ABS light on?

Last week I was towing my 3500# pop-up camper and all of the sudden my ABS light came on. Pulled over and checked fluids or any other signs of brake malfunction. Everything checked out. Proceeded down the road for about 2 more hours and stopped for something to eat. Came out started up the truck and the light was out, drove another 50+ miles with cruise on and all of the sudden the truck jolted cruise kicked off and ABS light came back on. Finished the rest of the trip, got home unhooked the camper and parked the truck. I drove the truck for 1 week now, 36 miles per day and no ABS light on. Any ideas what this may be? I'm thinking rear (VSS) speed sensor? If so where do i get this? Please send a link to where i can buy this.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, rear speed sensor. $25 on ebay. Mine went about 6,000 miles ago. Also my dads went on his truck.

2 minute change, they seem to go on these rigs.
