effect.


This is good to hear. I have a DMI spring loaded hitch under my truck. It has a receiver that allows quite a bit of up and down movement. Maybe this is the issue.

So I just got back from an empty test run. I put about 300 pounds on the front of the trailer and it made it ride good by my standards. I took the weight back off and it was back to bouncing. So this looks like an easy fix.

Thanks everyone.

It won't take you long to add 300 lbs. if you put a spare tire, toolbox, binders , chains , straps, jack,and blocking on tongue of trailer.

(quoted from post at 21:51:42 04/16/17) I have a PJ low profile deckover 21FT. deck , 3Ft. dovetail with 3 stand up pamps and 32" from top of deck to ground. Trailer pulls nice and Is less top heavy compared to some trailers.



I sure miss my 19+3 PJ bp. Thought a 20 +5' gn would be great as it is the same overall length, but am disappointed in the way it takes a corner and the 5' dovetail is too low to the ground and gets high centered on some driveways. PJ bp's have a nice long tongue so they pull well...never had any whipping with mine behind a Dodge dually, even when overloaded Very Happy
