Have your dealer check your axle alignment. If it's out of alignment it will bobble back and forth as the tracking is greatly offset. Check tire pressure on both your TT and your TW. Make sure the dealer installed your sway bars correctly as well. There are several issues that could cause the sway. A trailer is just a trailer and they all pull the same if properly setup. Failing any part of these issues could cause problems.

Good luck and keep us posted.

from what i've read, i don't think the Anderson WDH is a good choice for longer and heavier trailers.

Something wrong

I have a friend who tows the same trailer with an F150 ecoboost. Seems to tow adequately, but not great I would think that a 2500 properly set up should do better. Is the back of the pickup empty or full? How about your load distribution inside the trailer?

Angry weight distribution

I have less than 100# in the truck and very little in the trailer I even drained the tanks of water. I have been pulling travel trailers for over forty years and this is the worst I have ever had. I am at a lost and am willing to try anything.

I'd take it to the dealer, even with zero sway control that truck should be very stable pulling it, certainly not what you're describing.
