Hi From Florida

Hi, we just purchased a travel trailer last week. 100 mi. trip home was white knuckle. Our first one and have learned lots ' some the hard way' and hope to learn more the easy way.

I see lots of experienced Rv'ers here and will appreciate your help.

If you can afford it....get a good anti sway system such as the Hensley hitch. It will remove the white knuckle and you will drive with one hand on a windy day.

Thank you and God Bless you too. I tried to multi quote to both of you, guess I'll have to learn how to do that too.

You can do this in your signature or post with any questions you might have on the setup of your rig along with the problems you experienced.
