It was setup with a full water tank and I will probably travel with only 1/4 tank so loaded it will be close to correct ( I hope! ). Driving home it was one hand, four finger at 55 to 60 mph on two lane highway. Opposite direction semi's were a non event, couldn't feel them. Will need to wait to find out the effect of same direction passing semi's on 4 lane highways. This is with a 2014 Silverado 1500 with 5.3 V8 and tow package. Plenty of power for level roads, won't get into mountains till probably next year. Love the power stabilizers, worth every penny. No problems found on walk through, looking forward to first trip! Dan
We have the same trailer (Rockwood version), truck, and hitch.
You will feel the semis some as the come up on your side but once you learn to anticipate it and adjust for it, it's not a big deal.
We just finished a 1,200 mile trip and it towed great, even in the Smoky Mountains. Like Wmoses, 60 mph seems to be the place to be.
We lived in it for three weeks and my two year old and I were in it most weekdays while my wife was at work (weather was hot and nasty). Plenty of room!
Our shower did start leaking while we were on the trip. We discovered it when water started running out into the kitchen! Ruled out drain and the nozzle/knob panel. It only leaks when water is hitting the left wall so we were still able to use it. It's now at the dealer waiting to be fixed.
Overall, we love our trailer!
