You guys won't hear any disagreement from me regarding weather. But when you start pulling at 60deg and then hit a freak squall after the temps dropped to 30, and your on a limited access highway... What are you gong to do? Those with the "don't pull in weather rule" will have a conundrum. The best thing is to not pull in weather. Check. But if you get caught with pants down, a little experience is a good thing.

Someone mentioned needing a license to pull a 5er. You can't get sway on a 5th I thought. And this thread is about how to handle sway.

It calls for full throttle and start manually braking the trailer till the sway is under control. The tow vehicle must out run the tow.

Looked like not enough tongue/pin weight.

This is a wonderful video demonstrating weight distribution while towing.

I think it should be a sticky.
