What kind of WDH setup did you go with ?? That might need to be adjusted.

I went with the Equalizer 8000 pound WDH with built in sway control. The owner of Dandy RV himself was talking with me when it came time to show me how to set up the hitch. He and the 5 year experienced tech walked me through it. It was set up so that it looked perfect. If we would have adjusted it in either direction (up or down) by the holes provided by Equalizer, it would have been off a little.

I think the hitch was set up fine (but then again.. who am I to know with my limited experience) I just think that the coil springs on the Suburban are at their limits with this trailer (plus the 120 pounds of junk I keep in slide drawers in the back!). Don't get me wrong, it isn't "floating" all over the place or bouncing around badly... I am just sensitive to changes in the driving characteristics of my vehicles and I noticed it was "squishy" feeling.

I have read others on other forums with the same setup noticing the same thing. They installed AirLift 1000 bags in their coils and made the rear firm again.

Thank you for your response!
