Try it without the extension.

Ray,

My Jeep Wrangler Unlimited wiggles a bit also, but I think it is because the width is so much narrower than the Moho.

Hope this helps.

John

Some people have found they can help a wandering problem by attaching a bungee cord from the steering wheel to someplace inside the toad like the seat frame or other stable attachment point.

With a receiver plus an extension, you may have significant wobble in the draw bar. One of the hitch stabilizers that Dan L mentioned might help. Or one of dozens of others on the market.

Jeeps, tend to do that I"m told.

The 1992 Lumina APV I towed followed like .. Well, let's just say "Like it should"

Have the alignment checked, tell the tech you tow it 4 down. Suggestion. Avoid 20 year old techs.. find someone who started back when cars had 8 very big cylinders and gas was a quarter a gallon or less.
