Great post... curious to see how you've made out since the last update? I have a very similar setup as yours and mine tows very well with no real sway or drift. I do have a little more bounce than I would like, but I think that comes with the territory of a heavy, long trailer. I haven't had mine to the scales yet, but if I do before the end of the season, I'll post them for a comparison. I'm thinking that if you get some of the weight off the rear of the trailer and onto the front, and make sure the tongue is lower than the rear, you should have a nice towing rig. Thanks again for the information, and hope to see a favorable update!

Just a Quick update before i head out - hooked my tv & tt up & took them out in the street and measured trailer frame and low & behold the front was up 3" dropped my hitch head 2" and adjusted the tilt of the head 1 notch(for more wieght distribution to the front axle)hooked it back up and the tongue is now down 1 1/4" so..... we will see havent had it back to the scale yet but definately will.

That alone will give you a better "feel" as you navigate thru traffic.
