Just got mine a week ago and hauled it first day 443 miles with the load leveler/anti sway hitch installed at the dealership with an F150 XLT crew cab small V8 and it towed great! There was very little sway and stayed right up with the trucks on the highway. We shall see what it tows like when I get my trike in there.

I've had mine over a year, no major issues, entertainment completely replace, couch cushion replaced really that is it. Of course I don't go looking for trouble either, did see where I need to add some caulk on the front edges last night, ill take care of that tonight.

I have hauled my HD Trike (1200 lbs) for short distances on the interstate (secondary roads are just fine) and over 65 mph I don't feel safe. But I read somewhere that we shouldn't travel faster than that with a trailer anyway so I guess it is OK. Only issue in the first month was that a tail light fell off in transport but FR is sending a replacement for it. As far as loading it I raise the tongue and use scrap wood under the ramp and at the edge. Works fine. No other issues so far.

Kind of surprised you didn't feel safe at 65mph, I just went on my 1st trip up and down hills with 1/2 ton Silverado I was running 70+ most of the 2000 miles and I wasn't worried a bit it felt fine. I had 2 Harleys in it and 1/2 tank fresh water. I have the wd/sway bar no chains, worked great.

that is a good idea to keep it down but with a better tire like a e rated 10 ply versus the 8 ply d rated the factory puts on so many you would be able to speed it up a bit but stability and comfort zone is the biggest part. I added 10 ply to mine so that i'm over rated 25% on gvw let alone what I am actually loaded at and i cruise 75 mph with my 295wp no problem. trailer tires are only rated for 65 mph based on load apps there are some nice articles on the manufacturers sites about this.

Just got it Fri. !!!!!! Very stable hauling it back. Only got 8mpg....lol....Trailer brakes seem to jerk a lot when close to stopping. Also, frige seems to take a long time to cool down. Are these normal?

A simple adjustment on your brake controller should take care of that issue for you.

You can slide the plastic thing on the right side fin in the refrigerator up to cool more but yes it is normal for it to take awhile to cool down.
