RE: Why do I need a W/D or sway control

You probably don't. I wouldn't spring for one if the truck doesn't sag and you have no problems with sway. Whoever told you you needed one was either trying to sell one or has too little TV for their rig. Just my humble opinion. I do not have either TV or trailer like yours. I tow a 21 foot, 5000 GW TT behind a diesel SUV rated to tow 6,000 lbs without a WD or sway control. Works fine. No sway, tows straight as an arrow. I agree with you. My truck and trailer combo tow just fine and I see no reason to spend a grand on something I don't need. Airstream trailers tow better than many trailers because they are low to the ground, well balanced and have low wind drag. I was hoping for more fact than opinion for my question.

Why do I need a W/D or sway control

I have a 2012 F350 diesel pulling a 28ft Airstream trailer. The trailer tows very well and has not noticed any problem pulling that trailer. So why do I need to add a WD or sway control? Ford claims to have sway control that applies brakes in a way to control extreme swaying. Passing 18-wheelers and wind is not a problem. The trailer manufacturer does not provide any clear advice one way or another.
