I am considering installing either a rear trac bar or sway bars. My question is what are the pros and cons and which one would be best for my W22 chassis

Do you have a sway problem or a tracking problem?

The problem I have is commonly called the tail wagging the dog. This is more profound when I have a full fuel load

For that I would recommend a rear trac bar.

I had the same problem so I installed an Ultra Rear Track bar, now it's a real tight ride.
One thing I noticed is when camping and the jacks are extended I'm not getting much movement, is this possible Mike?

It's very possible,it ties the rear axle to the frame so no side movement occurs.Without a trac bar the rear axle can be affected by side movement,the only thing holding it is the spring shackle bushings.

The pros are improved handling, The cons... Well, To be honest I don't know any save the cost.

And I agree, the track bar will most likely help

Track bars (Pan-hard bars) control wag (Side to side sway Sway bars control side to side TILT (rocking) I put both a Blue True Center steering control and a Davis Tru-Trac on my W-22 and now it drives nicer than my car.
