Auto4 glad you came out ok from it - what did you do to get out of the sway? Sounds like the sway was caused by a combination of issues - hopefully resolved now

There's a lot of reasoning behind why this could have happened though... I would agree that the TV was a bit on the small size. I don't mean to pick on anyone but I feel the eco boost is another TV that is being a bit over rated and over loaded. The truck may be able to pull the weight it is declaring but with a camper there is a lot more than just weight... I feel the wind resistance is a more important factor... The other fact is the eco boost just isn't very heavy which means the camper is going to OWN the truck, not the other way around...

I think the eco boost is a great in town light load engine but I think people pulling campers with them are going to be more likely to see sway and white knuckle driving due to the light weight TV. Of course all of this can be combated with an appropriate hitch and sway control.. also driving experience comes into play and being aware of said issues...

PANICKED!!! And let off the gas. I wish I had a good story about how my driving expertise saved us from an accident but in reality everything happened so quickly that my first instinct was to let of the gas and pray.
