Welcome to JOF
Yes, IMO a properly configured 1/2 ton pickup can tow a 267BHS....., "properly configured" is key.
Not all 1/2 ton's have the same Payload Capacities, so I would recommend if considering a 1/2 ton look for one that is configured (body style, axle gear ratio, etc.) giving you maximum Payload Capacity. Depending on your personal TV/TT loading habits, "available" Payload Capacity could become an important factor when you consider that a TT's loaded tongue weight is subtracted
from the TV's available Payload Capacity. Figure 13% to 15% of a loaded TT's weight for your loaded TT tongue weight..., for enhanced TV handling of the 30ft long 267BHS.
On the subject of TV/TT sway..., a properly matched TV/TT combination (within specified weight limits), and a properly sized/adjusted WDH shouldn't incur any sway under normal towing conditions. Sway control should be looked at as a means to manage/control a sway event should one arise, and all the WDH's mentioned in this thread thus far will do so when properly sized/adjusted (w/integrated sway control or a friction sway control arm). Some sway issues can be the result of a poorly adjusted WDH, trailer towing tongue high, and/or over-loading.
