Steering is great. The issue is however this thing is a massive wall that easily get pushed around.
Anything over 60 mph and it wants to sway, actually the truck does more moving than anything. I just don't feel comfortable.
I'm currently looking at the Anderson No-Sway system. What would be the advantage or disadvantage over the Equal-i-zer brand?
It sounds like your WD hitch is not set up properly, your front fender should return too it's unhitch height or within a 1/2". If your front fender is raised by 1" then you are light on the front axle and this will help cause the uncomfortable feeling along with the trailer.
Here are the steps I took when setting up my WD hitch:
1- Find a good level area
2- Measure the fender's directly over the axle's, I use a piece of tape as a mark
3- Hitch up the camper, you want the trailer slightly nose down, this is where a bubble level is handy.
3a- You might have too move the hitch head up or down on the shank, too get the camper nose down a hair.
4- Remeasure the fender (front)
5- Raise's too much, tilt the hitch head back this will apply more force back to the front axle.
Lower's the front, tilt the hitch head up this will take some of the force off the front axle.
Don't worry too much about the rear fender, it probably won't drop more than 1"-1.75"
I was having all kinds of handling issue's with my truck and camper until I found the Keystone RV forum and learned that my truck hitch was set up wrong.
