Do I need to use a Hayman Reece Stabilser on a drawbar pulling a 21' Bushtracker with a Landcruiser Workmate traytop?

Yes, Yes, and Yes.....
You are courting disaster without it.

In a extreme accident avoidance maneuver on the highway at 100 kph, when your tow vehicle is stretched to the limit to recover, it gives you an added 20-25% more control and recovery ability. That is a conservative figure, in the right circumstances it would and could be much more. Anyone can do the big swerve, it is the recovery that is the make or break issue...

Read in the Owners Section, in the Category TOP TEN THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE PICKING UP YOUR NEW BUSHTRACKER....

The WDH is only for highway use, and puts downward pressure on the tow vehicle steering, instead of lifting it off with all the weight out past the rear axle. It is not just for leveling like on the cheaper vans and tow vehicles, although it accomplishes that as well. In our situation it is more about steering bite and control at high speed.

As part of the kit, it also comes with a height adjustable "ball mount" so you can set the van up down at least 50 mm in the front with that adjustment of the two pieces. That is also extremely important for stability and anti-sway.

Kind regards, Steven Gibbs, Director

Sway controls have two problems:

They do not work on our size of Bushtracker vans, and / or they are not offered in Australia. They will not make up for lack of loading the van properly and having it hooked up properly, with the correct WDH set up.

I think he is talking about the WDH which my Post above covers...
