    2021 Reflection 150 Series 268BH considerable sway under light winds

    Anyone else have this model or this problem with the 150 series? My truck is more than enough to tow it. There isn't an obvious setup issue with my equipment and locked out helps a bit so I'm not using the Turning Point.

    I have the 260RD and I tow using the turning point feature with no problems even in moderate winds. My loaded trailer pin weight is 1580 lbs. Have you taken your's to a CAT scale? If not, I would suggest you do at least once to see where you are. If your trailer is loaded correctly (not tail heavy), you need to get the alignment of the suspension checked in my opinion.

    Thanks for the reply. I had it weighed today and my pin weight is very low. Around 1100 I need to tell my wife to load things up in the front. She'll enjoy hearing that. That coupled with the model having bunks in the rear, storage in the rear and bikes on the back I believe I have the issue in hand. Even the fresh water tank is slightly behind the rear axle.

    Need to gain probably 500lbs in the front.
