The lynx blocks did great, and the tip on hand tight plus 1-2 turns was awesome. I appreciate that. The grease on the WD bars helped the noise. I also took the tip and leveled it out really well using the floor infront of the fridge, then put stick on levels on LF and RR. Thanks again.
I do not at all doubt that longer wheel base feels better. On a side note, the short wheel base was handy for getting backed into a tight spot..haha. I was verrryyy impressed with the little Explorer though. My first trip was about 15 miles of highway and 4-5 miles or narrow lane, curvy hills, and it was pretty darn smooth. The 3.5 ecoboost with six speed auto has more than enough guts. I really feel that the Explorer (power wise) pulled this TT better than our 2003 Tahoe pulled a utility trailer with camping gear (about 3000# total). According to CAT scales I'm within 20# of unloaded weight on front axle and still under gross on rear axle by 250# or so. DW and I have concluded most trips will be a caravan with DD's and luggage in the Jeep Liberty, simply because on the scales I'm right at Combined GVWR without the DD's. I'm a generally cautious person. But I have to be honest, as good as it pulled, I'm darn tempted to just load up and go. I know if I did I'd be over on Combined GVWR, but it would be over on the trailer, not on the TV axles. But, I suppose to be cautious, we'll caravan. We did talk about a bigger TV, I have a 95 F-150 I could sell off. But if I have to give up my little pick up, I want to be sure I have enough. The 26BH has a max gross of 7000# combined with 1000-1500# of passenger/cargo in the TV, I'd need a 3/4 ton chassis to know I was good to trailer max, and to carry the whole family (6-7 people) So, that puts me in a 3/4 Suburban (hard to find) or an Excursion. Or a heavy van I guess. We'll just see how bad caravaning turns out.
