There is no guarantee that an F250 won't still have problems towing a trailer without proper weight distributing, sway control, and correct trailer loading to make sure there is enough tongue weight. The cause for the current sway problems need to addressed 1st.
The empty weights on that trailer list the hitch as 10.8%. If much of the load is towards the back of the trailer (in the fridge and rear wardrobe), the tongue weight could be reduced to under 10%....a recipe for sway.
The bathroom is in the back !! As you add waste to the tanks, the total weight increases as it takes off weight on the tongue. Traveling with empty waste tanks should be the rule when the tanks are in the back.
Traveling without a WDH with ~500 lb. tongue weight is another big problem. The rear TV axle is probably overloaded, and the front axle doesn't have enough weight on it.
Sway control is very important. Integrated sway control incorporated in the the WDH is the best way to go. Check out Equal-i-zer 4pt, Reese Straight Line Dual Cam, Husky Center Line, or Blue Ox Sway Pro. ProPride or Hensley are top of the line (but not cheap), and are much cheaper than a new truck.
I pull a 28.5' trailer weighing 5500 lbs with an older F150 running P-tire (
) with nary a problem. There should not a problem with a properly equiped 2014 F150 pulling a 22' trailer that is setup correctly.
