I still have a lot of "sway" in my TT when traveling down the highway. I rarely exceed 65mph and almost the entire time you can watch the rear of the TT swaying back and forth while traveling down the road. You can feel it in the pull vehicle also. After about 30 minutes you kinda get used to it but it is still kinda unnerving. My question is...will installing a friction type anti sway bar help or is my TT just too heavy for my pull vehicle? The TT says it is 7200 lbs dry but I would guess it is another 100 added to that when we are on a trip. I have added a pic of the hitch. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Sway is not always "corrected" by sway control devices built in or added to the WD setup. My TT handled fairly well but still had a slightly noticeable sway to it. I changed the truck and trailer tires to E-load and all the sway disappeared. There were no changes made to the WD system.
A 7,200 pound trailer (probably more will be discovered if you visit a CAT scale) should definitely be rolling on the E series tires.
