more views of our truck, camper and hitch. Would love any idea's at all to stop the sway and bounce, we are in a rural Iowa area and not sure how far the nearest weigh station is and I'll ask my husband as soon as he gets home from work to be more specific on what he's feeling with sway, I just know from the passenger seat I can feel the camper move

Good job on figuring out how to post pictures. You got it faster than I was able to type.

PS
Did the pin that you are using for the hitch come with your system? My hitch pin is much bigger but then I have a different system.

On my TT setup I use a 5/8" locking hitch pin for the hitch receiver that I got from Wal-Mart. Due to the fit of the hitch pin there's no room for the receiver to shift around. However, I don't have much knowledge in this field so please wait for more experienced members to share.

From the pictures it appears to be an Equalizer Brand 4 point WDH. This is a very good hitch when adjusted correctly works very well to remove sway and bouncing. It appears that you have do not have it adjusted properly and have to much squat in the rear of your tv.
Try following the adjustments in the attached owners manual.

Looks like trailer is high in the front and the truck is squatting.

Lower the hitch head to lower the trailer and adjust the bars get more load on the front of the truck.

I agree.
You may need to start over.
