Would I be able to tow the new camper without an external sway bar? The tv is rated at 7700 lbs
I’d try to tow it first without sway control. To answer your question you don’t need sway control. That said you are the judge of your own setup, I’d hook it up and tow it and see how it feels and responds to typical sway inducing events like lane changes and being passed by semis.

If it’s all over the place then you would benefit from sway control, there are electronic sway control devices that use the trailer brakes. Heck your Chevy May have a system that brakes not only your TV but the trailer brakes, so do some research on the TV electronic sway control for your application.

Plenty of people tow without sway control safely.
