If it was a 20 footer Globetrotter, no problem.

I can feel it sway on a windy day just looking at it.

I can't say about the sway propensities of single axles, but I do have a tandem axle '59 Overlander 26, so they were available. This trailer went on the Europe Caravan and the OOs were serious travelers, so it may have been a custom feature.
