Oh yeah, I forgot one other enjoyable part of the switch from TT to 5er: pretty much no sway while driving! Before we traded, I was gripping the wheel tightly and dreading big trucks, crosswinds, etc while pulling the TT. Made for a nerve-racking trip each time out. We contemplated buying one of those $2500+ anti-sway deals like Pro Pride or Hensley arrow.
But with the 5er, sway is all but gone, and I can drive much less stressed now! I still respect the load - a lotta weight back there, but can tow with peace of mind, a more relaxed grip on the wheel, and don't "feel" every tractor trailer and crosswind we encounter.
Viva la difference!!!
