Getting very close to owning a 16 ft Scamp or Casita...inexperienced in towing (fast learner) - how do you handle the vacuum (suction) created by passing an 18 wheeler on 2 lane road as it barrels by you? I was in an SUV towing band stuff and got in between two semis, and the trailer sort of levitated off rd. Many thanks!

About the only thing you can do is realize when the semi is coming up on you and then just hold a stright path with two hands on the wheel.....
This is one of the reasons I like a Sway Bar (others do fine without it but i feel more comfortable with it and i drove semi's for thirty years)
