Keep us posted. I have a 2012 Vlite and it wobbles too but it is tolerable. Curious to see how you do.

Just picked up my 2014 30WFKSS from the dealer, all tanks empty. TV a 2012 RAM 2500 diesel without WDH or Sway Control. The TT and TV sat level. Pulled at 60 - 65mph without a wiggle! The only hint of movement was felt coming down off a tall overpass on the Interstate. My TT experience has been limited to pulling a 17' Casita with a 1/2 ton TV. Even the Casita is sensitive to tongue weight loading. Is it possible the WFKSS is just as sensitive with the Fresh Water tank being placed all the way aft?

I would highly suggest a WDH and sway control. One 18 wheeler going down the road will make you a believer...

The 2012 Ram was a loaner from the RAM Dealer. I ordered a new Ram 2500 diesel with automatic rear air bags and trailer sway controller! The equal-i-zer 1400 Hitch is on order! :-) My post was just to comment on my experience towing without a properly equipped TV and no TT sway.

Are you going to put Sway Control and a W/D Hitch on or just (Wing It)? You will need to know your (Ready to GO Weights) for your T/W. Add the amount of water (Before) you scale it,T/W will really change,and Not for the Good! I know water weights but you cant just add that to the equation,you need water (IN the Tank) for proper info on how it reacts on these units! Youroo!!

I am sucking up all the information I can from the forum! Before I hit the road on my first WFKSS trip! Thanks for the input.

I have a 2013 WTBSK V-Lite that I pull with a 2011 Ram 1500 with Equalizer WDH, and Air Bags. Normally drive @ 60-65 got up to 70 going downhill and the trailer is always right inline behind me. Get it back to the dealer

I run an Equlizer 4 point 10,000/1000 hitch with airbags on my F250 towing my V-Lite and I have no issues at all. The front kitchen model may be a bit more tongue weight sensitive than mine though, best of luck to you...

I have a 2009 v lite wrls, its a little lighter than the 2014 , anyway I tow it with a 2006 Chevy Avalanche and use a 10000 lb weight distribution plus 2 sway brakes without a problem. Sounds like it is tail heavy, was it loaded with water and a lot of things behind the axle.
