Reese double pivot head movement when not hitched

Experiencing (normal?) head movement while driving unhitched. The head bangs left, right, fore and aft during cornering and stops and starts. Is there a way to secure/reduce the head from moving when unhitched? (other than removing the head) Thanks!

Get some big zip ties from Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. and tie the head to the body.

Use bungee cords. Easy to hook/unhook.

I use a rubber tarp strap to hold it in a normal load position. It stays on the hitch.

Yes it is normal. Bungee cords are the quickest fix.
I had a PullRite Slider. You should have heard the bang on that thing. The 1st time it happened I thought I broke a drive shaft or the rear, quickly made a block for it.

if mine is clunking around, i'm not hearing it. but i have a bed cover so that may be masking it. bungee cords are definitely the easiest, quickest fix for that.
