147x towing

Hi, how does the 147x tow with single axle? I heard they can be bouncy?

I own a 147x and I think it pulls nice....a little bouncy as most single axle anything will be whether it be a popup, a utility trailer, or in this case a tt..... Nothing dramatic or better yet my queen doesn't even notice lol so it can't be too bad

Ours pulls nice too. Having water in the tank definitely keeps some of the bounce out of mine.

and a tandem axle is easier to back up.

I hear they are more prone to sway, but I have towed ours in some windy conditions and ours has never wiggled at all.

My sway was very minimal as well and I tow with a shorter wheel base in a Jeep Liberty.
