I understand that when travelling OTR, of course you would use the full setup, that being said, would you think it to be a bad idea to just use the hitch for short moves in an around a campground, or storage area, should I need to jostle our TT around this winter?
Appreciate any input.

Tom, you would not need any sway control unless you were out on the road where wind and turbulances form big rigs would move the back end around. You may even be fine without the weight distribution torsion bars installed for a move in a campground. That would depend on your truck supsension and tongue weight of trailer.

Thanks for the reply RV Wizard.
My question (or concern) is, if damage can be done to the WD hitch if the anti sway bars are not installed, for a short move.
I wouldn't be concerned about the TT swaying during a short move in a CG or storage lot.
Thanks again, Tom

Tom, it won't hurt the hitch to pull it in the campground without the bar being used.

Tom---are you confusing the torsion bars with a sway control device?

The sway control would be in addition to the torsion bars, unless you have the "saddle" type.

Take care
