Sway Bar necessary for light travel trailer?
So, I bought a light travel trailer over the weekend (president's day sale, yay!)... It's the Forest River Surveyor 305. It's gross length is 34' and height is about 9'6". Dry weight is about 6,500lbs and capacity is 3,000lbs.
I was told I would need a sway bar for this trailer, but I question whether that is the case or not. The trailer is about as aerodynamic as a elephant, so I know wind gusts will cause some sway, but will it be so bad that I have to sacrifice my independent rear suspension by putting on a sway bar?
What do you guys think about this? I have a 2010 F-150 FX2 SuperCrew with the 3.73 gear ratio (11,300lb tow capacity).
To sway or not to sway; that is the question.
