There's no law requiring you to use a wdh.
But if you read your vehicle's owners manual's towing section, it should state a tongue or trailer weight that a wdh is recommended.

Hi, just my 2 cents. I have a Roo23RS pulled by a 2005 Durango 5.7 with all the tow extras. Towed a pup with no extras. Never experienced sway with the pup. Very glad to have WDH with antisway on TT. Larger trailer, shorter wheelbase on TV, a lot more energy from wind etc. transferred to Durango. I still have not suffered sway, but am very glad to have my present set up. Have Fun!!

So we went to the local dealer and picked up their recommended WDH, they looked up the weight of my trailer and said the 600 lb should be enough. We did not get the anti sway bar but plan on adding that as soon as possible. We are now the proud owners of a 2004 bunkhouse Roo there is a bit of cleaning to do, but other than that we can't wait to test it out! My dad owns a campground so how convenient for us! Thank you for all of the tips and comments! I'm sure I will have plenty more questions!

We had a sway bar on our Coleman bayside. Going to Kansas City from Denver the trailer started to fishtail and ended up jackknifed in the middle of I-70. Couldn't find a reason. Lucky the trailer didn't flip. I would suggest, at least, a sway bar on both sides of the tongue.
