Mine has rode nicely on both trucks with the Reese hitch, no sway or bounce. I crawled under ours right after we bought it and checked all the plumbing and wiring access holes and found they were all sealed very well. Have never had any rodents in it nor had anything chewed on yet. I did take a bunch of plastic ties and secure all the loose hanging wiring and hoses up to the frame. On a side note I just ordered a set of tires for mine (185/80R 13) and had a heck of a time finding a set with a Date code less than a year old. Local tire dealer could not find a set of Goodyears that would be available before mid June to mid July. Since we are heading out in early June I had to settle for a set of Carlisles.

I own an EXP 213, year 2010. I tow with a F150 4x4 crew cab full doors. It is fully loaded. I have towed with full fresh water, front bunk area loaded with chairs, sewer drain hoses in a box, a large tote box with all camping gear (screened tent for over table, lanterns, ax, shovel, etc. ) around 100 lbs of stuff, I can still lift it into area. All our cloths, food, and refer loaded. In the truck I carried three boxes of jumbo wood, kindling, two 6 gal. jugs of water, generator, Weber Q100 Bar-B-Que, stand, paddles, life jackets, and two 15'+ kayaks. No weight distribution was needed. I did have a sway control. Truck sat level. It does have a tow package on it and pulls and drives great.

I simply have no idea how you did that. I have a 2015 X213, 2015 F150 FX4 with max payload package, and with 1000# bars drawn all the way up I can just get it level. That's with just linens, toiletries, and some kitchen items in front of the axle. Tongue weight pushes over 800#. For all I can tell, the freshwater tank is over the axles, not behind. It's only the water pump under the front dinette. Bad design by Jayco. I'm gonna move the spare to the rear bumper, but that's just 35# or so. Might run with just one propane tank, but that's a pain. I'd load the area under the rear slide with cinder blocks if it wouldn't put me over weight!

Anyone else have suggestions?
