Mine is just the Centerline. That video is not mine.

I've not seen tire pressures mentioned. Make sure they're all aired up properly.

I'll definitely be triple checking this the next time I'm out at the trailer.



I should also have mentioned that I am using the 800-1200 lb spring bars which is a little stronger than necessary thought the truck rides fine while towing with them.
You can search my old posts and see the damage I couldn't explain till I saw it happen on the other side. My centerline definitely isn't the one if the video, similar but the cams the trunion bars ride it are extended way beyond the hitch head and that is what came in contact.

By the way I towed for over a year with no issues, then twice in two trips I had very right backing and the contact occurred.

I have never towed with the centerline, but I had this happen with a trailer when I was using the Reese dual cam anti sway. It was adjusted right at the dealer and in the driveway, but did not act right going down the road. What ended up fixing it was to stop at a rest area while on a trip and readjust while everything was loaded and the truck and trailer had "settled in" so to speak. After I did that, no more issues. I might try an on the road look, and see if the adjustment is different.

In addition to the good suggestions so far, I have two questions for you to think about. How much wind is present? Is there any cross wind at all? I bet this trailer has more surface area than your previous trailer.

Is the front of the truck set right? When you hitch up are you measuring the front of the truck to see if you're returning it to 0-50% of the original ride height?


And you can weight the TT tongue without going to a Cat scale place.


I've used this method and it's as close as the scales here in Oregon.

I used figure B.

what kind of tires? I have a 2010 f150 and the original P rated tires were too soft which would cause a feeling of wiggle even pumped up to max psi. Changed to an LT tire with different rating and its alot better
