New Used Rockwood XL 1270SS

Hello,
I am a new member
I was given a USED Rockaway 1270SS
I am trying to find whatever I can about it, floor plans, as built, reasonable options I can add....
I know as currently configured, single axle, new tire, correct air pressure, empty Propane tanks, it whips excessively behind my Ford 1997 F150 XLT. I tow a single axle, tri hull boat and that tracks beautifully behind the rig.
I just bought a sway control bar to attach to the trailer because the rigs whips violently....

Any help on the above is appreciated..

Do you mean a Rockwood, not Rockaway

Welcome to the forums.
I would check/replace wheel bearings. The sway control should help but a pop up should not sway that bad. If you still have troubles may need to check alignment of axle?

Is the trailer level when you are towing . popups don't like to be towed nose up, this can cause sway. What is your tongue weight need, light tongue weight can also lead to sway. I towed a 12 ft palomino behind a Volvo V70 and a Kia sedona without sway control and never had any issue with sway.
