Hi Carl,
We have a weight distributing hitch, an Ezlift rated for 800 lbs. tongue weight and we use one sway control bar. We've had virtually no problems with say since we installed them. We bought the wdh after we bought the trailer and bought the sway control bar six months later. Hope this helps.

All packed up in the driveway & ready to head out!

2004 Element; 5 speed manual transmission, all wheel drive. We get about 18 mpg when towing the Scamp.

Steve, your Element looks great. Such a versatile vehicle with the rear seat design. We almost bought a Scion XB for the BH. It was almost the same color as your Element.

Thanks for the pex webpage, trainjunkie. I hope to install a water heater someday, and didn't know where to start.
Lots of good information, photos and advice. Much appreciated!

Our rig in action, after sitting under the carport for the last 20 years! New tires and wheels of course, not to mention hours and hours of scrubbing the inside with vinegar and various industrial types of cleansers.

Nice Filbert. Looks like you need a draw bar (aka Stinger) to get the tongue down so the trailer tows level.

Make good memories every single time you camp!

Hey Donna, you're speaking Trailer to me when all I understand is poor English. I know how good you are helping us newbies, so can you explain more or send me a couple of links in Towing 101? We were surprised by how high the back of the Sierra was being that it's just a standard work truck and not one of those wannabe monster trucks! It would be nice to level the trailer with the truck. Do I need one of those "drop" doohickies? Thanks Donna, and anyone else that would like to help a fellow out.

Well, it looks like the image will not show up. I've tried going to advanced and choose the file, but all it says is UPLOADING for 20 minutes. Any suggestions?

I had a similar problem until I found that if I used Paint to change the size of my files they popped up more quickly.
Open Paint, open your file in Paint, choose Resize on the Home tab, select Pixels and change the largest one to 1000. Then resave your pic, use Save or Save As.
Hope this helps.

Did you realize you were going to be learning a new language here?
Check out this thread for a discussion of those "drop" doohickies
Drop bar ball mount for Triple e

There are other threads, but this one seemed to show some different types.
