How does yours handle in the wind?
Phil, are you still considering the switch? I now have some miles under my belt with our Challenger GT. Still correcting handling issues but no matter how much I spend it will never handle as good in windy conditions as my 1-ton SRW pulling my 39' fiver.

We just made a car trip from SW Florida to Illinois for a week of pre-holidays with the kids/grandkids. Coming through Mounteagle the winds were kicking up past 40mph and gusts even more. These conditions continued for hours. Right away in the afternoon you quit seeing any TT heading south, not long after that there were not many MH's. It seemed like there continued to be 5th wheels though.

I think I am more disappointed in how my Challenger handles because of my experience with 5th wheels. A MH fits our needs now though so I am not changing.
