I appreciate everyone's input. I checked my local trailer store here and found two brands of friction sway control bars. One was $49.00 and one was $69.00. I opened the boxes and both were identical. I think I will use this type of friction bar for sway control. Also:
A friend has a WD hitch he's selling. It's rated at 1200# tongue weight. This is certainly overkill for my Caravel
, but would it matter. He wants $150 for it and it might be nice to have should I get a larger trailer someday. What do you think? Any negatives of using a 1200# WD system when I need much less?
