Good to hear that you are happy with the results.
I too have a half-ton modern truck with more than enough power and tow capacity for my Aerolite 213RBSL. But with the WD hitch, it tows even better!
In my opinion, worth every penny and the additional effort.
Having said that, I still won't use the 1/2 ton for anything farther than a few hours from home. I'll hitch to the bigger truck and enjoy the additional margin of error. (I'm blessed to have that choice, I realize)
Full disclosure: I haven't traveled with the TT for any long distance yet. But I will do as I say if\when I do.
