RE: New (maybe) Class A owner and Jeep JK

I am where the OP is but don't have the jeep or MH yet. Still in research and info mode but do have the short list. MH will be a newer but used Newmar Bay Star at 32 ft or less and towing a Wrangler Rubicon to be bought soon. I will be traveling alone with my Bernese Mtn Dog. Present rig is a Ram diesel and a OutdoorsRV TT and is works OK but want the ability to explore more and more room for Berners plus ease of setup. The fear is no ability to back up. I get cold feet over this every day. Once I make the switch there is no going back. A MH is a big $$$$ item that falls like a rock in value. I'll probably just go with all BlueOx system with a Ft bumper on the Jeep designed for a tow bar.

RE: 2 1/2" hitch shank

If you go with a 2 1/2 inch shank and you need the TT moved due to truck failure, you will need to find someone with a class 5 hitch. Keep the 2 inch and use the sleeve. been using mine for 2 years now with no issues.

RE: Going from 4x2 to 4x4

Tires can make a big difference. Even the tread pattern on same size tire. Some tires require more PSI than others to ride correctly. A truck that sits lower can also feel more stable.

RE: My camper is in the river now

Congrats on the new TT. Sometimes in life, things do work out OK.

RE: Rear end bouncing/Equal-i-zer 4-point 10K hitch

On a washboard freeway it feels like my truck is being shook apart by the TT. When not towing the same freeway is not as bad. I would take the tire PSI up to the max cold and see if it makes a difference just to start. Is that 620 tongue weight a measured or on from the factory info. If you really need to add weight you might be able to fill a holding tank in front just to see if that helps. Then if it does add the weight.

RE: New owners of Blue Ox Sway pro who previously owned Reese...

Great read. I am looking to replace my 14 year old worn EasyLift with the friction bar. I really like the simple Sway Pro as it has no pins to loose and is an easy and quick set up for the one night stops. I questioned the sway control of it but looks like it works. I tow where there is wind so that is important.

RE: Trailer frame breakage

E mails and pictures to everyone you can think of with respect and requests. Follow them up with phone calls. E mail does not go away and they know it. It can also be forwarded and posted. Do not touch it till you get their answers. Be nice but let them know you want it fixed and fixed now.

RE: Trailer tire running hotter and bulging?

The TPMS by TST would have told you the tire was getting hot as it has a temp read along with PSI.

RE: New Truck = Bigger Receiver = Unexpected Problem

Just because the rear springs can take the weight and there is no rear sag it does not mean that the front is not getting lighter. It might not be enough to matter but it is happening.

RE: Has Evergreen Closer down?

Sunnybrook, a very nice trailer was bought by Winnebago so Sunnybrook could build their TT's. Seen a 2016 Sunnybrook lately?

RE: New Truck = Bigger Receiver = Unexpected Problem

Use a good WD hitch with the bars adjusted correctly. With no bars when you hit a good dip in the road you will not like the ride. If you get a 2 1/2 inch shank and someone else without a 2 1/2 inch hitch has to move your TT you are done. Keep your shank and get a sleeve.

RE: Any horror stories with a Blue Ox Sway Pro, new design....

It's time for a new hitch for me. Ram 2500 and 31 ft TT, 7500 pounds with 1000 -1100 pounds TW. Looking at the BO and EQ. The BO is simple, quiet, not a lot of parts but not sure about the ability to stop sway or bounce. The EQ has pins and can make some noise and won't be as quick and easy to hook and unhook. But the EQ looks to have good sway and bounce control. The BO costs more. If the BO works great with bounce and sway then I go with that one as it is quick and simple. But don't want to regret it. Any advice from those that own them?
