    Did you install a bracket in the bedroom for a TV? Wondering if you were able to obtain a schematic of where the backer board is?

    What kind of hitch do you use to pull your camper with? I am using a fast way E2 round bar... Basically the same as the equalizer brand.

    these longer trailers are really susceptible to wind. mine will stay straight and true in no wind, but strong gusts really move it around. we pulled back across Kansas Sunday in about 30 mph winds (at 104 degrees) and it was a handful. But i felt like I could control it. The Reece dual cam really works hard to keep it in line.

    the other thing to check is tire alingment on the trailer. I notice a lot trailer dog track a little.

    I'm sort of confused due to the fact that I didn't notice any wandering or swaying with our previous camper that was about 2K lighter and 5' shorter...

    Just wanted to see what your thoughts were... seeing as you are one of the few on here that seems to have much for any mechanical common sense and pulls a similar rig.

    I have checked the ball joints and steering, both seem to be tight... I had a friend suggest maybe I had over inflated the tires for the load that was applied, so I dropped the pressure in the truck and trailer tires a bit and began feeling a little heel-toe beginning on them so re inflated to just under max of sidewall... I have since ordered air bags and a sway bar for my truck.

    I noticed the trailer kind of chasing the grooves in the road as well... I also had the JetSki on the back tagging along, but I don't feel that the wandering is any worse than when I towed the camper solo.

    I have got the air bags on yesterday as they just got in, of course after we got home from our 3 hour trip with the camper... and have yet to receive the sway bar...

    Hey do you have a wondering feeling with your truck and trailer in a cross wind? I have a subtle feeling of it and was wondering if just a rear end sway bar would take it out? Just curious since your combo is fairly similar.

    Hello, I was wondering if your 329bhds has a TV hook-up in the master bedroom? I am waiting for my local dealer to get one in so I can see one in person, and no pictures I have found online show one. Thank you, Korey
