You're talking about I-65 eh! That trip last year at this time, enroute to Pensacola, is what convinced me to start upgrading the suspension on the RK 5th wheel. Found most of my kitchen utensils in the bathroom. Shock absorber kit first change.

We have an '06 Dodge Ram 2500. It's a TRUCK, it's made to PULL, and it does a fine job at that! We know it's a truck, and it isn't going to ride like a Beemer. We've been on our fair share of bad roads. It comes with the territory of pulling a TT. On really bad roads, we try to see if other lanes are as bad; if they are, we just slow down a bit and carry on. Not much you can do, other than finding a different route that may have its own set of problems. We had a '16 Chevy 1500 a few weeks back for a loaner. They made it ride like a car. It was a nice ride, but pulling even our enclosed cargo trailer, the thing was horrible on handling and cornering. It "floated" all over the road! We'll take our '06 workhorse any day. Could we make it better? Probably....
