Hi we are owners of 2013 Whitehawk 31DSLB pulling with Nissan Titan. Our trailer has sway and supposedly we have hitch sway system. Does anybody else have sway issues?

Hmmm, according to Jayco's website, the 31 DSLB has a gross weight of 8200 lbs., meaning it will throw about 1,066 lbs of tongue weight onto your TV. Looks like the total GVWR for most recent Titans is around 7100 lbs. IF your truck weighs less than 6000 lbs, that leaves you a bare margin of carrying weight.

Best thing to do is find the nearest CAT scale and weigh your TV (Titan) with full load of passengers and gas, and see what it weighs. IF it weighs more than 6000 lbs, you likely will be exceeding the recommended GVWR as soon as you hook the trailer to your truck. This does not include any cargo in the truck, etc.

see this thread for more information than you likely will want:

Bottom line is that even the Jayco White Hawk "ultralites" in the longer series (longer than 28') weigh more than most of today's 1/2 ton trucks are rated to tow.

Again, best advice is to weigh your TV and subtract that weight from its GVWR (usually on a sticker inside the driver's door) to see how much more weight you can safely throw on it. In your case, if the difference is less than 1000 lbs, that may very well explain the sway issue.
