I believe you can, as long as the bars aren't the round type. If the are square/flat type bars, it will work. I have a friend who could get you the dual cam for less than Camping World...

If you are interested, e-mail me and I'll put you in touch with him, he runs an RV parts/accessories warehouse and can beat that price. I got mine from him for $158.

The purchaser of our Nash trailer and I met at a local hitch installer today to exchange title and money. He had a Reese Dual Cam put on his truck. I asked about converting our EZ Lift--you can convert a standard Reese, but not the EZ Lift I was told. The Reese bars attach to the hitch head in a different manner. So..instead of an under $200 conversion it becomes a $600 job
(dual cam, bars, and hitch head and installation).

I'm interested in the Reese Weight Distributing Hitch and the Dual Cam Anti-Sway. Should this all be about $550 in total?

DrawTite's dual-cam add-on kit says that it works for either trunnion or round bars. Reese and DrawTite are the same company.

Reese e-mailed me back and this is their reply:

"It will as long as the spring bar cam will fit on the end of the Ez-Lift
bar. It needs to be flat on the end like the Reese bars.
Tech Service"

That was their e-mail word for word. My bars are round, and after they make their 90-degree turn towards the back they start flattening out. The last 10" is pretty flat, but they are not square. Their response seems to indicate that they only have to be flat. Does this sound correct?

Just took the rig out with a newly installed Reese Dual Cam, I had been using just a friction bar for years. Friday, May 3rd, here in Massachusetts we had extreme winds with gusts over 50 mph. I took the rig out on the expressway and yes I could feel the wind - but it wasn't bad and I didn't dare go over 55 mph. At one point, when the wind died down and an 18 wheeler went by and I didn't even notice it. On the trip home - I was going 60 65 mph and you wouldn't even know the trailer was behind you. So, far I'm happy with the dual cam system.
