I'm pretty in "tune" with my truck,car or bus,i "feel" the trailer or toad when i drive.
Others may not be so in "tune".




Anyway,i worry about the unibody and having the "air cushioned" hitch will take the shock off the tow bar and the toad sheet metal.

No, I don't feel the toad at all. . Even with the camera, I can't see it back there at night.

Agreed Ernie. He makes me go and look thru the rear window at night to make sure it's still there. We only "feel" it when we take off initially. Can't even tell it's back there otherwise.

Of course our bus rattles and shakes its way down the road due to the drive shaft needing to be balanced. Maybe that vibration keeps us from "feeling" the toad?
