You beat me to it. Saying that 99% of all WDH in cg's are not set up correctly...That's a pretty strong statement to make in my opinion. Really? 1 out of 100 is correct? Vegas wouldn't take those odds. I guess we know who's WDH is right...

I'm guessing this was without sway control plus a driver who was clueless on how to own, set up and drive a TT. The trucker was doing about 65:

Dave W,

The link you posted is the same link previously posted in response #22 in this thread. It's "old information" and previously addressed.

For me, sway is not an option, so I've chosen to pull with a Hensley Arrow. Sway isn't just controlled, it's eliminated. There's a couple options besides Hensley, pullrite makes a bumper pull trailer hitch, and propride makes a good one too. There might be others. For me, the safety of my family far out weighs the price tag on the Hensley.

Just my two cents.

I still had some sway with a Propride finally got it solved

I have an Airstream 30 Classic and for a while had a Propride. It actually towed worse with the PP than with Dual Cam i originally had. I fiddled with the hitch for 8 months before going back to the Dual Cam. I gave the PP to a friend of mine who has a 2016 308BHS and he had the same problem. We finally tracked it down to the slack in the 2" receiver. The problem was solved by welding on the top of the front and the bottom at the rear and grinding it flat to take up the slack. We also replaced the hitch pin with a 5/8 grade 8 bolt and tightened it up with the breaker bar that comes with the hitch. This took the slack out and made the trailer tow great. Here are a couple of pictures of the modifications.

A small update for anyone reading this in the future, I will be buying a hitch. Took it out on the interstate this weekend and you can definitely tell a difference with the trailer behind this truck. The truck handled it well, but it could have been better. The winds were slight to moderate and truck traffic was minimal. You could feel the truck "wandering around" in my lane and I seemed to always be making small adjustments to keep the truck where I wanted it.

I will make an update after installing a hitch.......maybe this winter.
