As far as the trailer goes, be sure your tires are inflated to the maximum shown on the side of the tire. Lots of times sway can be reduced by ensuring ALL trailer (TT) and tow vehicle (TV) tires are inflated to their maximum.

Beyond that, what is your TV and what weight distribution hitch and anti-sway are you using?

Sway is most often due to hitch, TT, and TV setup issues. By addressing those issues, sway can be a non-issue.
I have made sure the tires of both the truck and trailer on right on for air pressure. I'm using a pro series weight distribution system with a 750 tongue weight spring bar. When the trailer was weighed the tongue weight was 750lbs. Thinking about upgrading to the 1000 lb spring bar. The other question is that my 1500 gmc is maxed out at 7100lbs. 7000 is the max GVWR. Puzzled.

IDK what to do...
IMHO a ladder is a must for me. Factory installed. Will not look at a camper without one.

Bruce... just want to run it by ya. You are more than likely up to speed on this point but just want to run it by ya, It seems as if something people overlook sometimes is having their towing "setup" correct. By this I mean having the tongue at the correct height when setting on the hitch. And then having the sway system in the correct configuration. Also, having the front of your TT too high will cause you problems a 100 times out of 100. If that is not all correct you will for sure have sway issues. I would bet that your dealer helped you with all that though. Good luck Bruce and don't let it get the best of ya.
