I used the info from that website to find that I had a bent spindle. I spoke with a number of truck alignment shops but no one would touch it. I called Dexter and ordered 2 new axles and swapped them out myself.

WOW! Lots to digest. First, you mentioned the hitch is the same as used on last trailer? Is it possible the hitch is not rated high enough?
TT sway is or has always been part of the TT experience. I think at this point in time I would measure hitch to axle distances and see if possibly Lippert welded the axles on wrong.


If you not running E-Rated Tires, changing to them will improve your towing 100%.
Turns out my F-250 had Goodyear passenger Wranglers factory installed. WTH?
A couple of years ago I had a Grey Wolf that was a problem child behind my truck.
Finally I put some E-Rated tires on my truck. Tamed it right down.

The other thing that eliminated problems was I took off my Equalizer Hitch, and I installed it myself. It had been installed by an 'expert' at the dealership...
When I put it on, I did it right. I adjusted for height and pitch ect...
When I was done my problems were gone.
