Our TT's both survived Sandy last October without a problem. :-)

I second the suggestion to fill your holding tanks if you're that concerned. A couple hundred extra pounds towards the bottom of the camper should help.

If you're at a seasonal location, you could install screw in anchors like the ones used for dog runs. they make them heavy duty and can be purchased at places like Tractor supply. Just screw them into the ground under the corners and cable them to the frame. Have thought about doing this in back of my house where the TT lives inbetween trips.

Yeah you will be fine at 30mph, mine gets more then that on a regular basis side to the wind coming across a field here at home. It also survived Irene and Sandy, where gusts were well above 80MPH but that wind came through the woods and not across the field so it was deflected somewhat. I try to keep the fresh water tank full in extreme wind events for ballast.

I've been through 45 mph winds in a popup camper and it was rock solid. It swayed of coarse, but never moved a bit off of its position.

You know I thought about this same thing over Labor day weekend. We had great weather during the day,but at night. We had crazy thunder storms with high winds. There were gust up to 40 to 45 MPH. Our Eagle handled it with no problem. That is some great advice to fill the holding tank. And hook to the tow vehicle. At one point I thought of bringing in the slides if it got real bad.

You should have no problems. Like someone else mentioned hook up the tow vehicle for added safety to make you feel safer. You are going to have movement in windy conditions but if you want to you could always buy several hydraulic jacks and place them under the frame. Use a piece of 2x4 in between the jacks and the frame.
