TrailHawk Hemi towing 27 foot TT, Blue Ox users?

I've been towing a 27 foot (hitch ball to trailer bumper) 4800 pound UVW travel trailer with a 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk hemi with tow package... it tows pretty well, have been using the Fastway E2 WDH system, but looking for a bit more control of the dreaded "fishtail swaying", especially when semi's pass me on the left side. The E2 WDH is a two-point sway hitch, and the Blue Ox SwayPro WDH is a 4-point system, so I'm guessing that the Blue Ox may control sway a bit better...? Anyone have experience with towing a 27-footer and using the Blue Ox WDH setup on a JGC Hemi? Thanks!

RE: Towing a Geo Pro 19bh

I currently towed an Innsbruck 199dd to Colorado from TX with my 2016 grand Cherokee 4x4 High Altitude. 3.6. Door placard says 6,500 tow capacity for my particular jeep. I weighed all of our stuff loading up the jeep before driving to pick up the rental trailer. 250 lbs of stuff. The Innsbruck is a super light no frills trailer. I had the water filled before leaving, so that added some weight, but was still under 4,500 lbs I estimate. Just two of us riding in the keep, me 220 lbs, her 130. Pulling power was no problem. Even from Durango to Ouray. But I had a minor white knuckle wind experience on I40 coming into Clovis NM from TX. Strong winds out of the south blew me around pretty good. I had just a ball hitch receiver, no special hitch or sway bars. Without wind it tows just fine. But what I've read about the short wheelbase on the GC is true. I was fighting the sway pretty hard. Never felt like it was dangerous enough to pull over, but it was work. In our RV park in Ouray there was a Geo Pro 19 with a grand Cherokee. I noticed it had a special hitch. I meant to chat them up as I'd like to keep my jeep and I've looked at the Geo Pro, but they left already so I wasn't able to get their feedback. I tow with a 2018 Trailhawk JGC V8, get this and you'll be fine:

27 footer vs 32 footer, towing/handling difference?

Been towing a Crossroads 222RB for a few years, it is 27 feet long, 5K UVW. Looking at 32 foot TT's, wondering if there's much difference in towing/handling/managing the extra 5 feet and 1500 pounds? Tow vehicle not an issue, just looking for experience of moving up in length/weight, and if there's any additional hassles... :)
