I have to admit that a person would likely be best to install the WD/anti-sway hitch combo to be extra safe and secure, as some have alluded to in their posts. Thanks for the input folks!

Something to think about. The brake anti sway only works after it detects sway to correct it. With a proper hitch setup, you are eliminating most sway before it starts, and not after the fact.

Trusting the brake system is putting the cart before the horse.

Agree 100%
Also, using the brake system assumes you have good traction to the road. In heavy rain and wind this may not be true. The proper hitch set-up is much less reliant on traction to the road, if at all.

I have an F150 with the sway built in and also have the WD with anti sway bar. I have experimented with this same question. I find if I am going on a short trip with no highway involved (which never happens unless I am taking the camper for service or to my local dump station) I don't need the sway bars. If I will be on the highway, my trucks anti-sway does pretty well, but the 2 together work great! So I use both.
