When I hook up to the Salem and go over 45 mph, the trailer is swaying all over road. I have purchased second set of weight distribution bars, second sway bar and purchased truck tires for rear of SUV. Cannot get control of trailer. Was told by a non Forest River dealer that he thinks that it may be poor design due to super slide and kitchen in front. Both are in front of axle and put loads of weight up front. Can anyone help me? I have a travel trailer I cannot tow.
The best hitch in the world won't overcome improper installation. There's lots of information available on how to set these W/D integrated anti sway units in your driveway without the weight scaling the combo. Scaling the set-up to fine tune later if necessary.
As far a floorplan and a heavy tongue weight, if that's true, your headlights would be in the trees but it wouldn't necessarily cause trailer sway. Low tongue weight is more likelier to cause trailer sway.
For better feedback you need to provide camper year and model, details on your truck and your hitch type.
