Trailer Sway Response Test Procedure

This SAE Recommended Practice establishes a consistent procedure for measuring and analyzing the natural sway response of a particular trailer when attached to a particular vehicle under specific loading and operating conditions. This test procedure applies, but is not limited to, passenger cards, vans, light trucks, and medium-duty trucks as tow vehicles, and semitrailers with a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 11,794 kg (26,000 pounds) or less.

Other articulated vehicles can utilize this test procedure as long as the test does not exceed the linear response range of the tires. This test procedure does not apply to motorcycle towing trailers.
