It was not a big wag but way more than I would feel comfortable towing with. It looked to me that a good wind blow at a higher speed would have it wagging fast.

We both took the same exit and as I came up along side him at a stop light, I noted the trailers tongue was sitting WAY to high and it had no propane tank on it to boot....... unlevelled trailer and lack of tongue weight a good combo for sway.
