Tow bars E4 Hitch?

I have an E4 hitch rated for 10Kmand the bars 1K tow weight. How do I know they are enough for my camper?

282RK Heritage Glen, 6850 dry, hitch 700 lbs.
Ford F-150 tow wt 11,100, hitch weight 1100, 3.73 axle, max tow package 1680 payload.

They gave me the E4 hitch with 1k bars. The camper is 34 feet and the truck is 21 feet. I have no trouble towing it but I noticed some wind effect on the rear end of camper. Is it because of the length?

Thanks

You should go through the weighing process to figure out your actual tongue weight and how much front axle weight is being returned to the front axle. Your hitch may not be set up correctly. Feeling some push from wind is normal. Even if it is set up correctly the first couple of windy days you will feel uneasy, i know I was.
