Taking them I out, relocated inside weight and moved the axles forward a little, but it still would still rock & roll and scare the daylights out of us.
I started with a 1957 rental trailer (no toilet, just a plywood cutout with a plastic bag under it, ice box, propane light etc) with my parents. Then in 1958 they special ordered a 18' KenCraft (full one piece fiberglass roof, pressure water system, instant water heater and shower). In 1968 I got my first TT, a well used 16'er, don't even remember the brand now. Never been without an RV of some kind since.
