I'm beginning to be convinced that there is no "one size fits all" solution for many TV/trailer questions. Every combination is a little different and driver ability is really hard to quantify.
Pulling into the drive at the end of the 1250 miles:
One size fits all, may be true for a bed blanket, but it's far from true for properly and safely towing a travel trailer.
Towing "without" a functioning sway control, is a guarantee of trouble when towing, someday, some pleace.
Some folks just love to lean "way over the edge" by eliminating the cost of a sway control, yet they will spend $30,000 to $45,000 dollars for a tow vehicle and at least that, and usually far more, for an Airstream, but won't spend a hundred dollars or more for a sway control.
opinion that my rig handles ok, is to ride in the very back end of the trailer at 60 MPH, or faster.
When you do that, and feel ZERO
sway, then your rig is ok, and not before.
