I was quickly initiated into the trailer towing club as the wind was blowing 40+ mph all the way to Springfield, IL. I got quite a work out!!! And my wife was wondering if we made a mistake in buying a trailer.

Now on Sat. and Sunday with no wind, the trailer pulled like a dream!!!!

Congratulations on the new trailer. You didn't mention type of hookup package so would like to offer this suggestion. When we were towing trailers in the early years, we always used a stabilizer bar between the vehicle and trailer. helped a lot with wind control. On a large trailer such as yours, Two stabilizers, one on each side of trailer hitch. anyway have fun and explore America!
