I have always just thought it was normal, so I try to store stuff in the bedroom when travelling as the bedroom area is undisturbed. I have a pretty basic hitch, a DSP I believe, came with the trailer. I had a fridge hinge problem and some one suggested trailer bounce could be a problem, although that didn't break the hinge, it may have created the wear and tear. Thoughts? where to look, opinions....
I also have a 2010 Yukon Denali (short wheelbase, AWD). I tow a 2013 25FB. I have used both Blue Ox and EAZ Lift WD hitches. The combination bounces a lot on concrete highways. I think it is just the nature of the tow vehicle.
We often find our cushions on the floor. One time our table detached from the wall (we hit a pretty big pothole that day). We have had three rivets lost inside, which is not a lot for 15,000 miles.
Without the trailer, the Yukon ride on the highway is good, better than a pickup, but not as good as our minivan.
