In addition to the information already posted, note that 4WD is typically limited to speeds under 55 mph. your manual will tell you it should ONLY be used on loose slippery surfaces such as snow/ice, gravel, sand etc. It should NOT be used on pavement unless one of those conditions exists.

At 28 ft, I suggest you look at a built in anti-sway device such as Equalizer. A friction bar is probably not sufficient.

They do recommend using 2 friction sway control units if your trailer is 28' or longer. I had the husky round bar sway and like you did not want to put the extra in purchasing a second unit. I have 2 sway control units on my set up. Have traveled across Canada several times pulling the 34' TT. The only time I had white knuckles was when we hit a storm with cross winds pushing 40+ miles per hour. The winds were so strong that it pushed fully loaded transport trucks off the road.

In my opinion the friction bar style of anti-sway is inefficient, balky and designed to fail. Two would be twice as bad.

However, each of us is different. I would get a WDH with integrated anti-sway.
