another new guy!

Hello All;

Just purchased a 295 surveyor sport, we traded in our 214 aerolite cub which we loved but simply outgrew...

I tow with a dodge ram 1500 4wd so should be good weight wise.

Kind of concerned about length it's the longest thing I ever towed! I got
comfortable with towing the cub after 3 years so I hope that happens here
with the surveyor.

You will be fine towing, just remember take your, take a breathe, and remember it will catch more wind. Maybe install two sway bays.

Db,
to the forum & Congratulations on the new TT!

Many happy miles to you and yours!

Have you given any thoughts to switching to a WD Hitch that has built in sway-control?

John

Thanks John;

Not very familiar with them....Notice any difference? I don't do a lot of
highway towing.

DB,
I have only had the Reese Dual Cam...never had a non-sway WD hitch.

In my experience, it has made things very "comfortable" while towing. Seems to keep everything "in it's place".

There are many on this forum with the Reese Dual-Cam, and many with the Equal-i-zer. Both seem equally well-liked. Both have built-in anti-sway. A quick search on "WD Hitch" in the forum will result in MANY threads...

John
