Quick question on sway

Ok... Spent a good bit of time researching tow setups.... I am currently saving for a wd sway combo.... But here is the thing... All the research has made me paranoid to tow with out one... And I do need to take a 35 min trip to the tire store soon,

So here is the question,
Is there a speed sway is not dangerous.....is the 31 ft soveriegn prone to sway(72).... I see people on the highway constantly with no form of sway control going straight as an arrow so please fill me in, the only thing I know is the font needs to be heavier than the back

Sway for a short trip will probably not be a problem But depending on what you are towing with a weight distribution hitch will be needed. Without it, unless you have a real heavy duty truck the full tongue weight of the trailer will be applied to your bumper where the ball is attached. That's not good.

The best route is actually on the interstate so if I keep it at 45mph 18 wheelers will be screaming by me at 70.... Not looking forward to that
