Finally got it home!!!

Brought home the new 5er this weekend.. man it's awesome the wife and I cant wait to take it out. one was pretty jerky for about a mile down the road between 55 and 60. but for some reason when i speed up to 60 to 65 it smoothed out alot. is that normal or is that the highway that i felt at first?

congrats on the new rig
as far as bopping around at speeds,
expansion joints?
to light of a pin weight, which most assuredly will go away once you load her up for camping, rule of thumb is 20-25% of the trailers weight on the pin

she does look very sharp
