You can hop under the truck without putting it on jackstands and see what the condition of the sway bar bushings are. I would say that's likely not the problem. Are you pulling with anything in the tanks? Is the trailer level when pulling? Are you still running the original tires? What's the tire pressure in the trailer tires?

Getting the trailer axles aligned will also help with pulling the trailer straight. I know mine are off because of the tire wear I just need to find a shop that can do the alignment.

Haven't checked back in recently, it's been a busy summer so far.

I read a propane line horror story from a blow-out somewhere, also. I see all the stuff ran under the wheel wells. I will definitely have to come up with some protective measures there.

I don't get any sway, but I do have a good bit of bucking from the camper. pretty much any bump in the road translates back to the hitch. That's the only towing issue i have noticed so far.

The only real gripe we have had so far is the hopeless touch-pad thermostat. Any way to change this to the old button style Dometic?

Otherwise, we have camped a couple times so far and it has been a very good trailer. I, too, wish we had the couch vs the dinette. I think we might try to trade it out, but it's livable for now.

So far, so good! Thanks for the replies!

We just picked up a 24PACK14+ the week before Memorial Day. Just got to use it for the first time last week. A very definite upgrade from the pop up I've had for the last 15 years.

The cushions are only slightly better than sitting on the bare plywood. I miss the couches in the last two for comfortably sitting and talking or watching TV. We already have the rear dinette in the garage (with more comforable bench/couches). Don't need 2.

I would bet you can custom order with 7k, but mine are 6k. I am 12k dry and 14k GVRW with about 2k pin.
