Hitch system w Dually TV

Curious about folks who have towed 30’ AS with a dual rear wheel “dually ” pickup truck TV?

We pulled our 30’ 2017 flying cloud for 3,000 with a late model F350 dually, and occasionally we’d feel major wind displacement when passing big rigs on interstates. When the front of the big rig would line up to the hitch point, our rig would be pushed a bit left. Curious if a hitch will address this, as a dual rear wheel (6 tire) truck has as much grip as any TV can have. Thoughts please on:

1. Is a hitch necessary with a DRW tow vehicle? And 2. If so, any recommendations? Thank you. A newby.

sway control and WD is needed regardless of size of TV

IMO a hitch is necessary, but I also feel that a 350 is overkill for towing an AS. The stiffer the TV suspension the more chance of damage.

Thoughts...the 'bigger' the TV the less you will feel the sway, big alone will not prevent it.
The PPP style hitches do prevent sway, all others mitigate. We folks who use the PPP can try to explain it, but when you experience the difference first hand it becomes clear.

Bottom line try it...what we all think are only thoughts and experience, use it 'til you're not happy and change it 'til you are.🤔
