I recently purchased a 2012 Ford F150 Supercrew with max trailer tow package which offers a towing capacity of 11,200 lbs. We also purchased a Jayco Jay Flight, model 32TSBH travel trailer with the following specifications Unloaded Vehicle Weight 8,075 lbs, Dry Hitch Weight 940 lbs, Gross Vehicle Weight Rating 10,500 lbs and Cargo Carrying Capacity 2,425 lbs. Were interested in a weight distribution system with sway control possibly. After researching the information, we believe that the Strait-Line Weight Distribution System w Sway Control - Trunnion Bar - 12,000 lbs GTW, 1,200 lbs TW Code RP66084 is our best option. Can you please confirm that this correct? Secondly, the F150 comes with trailer sway control so Im wondering whether we should indeed get the weight distribution system with the dual cam sway control or whether we can do without the dual cam sway control. Is there an added benefit to having the sway control included with the weight distribution system or will it interfere with the sway control system that comes with the F150 truck. Lastly, I consider myself a fairly handy individual so I was wondering if you would recommend that I install the weight distribution system myself. The main benefit that I see in installing it mayself is that it will allow me to learn more about the systme and connectivity to the trailer and truck.
