But travelling in a gale (32-63 mph) is the norm here in Southern Alberta...
I've only owned the 5er for about a year, but have lived here all my life (+40 years) and it's rare that there isn't a breeze blowing. Some days are light (<30 mph) and some are quite heavy (>50mph).... It's just how you deal with it... Although I will say that I've been lucky enough over the past year to travel with the trailer on light wind days... Not sure I would feel comfortable on those heavy wind days.
And yeah, head winds I can take.... It's the cross winds that white knuckle me. Even when just in the truck with no trailer on those heavy wind days is enough to make me enjoy a drink after the travelling is done.
