Glad to hear you had fun driveway camping.

We place a foam topper (egg carton style) on the mattress and then a quilted mattress pad and that works for us. Some use the memory foam and seem happy with those.

I once had the regular wd hitch with a friction sway bar. Now I have the Equal-i-zer with built in 4 point anti-sway. It's like night and day difference. The Reese Dual Cam receives high reviews as well

Good luck and happy camping!

Yep...I'm in the long range also. Dodge CC longbed with 34' trailer. 55' long and it don't turn sharp! Remember this phrase..."pull thru". If I have to back into a spot, I'm gonna meet some new folks getting them to assist.
I still have a friction sway bar. May just take grhodes advice and check into a new hitch. Has worked fine so far, but sure does make some noise on sharp turns.

I'm afraid the Equal-ier won't help much as far as noise goes. It's got to be one of the worst as far as that goes, but it really works great as far as weight distribution and controlling sway.

Sorry Firedaniel but I had to laugh at the mattress. When I first layed down on mine, my wife asked if it was comfortable. I asked her if she remembered seeing the umpire at a baseball game look at a used baseball, put it in his pouch, and then throw the pitcher a new ball?" She said yes she had. I asked her if she had ever wondered what happened to all of those baseballs because I think I have an idea what they are being used for. I went for a regular queen sized mattress and the only thing I am having troubles with is getting out of bed in the morning. Glad you had a good time. It just gets better and better!!
