Do I need stabilizer and anti-sway hitch?

Crawl under a typical unibody car. Now crawl under a RL.

There's a big difference.

Or take a look at the pics of these unibody SUVs

Now look at the ones for a ridgeline.

Cindy, your first article isn't even about the Ridgeline. Your second article clearly states it's a unibody. It is what it is. Not a body on frame truck. Own it. It's payload is below a 1500/150 for a reason.

OP sorry for the derail. Yes use a WDH with sway control. Blue Ox makes a very nice one.

That is true, but you could say that about any improperly set up WDH and\or improperly loaded trailer.
