So they put a gooseneck hitch on because the truck had the ball on it. Well now I found out you can get a cushioned one so now we have to spend another 5 to 6 hundred dollars for an adapter.
Put shocks on the trailer. If you want, I will email you the dwgs for the bolt on mounts you will have to fabricate.

We do experience slight chucking on those god-awful concrete road sections that are uneven... I40 west of OK City has been the worst for us!
The air bags and also the TrailAir flex pin seem to dampen it... I have been behind other 5ers that were doing much worse. I also think the air bags have improved crosswind stability.
