I would rather be safe than sorry?

Thanks advance for your help and opinions.
we pull ours with a 2016 chevy Colorado, truck has a 7000lb tow capacity with 750lb tongue weight max. we have an E2 wdh, I could pull the TT without it however I am really more comfortable with the wdh.

2014 Chevy Z71

We have a Ridgeline and Honda insists no wdh be used. Why? I have no idea
The back of the truck drops about two inches hitched but the trailer is level . I was worried about floaty front tires. That now is a non worry . We do also have a 46 lb generator and some tools and 2.5 gal extra gas in the truck so it's not badly overloaded there
Your springs in your TV may be different so I can't say you will or won't need a wdh
Sway command is awesome. It does work.
So does a separate brake command in the mountains or on the highway. Some jerk stopped in front of us on I 40 in OK city and backed up to get to his left exit he missed. In the high speed lane

2012 Honda Ridgeline
2016 195 RB

Both well used. Now up to 170 nights camping and 40,000 miles on the TT since purchase.
