Towing the Rockwood Fifth Wheel Questions?

We have a 2010 Rockwood 8286WS fifth wheel and a 2006 Chev 2500HD pick-up with a Reese 16K slider hitch and are experiencing a lot of jerking both fore and back and up and down while towing, especially on the concrete interstates. Any recomendations?

Also, I am running about 11 - 12 mpg. How is everyone else doing with a similar set-up?

Your gas mileage is about right IMO for that camper and truck.

What you are experiencing is called "chucking" and is covered completely here:
