Toyota Tundra measurements WDH

Here's my measurements of my 2012 Toyota Tundra DC with my 2015 19RR Camper loaded with 2/3 water and all our stuff less Gold wing.
Measured :Ground to fender

Unloaded-36" 1/2 inch frt
38" rear
Hooked up with no WDH
37" frt
36 rear
Using WDH 3 links
36" 1/2 frt
37" rear
No sway but can feel it a little when vehicle pass (P rated @ max psi) - no biggie just looking for some info on good/no good.

Had my first long pull 150 miles one way 8-9 mpg and very happy with both the Tundra and the 19rr. Greensburg,pa to mckean,pa (Erie KOA)

Erie KOA was very nice and peaceful cause they do not allow any motorized camp ground people haulers.

Thanks for any input.....

Looks pretty good to me...might be able to reduce sway with a friction sway control

Not too bad. It would be nice to get the back end closer to the unloaded numbers but some WDH systems will not fine tune to that extent.

Gold Wing? The Honda variety?

Yep. Try and get more weight on the front (down a 1/2) and see where the rear settles in at. If the rear is pulled up 1/2 (37 1/2) then your truck will have the same level stance as it has unloaded. Your TT needs to be level traveling down the road as well.

Your measurements are good. The Tundra has a softly sprung rear end (because most folks don't haul stuff all day, every day) and P tires to improve the ride. So, your rear end drop is normal and you can forget it.
As soon as you put LT tires on your truck (I run Michelin), handling will improve.
As for your mileage, you must be ballin' the jack. I pull a heavier trailer with my 2010 and get 11 mpg driving around 60 mph.

Im doing 65*70 mph in Pa - lots of hills- (Virginia is flat j/k) - not yet @ 40k on odometer yet so It still needs a couple more to get broken in. Dont forget I carry a Honda Goldwing in the camper too @ 822 lbs dry + fresh water 2/3 full @266 lbs not including all the sh*t that just has to come with the outing.
I also just had new tires put on the day before so maybe it will improve - doesn't matter to me just happy everything does what it should be doing and that's working well. I was going of off computer also so that's probably different than by hand calculating.

Thanks for the reply
