Hi from Alaska

Hi all! Checking in from Anchorage Alaska. We just got us a 2018 Forest River Wildwood T263BHXL. Have taken the wildwilly (kids named 'er) out every weekend since.

Pulling this thing along with a 2016 F150 ecoboost - have some questions about this (namely this is the biggest thing I've ever pulled, our roads aren't great up here and this weekend was the longest I've pulled it (100 miles) and over 60 is worrisome (not quite the white-knuckle I read about, but)--this about expected with probably 7000 lbs back there fully loaded?). I'll search the forums later for the Roadmaster Active Suspension kit that seems to help.

Anywho, looking forward to all the good advice I can find throughout the forums!

Coming back from a rainy day: Turnagain Pass

Welcome from Eastern Nebraska / Northeast Missouri.

Currently dealing with 6 to 12 inches of hail piled up on some streets in our area.

X2. Need a better understanding of what your actual concerns are. When you say "and over 60 is worrisome", are you talking about 60+ MPH?

Yep 60mph...may just be the roads. As it feels the trailer is kind of hunting for the grove or low spot of the road and the truck gets "wiggly feelin'" and gotta slow it down a bit. It may be normal (for that weight and 1/2 ton truck), but since I've never towed anything this big for many miles I just have no experience to base it on.
