I bought some of the hangers Michael suggested and it works for me. I did have to stretch the opening a bit with my heat gun. Since I started using these in the back lockers of my FC 30, things stay in place. These lockers are as far from the pivot point you can get and any vertical motion is exaggerated there. I don't think it is caused by the wrong hitch or too much tire pressure, at least in my rig.

Why not just slow down?

We just take a piece of foam, actually three for three closets and stuff them on top of the hangers. Has never happened since.

I would think if hangers bouncing off the rods is combined with components/screws/rivets coming loose it would be good to look into tire pressures and running gear balance, hitch stiffness and adjustment, truck tire and suspension stiffness, truck shock absorbers ability to control the rear axle on rough roads, as well as speed on rough or segmented roadways.

We have spent some time and money getting these things in order as best we can, use no more truck than we need, and have not had things bouncing around inside our Airstream. That said, there are roadways about the country that have had us slowing down and seeking another route on occasion.

Would/could some one know of a fix for this issue? The bedrooms are the same layout but we seem to have a bit more up and down of the back of the trailer.
We had/have the same problem. And yes, we have the corrugated clothes rods in our 2011 International. Factory tires, Reese hitch, F150 TV. What we discovered however is that this (pretty much) only happens when the closets are too full. We're fulltimers and it took a while to get all our clothes distributed here and there but once we cleaned out the closets a bit everything was fine. Hope that works for you.

That clearly works on the older narrow bodies where the curved wall is close to the rod. Don't know the distances of the newer bodies.

Another trick would be to alternate the direction of the hanger and let the cloths keep one another on the rod.
We have a 28' with the same issue in our Wardrobes on either side of the bed. Just do as Howie has articulate and your issue will go away. Works very well.
No need for all these DIY fixes that might or might not work.
