Trailer Walking

Sorry I haven't gotten back with what has been going on with trailer, been on vacation. I had a friend hook trailer up to her suburban and we pulled it down the highway for abour 20 miles and trailer was fine, no swaying from side to side. My tv went to shop and am having everything looked at, they seem to think it might be shocks. Had tires rotated and balanced and hope to get the problem fixed. When I said trailer was walking I meant swaying side to side. Everyone was really helpful and I am glad to have the forum to go to for help. Thanks everyone will get back to you when I get tv back. Paula

I missed what TV you have, but I just replaced the shocks on my 2007 Tahoe with autoride and the ride is much improved. I actually just replaced front not rear, but now I think I need to do the rear also as I'm not that happy with the ride yet.

trailer walking

Our tv is a 2005 toyota tundra, We had new shocks put on front and back, relined the front end hope everything is fixed. We plan on taking trailer for test drive this weekend. Need to get everything fixed before the Vintage Rally. Will let you know what happens this weekend.

If you do not have enough tongue weight, the trailer will have more of a tendency to sway. Tongue weight loaded should be at least 10% but not more than 15% of the trailer's gross weight.

Truck or trailer tires that are not inflated properly can contribute to sway.

Tires that are not rated for the loads can contribute to sway, especially the rear tires on the tow vehicle.
