Hey you roo..... No worries! I'm happy as a clam. Pulling my little camper around the country has given me more joy than almost anything I've done I am always incredibly amazed by the expertise on this site and am always very grateful. I'm afraid my attempt to lend a little humor by sharing some of my embarrassing moments has offended u in some way and for that I am very sorry. I actually used all the information very kindly shared on this thread in the purchase of my new hitch which does indeed have a sway bar. As mtnguy mentioned I've just ordered some smaller bars to accommodate my light camper. At the risk of sounding redundant thanks again to all who lent their expertise. In the words of Cat Stevens..."We r old but we r happy." :-)

Of course you need a WDH. I recommend the E2 hitch which incorporates sway control as well as weight distribution. As for the safety chains dragging, be sure you are crossing them, that way they will catch the tongue of your trailer if it should detach from your tow vehicle.

Thanks. I have indeed added a WDH and it makes a world if difference. Pulling the camper is now a little boring by comparison to my pre hitch days. Next trip is to CallowAy Gardens at Smith Mountain Georgia. Life is good.
