We spent a month in Florida last march, and we are hooked. We found that it was a little small for long term. We have already reserved two months for next year at the same resort. Your choice for a tt, can't be beat if you consider weight, price, counter space,and smart lay out. We just can not start to get two months of things in our fbrs to head south next winter

We're not quite ready to leave for 2 months. Our grandchildren are within mikes but as the others out of state start families we might have to visit for longer periods of time

I've got nearly the same trailer. I pull with a 4.2L 6 cyl Trailblazer, so you won't have any problems at all. When I brought it home, I had my WDH from the last trailer but no sway control. It pulled straight with absolutely no problems at all even with needing to tweak the WDH when I got it home. I do run it with a single friction sway bar. I've never had any problems with sway on it, but the one time I was cruising along open highway at about 60 with a 20 mph crosswind and a semi passed me in the opposite direction, I was REALLY glad I had it. It nearly knocked my tow mirrors off the side. Aside from a little rocking back and forth (not swaying) it drove straight.

Just a note, make sure that hitch is not rated too high for your tongue weight. Too much can be just as bad as not enough (rough ride, bounce, etc.) Try to stay in the 400-600 lb range if you can. 1000 is going to be overkill.

An anti-sway hitch is great safety item, when a semi goes by, going through the mountains or a strong gusts of wind. Many people forget the most important feature of your tow truck is....will it stop in an emergency. This is number one! Better safe than sorry....get an anti-sway system.
