Hi Mitchkim,
Yes you would probably notice a good improvement using a Dual Cam sway system over the twin friction bars. I said probably because I have not towed with two friction bars - only one. I noticed a huge improvement when I switched to the Dual Cam.
Yes the Dual Cam will probably fit your present EZ Lift bars. Others on the forum have done it. You may have do do a bit of filing or grinding on the ends of the bars or perhaps drilling out a hole or two but it can be done, and is worth the effort.
Good luck.

Ok guys,

I am interested too in the dual cam setup. Sounds great for going forward. How about backing? Doesn't it bind really bad backing? How do you avoid this? Do you drop the WD bars before backing?

I see a possibility of breaking off the lug ears on the hitch. Of course, I am speaking from ignorance, never talked to anyone that owned the setup.

Thanks in advance......

I am interested in the dual cam system because I actually pull my camper behind a 16' ATV trailer. I eventually want to get two complete setups, but finances are restricting me to buy one at a time. Which one should I install it on first. The ATV trailer directly behind the truck or the camper behind that?

I pulled a 31' Holiday Rambler Presidential for 10 years with a friction sway control and didn't think I could get any better control. Then I went to the dual cam and a 34' Airstream, for four years and what a difference the dual cam made. Now I think I have the best, see sig.

Ssgar,
There is no problem backing up at all with the Dual Cam setup. You do not have to disconnect anything - just back up as if it were not there.
