So it raised the front of the TT allowing the wind to give more lift like a wing so to speak however the added tension keeps it down. Makes sense. I will be taking my TH on its first trip this week end. Unfortunatly it will not have my toys in it to get a feel of how it will will actually perform under a full load. Its a camping only trip for the Family. The following weekend will be the test. It will have my Sand rail and in it. I will consider that one its maiden voyage.

I have a 2005 F-150, and just finished pulled our 831QBSS fully loaded, and the truck pulled it fine. But as mentioned earlier, you do not want to pull with out sway control. When those 18 wheelers start passing you, or when the wind picks up and blows from the side, you will be glad you had that sway control.

Well Guys I took the Toy hauler on its first fully loaded run this weekend. It had a 1700# Sandrail in the back of it along with 3 bags of firewood, a 50# tool box and 30 gal of water in the tank. I installed the air bags and set them at 20 PSI along with the Equalizer hitch. I feel that the air bags helped in that i did not have to have as much tension on the Equalizer spring bars. It will also help prolong spring life. All in all it pulled fine. It was a windy day and I had very little movement in the rig. So far Im pleased with the arrangement. BTW on the return trip I added 2 "V" bar tires (for the sandrail) in the back of the F150 bed and aproximatly 100# of Wellsville mud on the Sand rail.

What type of gas mileage did you guys (kskwash & Odyknuck) get with your set ups? We're getting ready to purchase our first TT, and we're going to go with an ultralight in the range of 27'-31' and 6500lbs loaded.

I have not checked the mileage however I would say it was less than 10. Like the old saying goes "You gotta pay to play"
