My plan is to see how the friction device works this season. Depending on the results, go to a full WD set up next year.

Hope you have a good trip!

Halfway to estes park. I must say the Curt mfg. friction sway control works very well. The liberty on the other hand, meh. Need more power. I was running about 3000 rpm and only hitting 65mph. Gas mileage was about 11 mpg.

Overall it was an ok ride though. Looking forward to the mountains tomorrow!

Everytime I rent an economy car at the airport in Denver and tell them I'm traveling to Estes Park they try to talk me into a midsize car . There are some pretty steep grades as you get into the Rockies. Have a safe trip. Enjoy!

Ok,
It’s been a busy week at work so I haven’t been able to share our first ever camping experience. We journeyed about 60 miles away, not far but far enough. Towing went well, had expected sway with the big rigs passing but nothing unreasonable (‘11 Skylark, ’11 Jeep Liberty Reese SC, WD hitch). Averaged 14mpg @ 55-60mph.

Got set up with minimal questions going through my head but had several offers from other campers to “ask anytime”. Couldn’t ask for nicer people!
Had hot water, so I got that right and with the heat we’ve experienced in Illinois this year had AC without a problem. #1 item we forgot at home…. the deep woods off! Camping store had some (obviously) and wasn’t much more expensive than at Wal-Mart! Found a couple defects, cracked faucet in the sink, bad lock cylinder in an outside storage latch put it on our warranty list.

The TT was everything we had hoped; with just the two of us and the dog we had plenty of room. Need to re-arrange some of the items stored, seemed functional when we packed but will get it right in time.
We've already planned our Labor Day trip, going to journey about double the distance and can’t wait for the end of the month to get here!

Added a couple pictures in the photo album for your viewing pleasure, thanks to everyone for the tips, they have been great.
