Honestly, we would've NEVER let you leave our lot without the Sway Control. New F150 or not. You have a wind sail behind you and you are a target for truckers all over the U.S. They see ya and want to blow by you to see if they can make the trailer walk. Short trips I can see as fine, but not long trips. I believe in peace of mind when traveling.
Had a customer who refused to buy the WD & SC last month. Trailer was very light (used Bantam Trail-Lite). First trip out a truck blew by him, trailer started to walk, spun his vehicle, trailer broke loose and rolled through the median about 14 times. All that was left was the dolly wheel and a frame. We are very thankful the trailer broke away and didn't roll the truck.
BTW, it was the first customer we ever had roll in 37 years. He only got away from here becuase the salesman was new and let him roll without anyone from Management approving it.
NEVER again! Your safety is our main concern.
