Trailer Sway Control Kit???

Is anyone using a Curt Trailer Sway Control Kit or something comperable to it?
My trailer is 28' long and weighs up to 11k when fully loaded usually loaded around 8-10k. I have a Reese Load distribution hitch and it helps a lot, but the trailer still sways in windy conditions or anytime it's passed by anything larger than a mini van.

Please help.

You would probably like the cams for sway control, I run mine dry ( no lube ) but they work well when set straight ahead. Mount the cams and arms but not tight, pull straight and then tighten. If it leads check which is off center and change it.

I am not fond of the friction sway controls, they do not want to straighten on slick surfaces and dampen the return to center on the steering.
