We are driving in the same wind, and maybe a day ahead of you coming west. We're towing our new Parkliner
with a Nissan xterra 4wd. No problems or concerns with the tow vehicle but those winds from Laramie to Rawlins yesterday were insane! We pulled off about 50 miles west of Laramie, and sat for about 2 hours in an old closed gas station to wait it out. Finally went around it along highway 30 to Rawlins and by then the winds had died enough for our comfort to make it easily into Rock Springs. I think they were blowing around the 25-30 range with similar gusts at that point. Today we only made it as far as West Wendover, NV and stopped because of the high wind warnings extending form just past here to basically Reno. We could definitely feel the increase in the head winds as we came into here during the last 20-30 miles. Very frustrating! The trailer is towing beautifully, but it's definitely light
. We're staying at KOAs along the way and need to get home.
Our question is- does filling our water tank and the added weight
help with stability in the high wind? We just picked ours up and have purposely been waiting to go through our water sterilization, etc at home and just running light as we cross the country. Maybe we should fill up for ballast?
