I've noticed the same thing however,
two thoughts:
1) I've towed in some nasty cross wind... and my trailer was towing as straight as an arrow while I watched a trailer in front of me doing the rear end wag. I believe you are better with than without.
2) You have $100,000 in brand new equipment rolling down the highway is it really worth taking the chance when suddenly you find yourself driving in a dust storm with nasty winds?

It takes only a couple of minuets to hook everything up and it all fits nice in the Airstream storage compartment when in camp or in storage so I think I'll stick with the WD and sway control.

If you decide to get bags Id love to hear a report about how it impacts ride quality when not towing.

Az, Your point #2 is a cincher! No argument can refute that one. However I remain curious.
