Lucky you... I wanted to leave too but weather here will be ****ty this weekend so I decided to stay home. Hopefully next weekend will be better because it is the last weekend to camp up here.

Nice setup BTW!

2012 F-150 4x4 pulling a Crossroads Zinger 32QB. This camper pushes the 150 limits as sway is a bit of a problem. I already installed an Air Lift kit but these flimsy P rating tires make handling a challenge.

Yes, LT metric tires, and you would probably appreciate stiffer, HD shocks to go with the Air Lift. I put on Ford's HD Payload shocks, there are others.

Actually the Ford's HD Payload option is probably the best/cheapest way to go when buying new, and you want a half way decent suspension for carrying heavy loads. But it's not available in all configurations.

I seem to get a "floating" sensation when towing my 32QB. I have chain WD and friction sway bar. What else can I do other than tires? As I mentioned, I already installed the Air Lift kit.

A better WDH with built in sway control and tune the setup. I have no sway with my equalizer. I do inflate my tires to 42psi though. Good balance is key. My tongue weight is about 900lbs.
