|geoff gwisdala said: (quoted from post at 20:17:08 11/09/11) i have a 2003 dodge ram 2500 HD, 4x4 hemi. i was pulling a JD 2010 w/loader with a bumper pull trailer. it hauled great at 55 to 60 but when i got on the expressway and ran it up to 70 it started to sway. stepped on the gas and straightened out fine, now im going almost 80. as soon as i leveled off speed it started to sway again. (OH CRAP MOMENT HERE) i managed to ride it out using 3 lanes and both shoulders. after catching my breath i repositioned the tractor and decided a gooseneck or 5th wheel with better brakes would be a good idea. JD and i made it home safe. WHEW!!! gosenecks and fifth wheels are more stable|
And people still wonder why the DOT is cracking down on pickup-trailer combos??
Glad you finally got it under control and that no one was hurt.
