Well, we slept warmly and well in the Trillium
last night with only a small electric heater. The new 5" foam mattress added over the dinette cushions was plush.
This being the first time i've towed it with the 4runner, and the first time with the widened axle
and shortened tongue, I have some findings.
We traveled about 60 miles, all kinds of terrain, with a 20 mile blast on I-75 at 65-70. Nothing scary, just a few observations:
1) it was pretty bouncy. The axle
and springs are rated 2000#, and the trailer was almost completely unladen. I hope more weight
will hold it down a bit.
2) I think, in view of -#1 above, that I want to fit some shock absorbers. There's not much room under there for them, but i have an idea! Tractor cabs are air-suspended, and have ittybitty shocks. Maybe 3-4 inches travel max. I'll have to investigate
