PP Sudden Slalom Uneventful

We took our 1970 25 foot Caravanner and our 2014 Mercedes M350 Bluetec on our first long trip with our PP. Before selecting the PP, I read many posts here. All positive comments about the PP handling high cross winds, trucks passing at high closing speed, etc., were proven correct on our 2,000 mile trip through Northern California, Oregon and Western Idaho. The PP is a great hitch, the right choice for us and well worth the money! And the ride quality is fantastic. About 25 miles from home, we came around a sharp curve on a divided highway to find several large (100 pound plus) rocks in our lane, having fallen off an overloaded utility trailer. With only enough time to instinctively draw upon many years of autocross and track driving experience, we did a sudden slalom at highway speed to avoid the rocks. With the PP, it was absolutely uneventful. For those who think the PP is "too expensive," think again.

May be what you do when you see rocks on the road in your lane.
