I pulled a 23 ft Award with my 1500 Jimmy. Terrible rig and the Award was known to sway badly, so I used a friction anti-sway... Wouldn't dare run without it! Then, when I bought our first Airstream, and towed with the Dakota Quad cab, the rig was always very stable. I mentioned this to Andy Thompson on one of our rallys. He said you won't need the anti-sway until you have an emergency; then you will be glad you have it! I started using it and I had that "emergency" in Texas. Never ever ran without it again

Sway control

During our upstate NY July 4th travel my daughter (a non camper) made the comment on how some camper trailers seemed to sway a lot on the road. I had just finished telling her about sway control when we saw an overturned camper across the medium strip. I have used a ball hitch and a hensely and definitely recommend the Hensely type.

Without any WD/SC equipment you had better be ready for the rig to suddenly sway with the slightest upset or change in conditions. If the sway goes divergent, and that cannot be predicted, you are going to wrap it all up in a ball. There are a lot of sway accidents the verify this cause. Even the best and most technological hitch system is not accident free. A jack knife will ruin your day.
