Graduation

So leaving tomorrow afternoon for Humboldt State and it is raining again in N. Ca. And they are saying winds 10 to15 and gust of 25 to 30. Have a new 31 ft.. 5th wheel. How bad are the winds going to affect the trailer? Any ideas or am I overly concerned.

Just be careful. Wind and rain make driving more difficult and looking at the weather, it looks like you may be heading into a storm.

10-30 MPH winds are common here in the mountains of PA. It has caused us no concern at all. They're great when a tailwind but sucks gas when a headwind!

Just be careful on rain slick highways.
Especially at first rain where the oils in the road come to the surface.

People in Wyoming call that calm.

We've pulled our last two RV's (TT & 5er) across I-80 in 40+ mph winds and didn't have a problem.
