This could be one of those things that you don't consider to be critical until you find yourself in a sudden wind gust or on the interstate with some trucker friends. I'm sure some of the longer trailers would tow fine on the straight and level and great weather conditions as long as they had significant hitch weight. But it is the conditions that are not perfect that warrant the peace of mind and also the overall utility that a WD hitch with sway control can offer.
Plus, you can load more hitch weight on a vehicle that is properly configured with a WDH setup. For mine, it is 600 lbs hitch weight without WDH and with WDH it is 890 lbs.
Unless you are just talking about sway control, as you can get WDH without sway control, but I don't know why anyone would.
What are you towing with and what hitch setup do you currently have? PS: I'm no expert here, but I believe I have the fundamentals down thanks to everyone here at FRF.
NO TV!!! NOW WHAT???
