I may be missing something, but in lieu of reading through everything, the major differences in towing a 5w versus a TT are:
5W is taller
5W will place more weight on the tow vehicle, 15-25% vs. 10-15%
5W resists sway- pivot point is ~at rear axle of tow vehicle vs. a TT being several feet behind. A high quality hitch such as a ProPride or Hensley will make the TT pull very similar to a 5W.
5W and TV will be shorter than a same length TT since part of the rig is over the bed.
