Well, after towing with the added trailer weight the trailer did behave a lot better but could really be felt in a cross wind. Being 37' long that isn't too hard to believe!
I crossed over to the dark side and purchased a used ProPride from another member on here. After some minor modifications to the steel plate I had added prior and spinning the tool box 180* to open from the front rather than the back the hitch is installed.
I have only made a 20 mile trip with this setup now to the local scales to confirm a few weights and I can already feel a big difference in how the hitch handles and side loads. The extra clearance while backing up is going to be a huge benefit as well! Playing near home I was able to swing past 90* and still had room to maneuver...
We go out tonight for our first full week of camping
so I will have a better idea as to how this beast of a hitch will handle!
