There are many thousands of trailers out there using only a ball and not load leveling or sway control running up many millions of miles of safe travel over very many years. Yet you are saying they are not safe. The facts contradict you,
The fact is that trailers with the fanciest hitches get into accidents as well as trailers with the simplest hitches. Odds are more of the simple hitches are in accidents because there are so many more of them. It is very seldom that the hitch is the cause of the accident and the only incidents I have seen or heard about where that is the case is because of mechanical failure.
It is probably best to go along with you and let it go. I consider your position just as dangerous as you seem to think mine is. So let the information and support we have each provided for our points of view be the raw material from which those seeking advice can find their own views. But let's hope they are a bit more in touch with facts and good statistics that is often seen!
