Skylark in Missouri

We picked up our Skylark FBV in Des Moines on Friday. They filled our fresh water tank for the walk-around demonstration which made for a heavy sloshy trip home. Just have to zip tie a few dangling wires underneath and swap the AV cables for the DVD player.
We camped at Knob Knoster State Park this weekend for our maiden voyage. The leaves are just starting to change colors and the weather was perfect.
We are very happy to be new campers.
I've gotten a lot of useful tips from this forum, Thanks!

Big Sky,
Hey, roaddog here, new member and just about to purchase the FKV! Do you use a weight distribution hitch, if so, what kind. Is it the combination that includes sway control?
Thanks for you reply in advance,
roaddog

I bought the Reese 350 Mini-lite Weight distribution and sway control system for my Skylark, but it does not fit. The bars are supposed to press down on the trailer a-frame but are too long for the Skylarks v-nose. Right now I do not have a WD/Anti-sway system installed.
I just pulled it from Kansas City To Baton Rouge for the Holidays and had no major sway problems but I would still like to find a system for my trailer.

RoadDog, we picked up our Skylark a couple of months ago and the Weight distribution was a bit puzzling but we ended up with the Reese SC Hitch Kit #66153. It's working out great & so easy to put on & take off, I can do it my self!

Take care,
Cyndi

Am on the verge of buying a jayco skylark with front kitchen. Would be pulling it with a 2010 Toyota 4-runner with v6. Would love to hear your impression of the skylark, how it tows, any problems you might have encountered. Also, did you find a weight distribution hitch and if so, who makes it.
Did you get the Cool Cat heat pump, or opt for the roof a/c with furnace. If you have the heat pump how well does it work. Am in NH, so some of the camping nights in New England get a little cool. Since you now have owned it for awhile would be happy to hear your total impression of the trailer.
