I agree rustic, sway control will make it much better to control. Right now i have a hand me down hitch that my dad had but no longer needs an it didnt have sway on it.I do take my time towing im deff no speed demon like some people are when towing.. I plan on up grading it to a reese dual cam this winter, just want to explore all my options before i do an drop some cash on something that i wont be very happy with..Everyone here really seems to like the dual cam so i may just get new bars an the cams since i have a good hitch head..

The Reeses makes a world of difference

The Reese dual cam was worth the money and rustic is right its a long trailer and the sway control made a huge difference.

If you do decide to go with the Reese Dual Cam, keep in mind that your existing spring bars "may" be compatible with the HP Dual Cam upgrade kit (and assuming that your existing bars are rated correctly for the loaded TT tongue weight).

Anyway, when you get to the point of incorporating your sway control device (any brand), I'm sure we can help if you have any install or adjustment questions.

We have the 29L also and we love it! With 4 kids and a dog, it gets a little busy inside but there is plenty of personal space. We had a minor problem with air duct blockage for the rear bunks, however, a quick trip to the dealer resolved that problem. I have been looking for posts relating to the 29L for a few months and this is the first I have found. Im glad to hear others are happy with this model as well.

We picked up the 2012 29l last weekend and spent 4 days in it. It is our first travel trailer. We love everything about it with our only wish is that the slide was alittle deeper, but that is a tradeoff for weight I guess. My kids love the bunks and the outside kitchen works great for beer, juice and bait.

^^I agree the part slide was a concern for us as well but the other features outwheighed that concern. An option for a full slide would be nice though even if it added 500lbs to the unit.

Norm - sounds like you had a great first trip! Congrats. I also see you have started to prioritize your supplies - "beer, juice and bait". Good choices

Prioritizing beer first is a must for a smooth camping trip. We were in such a hurry for the first trip that we forgot things like measuring cups, and spatula and general utensils, but not the beer.

Well...a beer can is 12 oz...so there is your measuring cup....cut the lid off and attach a spork using duct tape and you have a spatula....and utensils??? That is what fingers are made for......

So really - you are all set! Hope you had a good time!
