First trip

We took QUEtSE down to Old Mill Stream in Lancaster for a 1 nighter friday. I LOVE my kitchen counter space and bathroom! No glitches at all really since we previewed things in the driveway. This was the first time we slept in it, and the cushions were very comfortable. I think putting the bed out is a pain, and the 2 back rest cushions did seperate down by my feet. DH screwed 2 little 3" pieces of wood on the back of the cushion that should alleviate that problem for next time. The double sleeping bag with zipout sheets worked great. The table is great when you're using it, but it seems kind of big and in the way when not in use. The kitchen was a dream compared to the one in the pop-up. I got these really cool nesting pots from Camping World for Christmas and the heavy bottoms help alot with the flame being so close to the pan bottom. And, did I mention that I have oooodles of counter space? Cooking went well. The sink doen't seem to leak any more. Shower...ahhh...no more moldy campground showers and MY OWN potty....It's great !!! As far as towing it towed really well. DH tried to get it to sway and it always tracked right on. We got passed by trucks on 222, and no problem. We didn't go down any big mountains yet, so that test will be next week on I81 - Yikes. We did feel some gentle bobbing on some back roads, but not side to side sway. Old Mill Stream was packed with huge class A's, (there were 3 clubs there) so we stuck out. We got lots of positive comments on the QUE, from "Oh how cute, that looks really nice" to "I didn't know Sunline made that" to What does the "5.4 SE mean?" So, folks...what does the 5.4 stand for?

Sunline Fan is an unknown quantity at this point
Pam,

I'm glad you guys had a good first night! I was wondering what the 5.4 meant too.

Glad it went well. Your review echos my thoughts EXACTLY! LOVE that full bath!

As my DH so 'eloquently' put it. the Que is 5.4 meters long. I guess it goes with the "European Atyling"!

Do y'all have sway control or anything on that? We had sway issues on our trip.

We did not have sway control or a weight distribution hitch. We're towing with a Chevy Trail Blazer. The whole rig sits nice and level when we're all hooked up. We were very careful how we loaded the trailer so that if we put 20 pounds in the rear we put 20 in the front. We had no water in the tanks or water heater. Also, we never went over 60 mph. Don't remember if you have the RE or SE, or if that would make a difference. DH actually TRIED to make it sway (he's an engineer and they do these things) and it wouldn't. Are you sure you aren't just feeling an up and down bobbing?

When I think bobbing, I think of the typical single axle trailer 'bob'. I think a sway control is ALWAYS a good thing.

IF you to look at sway control, you have to think of it this way.....

The controls are only used AFTER sway happens (for whatever reason). You will find out when you need it AFTER its too late.

Frankly, a friction sway is about $80 and is cheap insurance.

Yes, but our TV is a lot lighter then yours, and we have some rear spring sag. We are thinking that she will be OK with a new set of rear springs.

Because GM played around with that name, so when you tell me the year, and the name, I can see you have the larger version.

The small one I think they just called Blazer----when they were making both. I am surprised yours would have issues, with so few miles. Have you considered inflatable air bags?

We didn't have issues. It was tinybluetj that had towing issues. Our TrailBlazer has a few issues but nothing to do with towing...things like wind noise, the key fob doesn't work, the hatch handle fell off, but nothing serious so far.

Sorry for the confusion! I wondered why the larger Trailblazer would have had an issue with this!!
