UPDATE from OP:
Well, the virgin towing experience of my new 2011 Flagstaff Micro Lite 25DS (twin to Rockwood Mini Lite 2502S) with 2001 Jeep Limited, 56k miles, 4x4, 4.7, v8, is done! And I must say, the tow was a piece of cake compared to my fears. (thinking the air bags and performance brake pads and rotors helped).
Just kept in right lane at 55 - 62; I noticed the trailer was there, but it didn't feel heavy and very little if any sway.... though it was empty (except for 1/3 fresh water the dealer already had in it) and I was on flat terrain... but am very pleased with the experience. Maybe once it is loaded with personal affects I will feel more drag and sway.
I didn't have any 18 wheelers blow by me at 20 mph faster either, so that experience remains to be felt ; I just edged a little to the right as the big boys approached and all was fine. I even pushed to 70+ mph at one point with no problem to make a need lane change as the highway forked.
I am really glad I went with the travel trailer that I wanted from the beginning. Plenty of room with the slide / couch across from dinette, kitchen out of the living area and 2 doors and island queen in front.
Taking it out in the country where I am going to store at a friends farm..... and he happens to be having a bonfire Sat. night. Good way to break 'er in.
Thanks to all again for the advice!
