Loading TH

Newbie TH owner, I think I made a dumb mistake. Loaded up golf cart on left side of TH and bikes on right side. Think i probably should have loaded golf Carr in middle and bikes on each side. How much does that effect towing? Got about 1000-1100lbs on driver side vs 100 on pass side. Traveling through Florida, dealing with 15mph wind and trailer is all over the place. Itís a pull behind 36í trailer about 12ft tall. 1st long trip and didnít expect to be this bad. Chevy 2500HD duramax with 14k equalizer hitch and sway. Maybe just something I have to deal with being a pull behind

I bet you will find that you do not have enough tongue weight. Moving the stuff from one side to another is not going to help that much.

Need more tongue weight? May fill with some water and see what that does

Light on the nose. If itís a garage model you may be leaving a toy or toy at home.
