BMPRO Caravan Sway Control Monitor
Sway control from BMPRO is an excellent proactive electronic stability controller that automatically stabilises a caravan or camper in the event of sway.
What is the difference between electronic sway controllers?
Manual sway controllers brake the left and the right side brakes simultaneously. The BMPRO trailer sway control applies brakes or creates resistance on the LEFT or RIGHT side, depending upon sway characteristics.
Sway control is engaged when the caravan moves out of the line of travel. In other words, sway to the left side or sways to the right-hand side.

The subject of towing safety is on everybody’s minds with the most recent caravan rollover incident in North Queensland and with the Caravan Industry Association of Australia launching the towing guide earlier this year.
Friction sway controllers and mechanical sway control help prevent trailer sway but are they essential?
Caravan Sway Control Works
Sway Control distinguishes between safe maneuvering and dangerous caravan sway that does not require driver intervention.
With independent control of left and right-hand side caravan braking systems and continual closed-loop feedback, the SwayControl quickly and effectively applies the necessary braking force needed to correct caravan sway.
Use in conjunction with your favourite tow hitch.
Further, BMPRO® sway control systems reduce sway from low tyre pressures on vehicle and trailer and provide more stability to the tow vehicle for highway road conditions. The BMPRO SwayCon has integrated loom technology as well as modifications to suit a new age caravan.
Note: SwayControl automatically disengages when used in offroad conditions.

Sway controllers do not totally compensate for a towing vehicle that is too light, an unbalanced caravan or lack of weight distribution from tow ball. Coupler weight safe scales are the best solution for correct weight distribution.
Please note, BMPRO requires an Authorised Auto Electrician to install sway controllers. Warranty is void if installed by an unauthorised person.
