    Yikes, glad you survived that Dennis!

    Have seen those drop offs and only once had a scary experience where getting back to the travel lane just wasn't happening. I think about that everytime I see them now. Major hazard!

    We were in Oklahoma following a horse trailer and dually when the trailer lifted several feet and I hit the brakes about the time I hit the buckled expansion joint as well. The inside of the toyhauler was a mess, not as bad as yours by miles for sure, but both bikes had jumped out of wheel chocks as the tie downs compressed and were on their sides on each other. I am sure the horses did not do well and felt for the folks who were dealing with that worse situation...I couldn't look.

    On the subject of trailer sway...

    My sis-in-law is storing her Minnie Winnie here and yesterday my UPS driver dropped this heavy item off.

    IMG_3299.JPG
    There are two more boxes I have not opened, this is the main unit

    A Hensley Mfg Cub receiver hitch. I think her main reason was to simplify hooking up as the torsion bar system she got with the unit takes some serious wrangling even for me. This unit stays on the trailer and only has an external stab that fits in the receiver hitch when your ready to tow.Other than the 70#plus weight of the tongue adapter I have moved twice already in the shop...looks interesting.



    Anybody have any info on using one or an opinion...or two

    The Hensley is the state of the art for weight distribution and anti-sway all in one simple unit. They are heavy duty, strong, and the best part, easy to install the trailer and get on down the road. Instead of hooking up the weight distribution bars with that time and energy involved one takes all that time and energy in the set up as you get it and install it. Installation is critical and one must be careful and get it done properly. After that, it's get down the road The folks that have them swear by them. The problems are cost, and installation....Get over those hills and you have something good.

    As for me, I have the Reeves stuff that I have been using for years and based upon my latest problem am happy.....

    Thanks Dennis,

    I have not been asked to install the Hensley, maybe she will have the dealer do it when she takes it in for a few items. But, she is H's sister so maybe I should start reading the installation guide

    RV's, boats and motorcycles...always something to do!

    Spotted in WY a while back

    This looks like a nice setup too. And it's a 310! Maybe someone on here?
