    Towing a trailer behide Reflection 5th wheel

    I plan on towing my golf cart behind my Reflection 29RS. The back hitch is rated at 300# tongue and 3000# tow. My 12' long trailer is 900#, cart is 900#, tongue weight appx. 200# so I am well within the hitch limits. My question is if anyone has done this do I need to get anti-sway bars? And if so any recommendations? Thanks.

    There have been a few folks over the years posting about towing behind mainly Reflection fivers. Some were pulling a trailer similar to yours yet others pulling boats or enclosed trailers. Years ago we camped next to 4th reflection fiver ever built and he was pulling a 20' or so I/O pleasure boat. In this part of the country, fivers and TTs have been pulling trailers (mainly boats) for decades. In our travels we occasionally see a fiver pulling any one of these type of trailers.

    Factory hitches were not available in the early years models so most folks had a welding shop or dealer do the install or did it themselves.

    None as I recall ever shared any questions or feedback/pictures regarding anti-sway bars.
