Don't you just love it...We pay the highest taxes for roads in California than any other state and what do we get. Overcrowded freeways, horribly maintained and designed freeways and more toll roads. (sorry, it's a touchy subject for me)

We have a 25' 04 Safari and was towing with a 1500 Dodge Ram using a Reese WD, with a High Performace Sway, using#1200 WD bars and we also experianced the concete Shake, Rattle and Roll. We recently upgraded our TV to a 2500 GMC and at the same time, lowered our WD bars to #800. Recently we towed over the same ( St. Cloud, Mn to Clearwater, Mn) concrete road and had very little of the Shakes. I can't say if the difference was from the truck or the lower rated WD bars. Whatever it was it made a big difference.You might want to check out your WD bars and see if they're rated to high, for your setup.

We have a 22' Airstream and when we traveled on I35 between Minneapolis and southern Iowa we experianced the constant up and down as we traveled on the concrete sections of road. The motion almost put me to sleep

Thank You UWE & TPI

Hi, Thank You for your actual experiences with Bilstein shocks. [UWE & TPI] I will just save that shock money for something else. Plan to move out of California anyhow. Any Airstreamers in Idaho; Thinking of northern Idaho?
