No kidding! We just finished an 11,000 kms Trans-Canada trek. The R-pod and Jeep ran flawlessly the whole trip. A great combo!

I didn't get a picture of the dealers vainglorious attempt at WDH setup. Suffice it to say it was atrocious.

Here's my first attempt, which rode pretty well.


And the current setup, which rides very well.

Nice looking rig. The running board looks pretty level on your truck so wdh looks close.

Thanks. I was amazed at how many different adjustments there are on the WDH. Ended up with max washers and lowered bar hanger brackets to level the truck and fiddling around with the ball height for the trailer attitude. Was able to basically eliminate porpoising without resorting to bags.

It took us most of a morning to get it towing perfectly. We kept testing it on the interstate nearby as we adjusted it at the dealer. It is very relaxing to tow when setup correctly and can be unnerving if it is off.

Sorry. Not that many of the new truck hooked up. The last is of a beauty of an old ford that was towing a nice newer and larger 5er in the campground we stayed at.

Hooked up and waiting for morning. Silver Wind Rv Park, Silverton Tx. Parked between the cabins to cut the wind hitting us broadside. Man the wind gets up there in the TX panhandle. 55 mph in some of the storms last month.
