Towing a Bonair Oxygen on rough roads

Does anyone have experience with pulling a Bonair Oxygen on rough roads? How is the ride? How well does this graceful trailer withstand some bouncing around?
Thanks,
Kaarin

Keep the water tank full or empty

Hi Lawrence,
My advice is to keep the water tank full or empty. If it is partially full, it will start to rock and you could loose control. I need to get a baffled tank or a bladder for mine. I almost lost it on the highway before I discovered the problem. Otherwise, it takes the bumps and rolls very well. I have lost a bit of fiberglass from rocks coming up from the tow vehicle, but that's my own stupid fault.
Oh.....and watch the window latches! They will loosen and your windows will fall out if you haven't secured the latches by glueing or screwing. See other posts on this subject.
Cheers! Pete.

Easy does it everytime.
I have driven our Oxygen on rough roads but not for great distances. The previous reply advising about the water tank and windows is important. Just take your time and go slow and easy. It's all about the journey, not the destination.
Cheers.
