So we took out our new 26BH this weekend for the first time. We had a mix of weather from mid 60's to snow. Still we had a great time in the trailer. Everything worked the first time and we had a great experience. Too bad I can't say the same thing for the trip there and back. Here are my issues:
1. Rear bob from the suspension. Wow...with the FW tank full and the gear loaded it seems like the back end was so squishy and bounced with every bump. We never hit the bump stops though.
2 The return home was not as bad but with the wind the truck seems to be driving on marbles. I would say a pucker factor of 8 (on a scale of 1-10). The trailer was blown from around even with the anti sway control on.
Here are a few things I would think I could do to help the issue:
1.) buy a 3/4 truck (not really an option at this point)
2.) New Shocks. Truck has 50k miles and stock shocks.
3.) Buy new tires. The one on there now are not LT rated to handle the load. This might be the side to side sway I feel from the truck.
4.) add an air bag or something similar to the truck to help the rear end from bouncing.
The trailer was loaded evenly and a max of 500lbs in gear. I made the wife pack light for the first trip.
Can anyone make a suggestion on which to try first?
