    Welcome to the forum Kingman. What are you towing with ? Are you just wondering if a 5th wheel will sway? I never had a problem with the one we had. You may feel a litle when being passed with some semis.

    That doesn't sound like much truck for that trailer. That could be the problem. Have you ever had the trailer weighed?

    Does your trailer set level when hooked up?
