I do not have a WDH. My hitch is factory installed and I use the bar with 3 different size balls. The tongue is just the factory tongue, no special add ons. I have been looking at sway control bars, but have added nothing yet.

50 - 60 Mph OK
anything over I had had sway & bounce,
White knuckles & hitting the brake control at times, not happy.
I'm running races but 10 - 15 less than everyone else is a danger I feel.
So on the way home I took slower routes.
Never had this with other trailers, but was always able to install a WDH.
I guess I'm going to have to get my thinking cap on & figgure out how Jayco wants a WDH unit mounted on my trailer.
End of rant for now !!!
We do love this camper !
Were you able to resolve the installation issue?

Haven't done anything with it yet. I need to take it in for some warranty work & will ask again. I was up to the dealer a week ago nothing new. I'm not happy with them at all . It's my 3rd trailer from them also.

Could you post a pic maybe we can see something the dealer may have missed.

Also I am going to order this http://www.makariosrv.com/e2-fastway...ar-94-00-0800/

No chains, easier set up and integrated sway control.

I've been using a Blue Ox SwayPro Hitch with my X20E and it's been great. The sway control is due to the shape of the WD bars and hitch design rather than using a friction bar. It's easy to hook up and we haven't had any issues. The biggest problem is that the hitch is bulky and you won't want to drive around with it attached to the TV.

I would drive without a WD and sway control.

Tahoes, Suburbans, and pretty much all SUVs have soft suspensions. Built more for ride quality than doing real work. I wouldn't even consider towing with these without w/d. To me its a "no-brainer". I used a w/d hitch with my Kiwi 17a and my '95 Burb when I had it.

When we bought the Tahoe we were told its basically the same frame & suspension as the chev. 1/2 ton pick up 4x4. The ride was just as nice in my silverado 4x4 as the Tahoe.
As far as using the WDH, the salesman at the RV dealer told us several times "oh, I'd just drop it on the ball and go"!! Their shop tow vehicle is a Tahoe just like mine. He said that when they pick pick units up from Jayco that's how they do it! So as far as a "no brainer" I was just going on what my dealer/sales person told me. I've used A WDH last 4 campers I've had over the past 20 some years.
