ROO 23ss: Use sway bar or not?

I will be pulling my 23ss Rockwood ROO with my F150 to Wyoming. I have the wdh but not the sway. How critical is it if I don't have the sway bar on it?

don't understand why you would use only a wdh, without a anti sway bar.
all the plain wdh will do is shift weight, not control sway, if you have the old tech style of wdh.
newer tech wdh's, like the Equal-i-zer, has integrated sway control, so no additional anti sway bar is needed.

I ran an Eaz-lift WDH for years without a sway bar. When I finally put one on, I couldn't believe how much more comfortable the drive was. For $50.00, why not throw one on.

One windy day of traveling will answer that for you.

It makes a big difference, especially on the interstates. I wouldn't to be without it.

I'm curious ... what brand of WDH do you have and what did you get for your sway control?

I've been looking on Craigslist and finally grabbed an equalizer 4 point 12000 lbs setup for 150.00 bucks. Money well spent

Now that you got one, go get another one for the other side. Makes a BIG difference. Be the best $100 you can spend as far as towing with minimum if no sway with 2 sway bars. Don't be afraid to tighten them as tight as you can get them.
