When I had a pup, I always used one. Made it easy to forget the trailer was back there.

What size popup and what tow vehicle? I had a 1988 Jayco 1208 and a 2004 Dakota before my current setup. The popup was on the larger side and with the mid-size truck I never had any sway whatsoever. I can't imagine needing one for a popup unless maybe you have one of the big forest river high wall units and/or a smaller vehicle.

You can never go wrong with a weight distribution/sway bar setup.. it might be over kill but your family's safety is paramount right?

When we got the tandem axle Jayco in 1992 my uncle was driving on one of the first trips. We were pulling with an 88 Suburban. He tried all manner of ways to get it to sway, just to get a feel of how it pulled. It would not do anything but pull straight as an arrow. Nothing would make it sway, nothing at all.
