Sway and wdh??

I just bought a 2008 jayco 213 and will be towing it with my '99 chevy tahoe. I had a leaf added last year in my Tahoe as I tow a car trailer with it so the capacity is around 7500. I have never towed a travel trailer so this wdh and sway bars are new to me. When I pick up my new 213 do you think I need this style set-up? Thanks.

IMHO, the anti-sway control is every bit as necessary as the WDH. One good blast from a passing tractor-trailer will convince you of that.
