Sway/List With 26 Hideout (Flipped Axles)

Hey Everyone - (posting for a friend)

Flipped the axles on 2010' Keystone Hideout right after purchase - couldn't back it down driveway it was so low.

Anyways; I have a 2016 Ram 2500 and I can't seem to get this thing under control passing/being passed on highways!? It's sway - its listing - it's just not what I'm used to!? I know TONs of people 'flip axles' and I went up about 4" but I am not happy at all with the ride! ?!?

Some advice I got was to add shocks and a sway bar on the axles/rear of camper it's self (truck is SOLID) -- Anyone else have any info regarding securing the towability (already upgraded tires/wheels)

Thanks, EJ

Assuming you readjusted your wd/antisway hitch also ?? Higher center of gravity will also increase the sideload on the tires so you might have to consider going to a heavier tire on the truck and trailer.
