Gwncanuck… we purchased a ’11 skylark (21FBV) last July and tow it with a ’11 Jeep Liberty (3.7L V6, 3.73 gear ratio) rated at 5000lb with the towing package (which we also have). We have the Reese trunnion bar hitch w/sway control and for the most part are very pleased with the performance. I can’t make the statement that I don’t know the Skylark is behind the TV, but towing isn’t the issue. We do feel some sway with higher than normal crosswinds and to some degree when semi’s pass.
I’m thinking of looking at my options on “tweaking” my current set-up or evaluate other options, my wife gets nervous with the slightest abnormal movement from the TT.
Overall we love the camper and our Jeep. It’s primarily my wife, me and our ****er spaniel. From time to time our 21yr old will join us and we have plenty of room with her too.
Enjoy your Skylark!
