RE: Trailer hitch with sway bars

I just got an email from another camper dealer. This dealer told me if there’s nothing wrong with your sway bars we transfer from one camper to another. This camper dealer said if there is something wrong with the sway bars then a technician would suggest getting a new one. My swag bars are 11 years old. I don’t see nothing wrong with the sway bars. You can say I’ve been had by the camper dealer who sold us our new camper. I should have investigated the sway bar issue more. I just took the camper dealer at his word. When in doubt you find out and ask questions.

RE: Trailer hitch with sway bars

If this is the style of HD setup you have, then the dealer is just being a d!$%.. This is what I have and it's over 22 years old and my dealer installed it and adjusted the hitch head height to match the new trailer tongue, which was higher then my old TT. They did that job while I was going thru the walk thru of the trailer. Didn't charge me any extra $$ either.. All they had to do was put the stirrups on the trailer tongue and then adjust the hitch head to match, which was adjustable to begin with. Maybe your hitch is not rated for the size of the new TT you got? My WD hitch head is #14,000 with a #12,000 ball on it. The bars are #1000 rated so well within the specs of the new TT I got and still have and it all still works just fine.. Good luck! Mitch This is the type of sway bars I have that you have pictured

RE: Trailer hitch with sway bars

I traded in my 2012 travel trailer for a brand new 2023 travel trailer. My old sway bars are black with the chains that have the pins. If I knew how to take a picture I could show you my sway bars. The brackets for the sway bars you mount on to the travel trailer itself. The dealer told me I could have someone come with me and install my old sway bars to the new camper. I’m not real technical so I know I would not install the sway bars correctly. Like I said before the dealer is telling me due to liability issues the dealer can not install my old hitch. Now I’m thinking the dealer just wanted to make more money?

Trailer hitch with sway bars

Bought a new camper. Camper dealer says he can not install our old hitch to our new camper due to liability issues. Is this correct or not.

Gatlinburg, pigeon forge, & sevierville Tennessee

Has anyone retired down here and worked here? Does anyone know of any year around campgrounds ? The first of this year my daughter moved to Knoxville Tennessee so we are visiting this week with thoughts of one day moving down here.

RE: 2023 camping season

Just thought I would ask. I don’t remember if it was or rv that had an article out wondering with the cost of everything going up if that would stop people from going camping.

2023 camping season

Are you still going or cutting back this year due to rising costs? The campground I camp at your having a hard time reserving campsites.
