16' Sport....

..... Equals low tongue weight.

IMHO, It would be beneficial to go with the system that doesn't depend on tongue weight to control sway.

Our single axle Safari was much more susceptible to sway than our current Classic dual axle.
It turned out that the best system for the Safari was the good old friction bar.
