Nearly the same percentage are incorrectly hitched.

You're making the case for, "ignorance is bliss"?

That, "what is best" (even, "what is true") is a trivial concern?

If one thinks a Hensley style hitch is gimmick, then purchase a used one. Paint and refurbish it. Set it up in several configurations of applied force. Get the scale numbers for each lash up. Run it hard at 55+ across lanes of traffic, throttle-on, cranking that wheel hard over.

You don't like the result, come back and post as to exactly why. Then sell it for a profit.

On a yearly basis, I see more Airstreams on the road than almost all the rest of you combined. Of every two dozen it may be that 3-4 are even in the ballpark as to being correctly hitched. And that's seen from travel in the opposite direction.

Even the basics aren't done. Nose-down Airstream is the most common sighting.

Maybe that's more comfortable . . . .

And yet they travel down the road just fine, without your help.

Another thread hijacked by the pro pride people. The op only asked about a sway control adjustment.
