lt vs p

Go with the 10 ply Lt's. you will get used to the stiffer ride and have a much more stable ride. We had to do that on out 2008 F150 with our Holiday Rambler trailer. Our 2011 F150 did a pretty good job towing our 29' Flagstaff Signature ultralite and P rated Wranglers but I still switched to 10 ply LT's.

make sure your coach is perfectly level when attached to your tow, this is with the sway bars removed. If the coach anf tow are not level at this point, then get that donw first off. Took us two years and many close calls before someone told us what was wrong, bet you are doing the same thing. Do not install your sway bars until after you are sitting flat and level...that is a must, you cannot over load these bars done this way, otherwise you are getting to much lift from them thereby lifting the rear of your tow off the me on this one...nearly got us in real trouble..

bought the 250 to better tow the V-Lite, then upgraded to a 5er.

I will get flamed for this, but turn off the electronic sway control on the truck. It is not designed for those big trailers and over corrects and gives you the wiggles. That, fully aired up tires and correctly adjusted WDH (per the manufacturer instructions) will all make it better. Know it will never likely be perfect. Towing a tongue pull trailer is always going to mean a little movement. The only real way to solve that is to go to the ProPride P3 or Hensley Arrow; they work by correcting the physics.

Is your truck equipped with passenger tires? ( it is a letter P in front of the size) if so if u upgrade to LT tires ( they are more money and ride a little more rough ) but it should fix the problem.
