in conjunction with a weight distributing systems and prevent trailer sway by restricting and damping the movement between the tow hitch and the trailer. Recommended for tow ball weights up to 200kg. To allow for easy reversing, Hayman Reese suggests that the Friction Sway Controller is removed.
