We just purchased our 2013 Bambi 16' Sport from Southwest Coaches in Corona, CA. back in August.
We recently returned from our first trip out with the AS to Yosemite National Park with the return trip down Hwy 395 in the Eastern Sierra.
The dealer sold us the same set up and reccomends it to all buyers of their coaches. I was sold after my mobil RV guy Brett gave the product his thumbs up. He's been servicing all our trailers since our first one back in 2002. They are careful to adjust the system so not to over torque the settings so you don't have issues with rivets popping on the trailer.
We towed a 17' Casita before the AS that used the Valley sway control and equalizer bars w/ chains.
I can't tell you how much happier we are with the new set up. No more chains to adjust, no more separate sway bar to install. It takes me no more than a few minutes to get everything set up and go.
I use white lithium grease on the bars and ball. Much less messy than the old liquid grease. When we get back home I just use an old car towel and wipe the grease off the ends of the bars and the ball and then reapply when we get ready to go on the next trip. I even use the original box the bars came in to store them. Sure the hitch is a bit heavy but I can't even think of the alternative if I was to tow without it.
Anyway, the first trip was 1,000 miles with lots of winding mountain roads and we hit some fierce cross winds coming down 395. The Casita towed like a dream and now with this set up our AS tows even better!!!!
The only thing I had to get used to was the extra width of the AS. The Casita was only 6 1/2 feet wide and the AS is 8 feet wide. It takes a little more attention to stay within the white lines of the freeways and highways.
