Ok here goes. PDI went well, didn't really find anything wrong with the unit except for the screen door wouldn't open from the inside. No biggie. The trailer is light. GVWR was 6402# so I knew the F150 wouldn't have a problem pulling it. Where I ran into a snag was when I was getting out my WDH & anti-sway bar.
1. I didn't realize I or the dealer would have to drill into the A-frame. For whatever reason, I thought it somehow clamped on. Timewise I wasn't prepared for this and had a friend and my father-in-law with me.
2. My anti-sway bar that my bro-in-law gave me for free was missing the piece that attaches to the trailer. I had the little ball that goes to the hitch but was missing the rear part. I notified the dealer about this, and he said one of the techs would be out to help me find the part so we can get it installed properly.
Well after 30 mins of waiting for someone to come out, I decided to just hook up to the ball and let it rip. I figured I'd be ordering an Andersen WDH anyways, so I didn't want waste any more time. We hooked up the trailer and off I went.
I took it really slow, around 45mph until I got a feel for it then slowly crept up speed. Winds were around 20mph with gusts about 35mph or something like that. It felt weird, but nothing I or the truck couldn't handle. I did feel EVERYTHING that wen by me though. Even a little hatchback honda that passed me gave the rig a bit of a shove. Not sure if this was lack of a wdh or what.
I also noticed a bit of tug of war so to speak between the TT & TV. This is probably due to tailwind, but I really could feel the TT "push" the TV & vice versa. It wasn't anything major, so I wasn't worried. I just figured it was because I didn't have wdh setup.
But everything went smoothly and I made it home and tinkered with everything all night. And now, some pics:
Just made it home, having a cold one with our friend and father-in-law. I forgot to take pics with it hooked up:
Parked and somewhat opened up:
